Get Well for my Grandson

Welcome.

We have spent the weekend waiting for texts to hear how our grandson is, as he has been unwell and ended up in hospital.  We haven't visited him, so today I made him a card. 

Edit/update - as of Tuesday afternoon, our young man is home again - on medicine for another 5-6 weeks! Thank you all for your good wishes and prayers.


 Typical three year old he loves vehicles, particularly large and noisy road work ones!


I had won some FLONZ Craft stamps recently, and deliberately selected this set with heavy machinery in it.


The vehicles were stamped in various distress inks and detail added with shiny pens and a black calligraphy pen.


I added brown, green and blue chalks for the background


The final detail were the roads - stitched ribbon!


And a heartfelt wish!!

I am linking this to:

Thank you for visiting - any comments you may leave are deeply appreciated.
May your day be blessed.
