A card for Nan

Sadly last weekend my very elderly Nan had a fall. She lay unconscious in her house alone until, prompted by the fact she did not answer the phone, my Dad drove to her house and found her. She has fractured her pelvis, is dazed and confused and was suffering some hypothermia after being on the cold floor overnight.

Nan has always been fiercely determined to stay at home until she died, and being 90 years of age she's done very well so far, but this is the second fall she's had so there are grave doubts that she will be allowed to return home after she recovers.

I saw her in hospital today, she is looking much better and was less confused than she has been all week. Fingers crossed she continues to recover well. Tomorrow we find out where she will be moved to for her rehabilitation.

I made this little Get Well card to take to her today. As a typical Nan, she's very proud of my card making efforts. :)

I've entered this card into the following challenges:
Stamp With Fun - Green/Pink
Easy Craft Projects- Pretty pastels
