Lester's get well


I am a member of a private club, and I am on the sympathy committee. (I guess they call it that for lack of a better name) Anyway, the president of our club, and a dear sweet man is in the hospital. I'm not sure what the ailment is, but from what I hear, it is pretty serious. He celebrated his 85th birthday last year, and has pretty much been healthy until then. He had a bout of something a while back, had a surgery, and took about 2 months to recover, and now he is back in the hospital with complications I believe. Don't quote me, but I'm pretty sure that is what is happening. Anyway, I think of Lester like a grandfather. He is so sweet, and he will tell you like it is. I really care about him, and hope he gets well soon.


I made his card as part of the splitcoaststampers sketch challenge. I used vanilla as my base then kiwi kiss as my mount. I then took another piece of vanilla and ran it thru the cuttlebug using one of their folders, then split the image the way the sketch asked us to. I then stamped the dragonfly in always artichoke, and added the get well sentiment, some hodgepodge hardware and a ribbon on the bottom. I really hope he likes his card.
thanks for looking.
