Bear Hugs

Hello, what a day, we've had lots of rain this afternoon, with lightning and thunder.
My hubby decided to ride his pushbike this morning (before the rain) in to his outpatient's appointment to make sure his shoulder blade had healed etc and ended up going over the top of his handlebars and looks like he may have rebroken his ribs again. The doctor only told him his shoulder was okay and didn't send him off for an x-ray or anything so he is now in lots of pain again and I've set him back up in the spare room so he can try and sleep in a more vertical position. He is now back to square one and I'm not sure whether his workplace will be happy to keep his job open for another 6 - 8 weeks! He didn't let me know until he got home and I could see as soon as he came through the front door that there was a problem. He rode and pushed the bike part way home and also got caught in the rain. I am cross and upset at the same time. He should have taken the car and paid for parking!!
Well enough griping, here is my card for today.

The basecard is SU Certainly Celery and the very bright pink card is from stash. I've used two different DP's from DCWV - The Sweet Stack. The bear is from a clear stamp set from Kanban called Wooly Bears - Isobel. It comes with two bears and some clothes, heart, bows and words. I've used the dress stamp and one of the bow stamps inked in SU Pink Passion then stamped onto a scrap of DP from My Mind's Eye. The bear was stamped on white card, coloured with Copic Markers and then cut out and adhered to a Nellie Snellen Oval diecut in the bright pink.
The inside of the card has a layer of bright pink and then the same DP as the dress.
I used a scallop nestie die to cut the pink piece and then a circle die for the white circle. The words on the front and inside are again from the same set, inked in Basic Brown and then I went over them with a Gel Pen which gives it a slight embossed look.

    Poor Adrian...poor you! Can totally understand how you feel....Ken drives those huge tv screens around the country, and sets 'em up at football stadiums, races, concerts, etc.....he recently went on a long trip, down south, feeling really unwell, but instead of getting somebody else to do the job, he carried on working, and ended up in A&E because couldn't stop throwing up! Three days in bed with a very nasty bug was the result!

  8. And NO....I wasn't the nasty bug...haaaaa!
