Sketch & Care

I am so pleased and delighted to say that Rosemary chose my card for a Honorable Mention in last weeks challenge at Casology so this card is also dedicated to the Casology DT's  too.Thanks guy's !x

                    This weeks challenge at Less is More is a sketch and this weeks Casology cue card is CARE so it fitted in perfect as I had been looking for ideas to do a thank you card for a local chemist.
My youngest suffers from a severe peanut allergy and last week he went to one of those all you can eat buffets with friends and although he read all the ingredients, we think through cross contamination (a spoon being placed back in the wrong place maybe) on his way home he started to react and by the time he got home he was bright red, the rash had appeared, but  luckily this time his airways stayed clear  but  he went into shock and it was due him failing to take his epipen ,(he had no where to put it was his excuse...well thanks to Suze of cantstopcrafting he has no excuse as she has now  made him a pocket that can be moved from jacket to jacket thanks Susan !!) so it was a trip to hospital until 3.00 a.m but the thank you card isn't for Susan though she deserves one too, have something else for her  -oh no there is more to this tale my son is also off on a trip to Cambodia with the school and needed jabs and the card is for the chemist where he was getting them ,they spotted that he had stared to react again 48 hrs after the first one and quickly sorted him out and refused to let us leave until they were sure that he was o.k and also gave him free drinks and food...now that's what you call  a caring service! But one I'd gladly do without again I must admit!!!!
If you have stayed with me through all that ....onto my card!
I love the look of Jen's kraft cards but I don't like mine they just look bland, so decided to use a cream base (which looks a lot  richer cream in RL) and sahara sand ink from SU with just touches of white and actually liking this colour combo!Had meant to round the edges of the centre panel but stuck it down before I remembered - doh!
The stripy paper is from pink petticoat and the flower and flourish are from SU
Now off to do the online shop that I was meant to be doing before I got side tracked!
Thanks for taking the time to look and read hee he ....it's much appreciated !x
