Get Well Soon Card

Hello lovely bloggers,

We are back in Indonesia at last - no matter how great Singapore is, there is no place like home.
My small surgery went off well and the biopsy is clear so I am more than relieved.

I have some good news to share - the hospital in Singapore where I had my surgery will be happy to receive my cards which they would in turn give to their patients. How nice is that? So I am going to parcel them to the Chief Nurse and she would do the needful.

Here is a card I made a while ago for Aleeza's teacher when the poor lady broke her ankle... and since she loves curry, I packed some chicken curry and Indian bread along. Yes, the chicken curry did not stain the card - thank heavens for that as I have done great things in the past. Lol.

This card is rather simple... the flowers are from Hobby Craft in the UK - have hoarded them for million years so much so that the foam dots have lost their sticking power. The tiny daisies are from a craft store in Mumbai called, "Something Special" - trust me it is like an Aladdin's cave. 
The green paper is handmade from India as well as is the paper out of which the leaves have been punched.
Simple but pretty, is it not? And it touched the heart of the recipient so what else could I wish for?

Hope you like it...

Happy to blog again.

With love and crafty hugs,

So glad to hear that all is well Monica.....I can't believe I have missed out on so much on your blog. Actually, I can....I just don't seem to be finding as much time for the computer at the moment. What terrific news that the hospital will take your lovely cards. This one is wonderful, I especially like the green paper background.
