Hugs for my Niece


I made this card for my 3yr old niece, who fell yesterday and broke her leg. She was in such a lot of pain and had to endure surgery last night, as the bones had moved and needed to be set right. Hopefully she will be home today :) She is such an active child who loves to run around and be outdoors all the time so this is going to be so hard on her. She's too young to have crutches and will have to be pushed around either in a wheelchair or stroller. I've no doubt that it's going to be equally as tough on her mum.

I also carried the design to the inside of this one. This is the first time I've done the inside and I like it!!!!


Card ingredients:
Papers: Pink Paislee Fascinating, K & Co. Que Sera Sera
and BG Urban Prairie
Distress Inks - Fired Brick, Broken China, Frayed Burlap, Dried Marigold, Tattered Rose & Spiced Marmalade.
Blossoms: Prima - Got Flowers Winter
Ribbon - East of India

Poor niece! I can't imagine an active 3 year old stuck in a wheelchair. :(

The card is lovely, and I'm happy to see you've branched to the insides.
