Killer Curry!!!

Hello my friends. Just a quick swing-by to show you a get-well card I made late last night. The colouring is quite hurried but I had to have it done quickly to take on a hospital visit this evening.

My friend was dragged to the ER late last night by her husband for what she dismissed as a severe case of heart-burn after a particularly potent curry dinner. As it turned out she was having a heart attack and was admitted immediately. She spent the rest of the night hooked up to various machines, and very likely to be so for the rest of the week. It's serious, of course, I cannot help but laugh at the irony of the last thing she said to me yesterday afternoon: "We're having a killer curry for dinner tonight"! I bet she'll have plenty to say about that when I see her. LOL.

Here's the get-well card. I'm playing with Chocolate Baroque's new April release stamps ... so versatile!
I made my own background paper by using a couple of stamps from Chocolate Baroque's
Oriental Florals - A Thing Of Beauty. I used TH's Tattered Rose and Peeled Paint on cream CS.
The sentiment is from CB's Words of Comfort and Cheer stamped with VersaMagic Jumbo Java.
The star of this card is CB's brand new Springtime Edges. Gorgeous row of spring blooms!

Here's a close-up of the flowers. They are primulas and I know that is NOT their natural
colour. But hey, my house my rules! LOL. Besides, I wanted to give her a bunch of peppy
flowers ... so bright pink they shall be! I used Caran d'Ache Suprasoft pencils.

Here's the inside: I stamped the primulas with TH's Tattered Rose to make a border.

Sending my blooms to these challenges:

Divas By Design: AG - and they're having a Birthday Blog Hop too!

That's it from me for today. Thanks for stopping by. I'm off to see my friend. We've had news that she's doing really well and it was just a minor attack. There will be much laughter about the events that lead to her internment, for sure.  I'm glad she listened to her husband and allowed him to cart her off to the hospital where she got the attention she needed and tragedy was averted. There's a lesson in there for all of us.

I doubt if I would have gone to the doctor so willingly. Perhaps I should listen to my husband more often... nah! What a boring marriage that would be!

  20. This sure doesn't look like a last minute kind of card, it's beautiful, and you even had time to make your own DP as background! I'm sure your friend loved it, hope she gets better soon.

  21. It's a beautiful card and I'm sure very much appreciated. I'm glad to hear that your friend is okay - I do hope makes a speedy recovery.

  22. Love the card you have done for your friend!!! What a great image. And what a good thing that your friend did listen to her hubby... maybe I should also listen to my hubby...

    Thanks for joining our fortnightly challenge here at A Song in your He{art}. Hope you will join us next time DT Crafting Vicky.

  23. From what I've read it's very common for women to feel heart attack symptoms differently & less 'severely', and that's why it's often so much more serious when women do have them! I too am glad she listened to her husband (but like you, I don't necessarily think I'll take it up as a hobby myself!) As for the killer curry...oh, that will be funny for a long time, I think, since she's going to be ok!
    Gorgeous card - now you've got to make one with a curry on it!

  24. love how you have used your image very creative, thanks for sharing over on divas by designs x

  25. This is such a beautiful design. Love the colors and that amazing coloring of the image. I also love the stitching inside and out.
