Feel Better

This card was made for our niece's husband.  He was injured in a car accident. He is a police officer and was on duty when the accident happened. He was hit by a car being driven the wrong way on the highway.  From the mangled mess of his car that was left, we are very lucky that he is still alive.  He has been in the hospital for the past 2 weeks and is finally getting to come home tomorrow!!  With my being laid up from surgery, I've not been able to visit him. But I've been sending prayers and strength his way.  While he still has a ways yet to go, I hear he is already making a marvelous recovery.

With the help of my oldest son, I was able to get a few supplies together and get myself near my computer. I designed this card in the Silhouette software and print and cut it on my Cameo.  I used the digital kit "Vanilla Noir" by Quirky Twerp. The sentiment is by Arty Pants Digital Stamps, it's part of the Card Sentiments 2 set.

With the right amount of luck, this card was mailed in time so that it will arrive for his big homecoming!
