Sending Sympathy and Prayers

Another day closer to the end of this year. I am astounded at how fast the year has gone by. It's been a warm day here but it's really going to heat up over the next couple of days to about 38C, so will end the year with a scorcher!
It's my OH's birthday tomorrow and we are going to have the family and a few friends over for a barbeque in the evening - hopefully it will have cooled down a little bit. We have daylight saving as well at the moment so at 7p.m. it will be in reality 6p.m. and it will probably still be warm. That's okay, we can sit outside, the big umbrella is still up, just have to remember to get some bug spray so the mossies don't get us, LOL.
My oldest daughter's boyfriend got bitten by a dog yesterday while trying to protect her little daschund/terrier. They had gone camping, arrived and set up and then had gone straight down to the beach and five minutes later he was bitten so that was the end of their very brief trip. His dad and partner had gone too, so they stayed and packed up everything and my daughter drove him back here, dropped the dog off and then took him into the hospital, the doctor was at first worried that the tendon was damaged but thinks because he can move his wrist and rotate it that he doesn't need surgery. They gave him a tetanus shot and antibiotics, cleaned it up and I think stitches but not sure. He had two deep puncture wounds on his forearm. The people that owned the dog didn't even stay to find out how he was - just collected their dog and left. They got the rego number of the car and filed a report but whether anything will be followed up they don't know.
Enough chat, LOL. Onto sharing my card for today.
I decided to make a sympathy card as I only have a couple of these in my stash.
The basecard is SU Early Espresso and then I cut a piece of SU Really Rust and put through a cuttlebug embossing folder with little hearts on it. The image and sentiments are all from the same set by SU called "Love and Sympathy" and were inked in Really Rust onto white cardstock from stash and the backed with Early Espresso. I cut the quote sentiment into a tag and added an eyelet with my Cropadile and a small piece of brown ribbon to finish off.
I would like to enter this into Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenge #2 ~ TAG YOUR IT!! Add a tag to your creation.
