BC235 - Fall Blooms

Hello! - Yes, I am "late" for the Blogger Challenge this week but it was the least thing on my mind this past Friday. My mom ended up in the ER on Friday morning. We thought she might be having a Heart Attack. When she got to the ER her Blood Pressure was 201/97 which was not good at all. They gave her a Nytroglycerin tablet and some BP meds right away. Took an EKG, Blood Tests and a Chest X-Ray. A couple hours later her BP was down considerable and the tests all showed normal readings. They felt she should be admitted though and be monitored for her BP which started to rise again. She spent Friday and most of Saturday at the hospital. They sent her home late yesterday afternoon with a bunch of medication now for her BP and so far she is doing okay. It was pretty scary and I spent as much time as I could at the hospital both days while still trying to look after Coleen.

So here is the card I managed to finish on Thursday before all this happened. It's a card that uses a Sticker that I've had for a very long time. I like the Pumpkins/Flowers in the sticker and built my card around it.

I did stamp and emboss the sentiment with Copper EP, added a punched/distressed flower and a punched border as well.

Here is a close-up of the flower.

Have a great week.

Oh Ida, it is so scary to have a parent suddenly ill. I am so glad they seem to have gotten her BP under control! My best to her and to you!

Your card is super cool. When I first started making cards, it was always with stickers (sort of like today's magnolia's) They really do make pretty cards!

Oh, my! This is wonderful! What a fabulous sticker, and you designed such a beautiful card around it. Very warm and festive in a fall kind of way. I know -- very scary about your Mom. Hoping it's an isolated incident and she will be feeling better now.
