Today I made a card for my neighbor who has been in the hospital. They found a malignant tumor behind his eye and he is going through some aggressive treatment. While in there he got a staff infection and is now very weak. I found out this morning that he is not doing very well. His wife has been spending most of each day at the hospital with him. These are such wonderful people. I am sure receiving encouraging cards will help to bring some happiness to them. I'm not sure how long he will be in the same hospital, so I am attaching their home address if you would like to send a card. Thank you for your help.

I will tell you about my card. I wanted it to look masculine but did add some fall flowers -- I think with the colors, the flowers are ok and it still looks masculine. I used a piece of fall looking design paper and added an embossed piece, created with the Cuttlebug Argyle embossing folder on the left side. It was sponged with Distress Ink. There is a small border between the embossed panel and stripped background that was a piece cut off when using a die border. I don't remember which die it was. The sentiment is from the JustRite "Just A Note" set and the Frame is from the JustRite "Vintage Floral Labels". The flowers were created using the small "Pear" punch. The Flourish was die cut from the Marianne LR0150 die. The Accent on the left side of the card is from the Spellbinders "Ironworks Motifs" and the corners are from the Spellbinders "Lace Doily Accents".
