Hero Arts "Heartfelt Background" Hello Card

My Mother-in-law has been very poorly in the last month or so, in fact for over three weeks she has had a bed in our local hospital.  Unfortunately, just over a week of her being there, she picked up Covid.  She is 83 and has COPD along with several other ailments so the Covid has taken over our concern rather than the reason she was admitted.

There is a no visiting rule in the hospital.  Other than my Hubby speaking to her once on the telephone that is the only actual contact we have been allowed to have with her since we saw her off in the ambulance, it is so very hard for all of us.

For this reason, I have made her a card saying "Hello" instead of a Mother's Day card.  Somehow a Mother's Day card doesn't seem appropriate.   

I have used a Hero Arts "Heartfelt Background" red rubber stamp with Versafine Clair "Charming Pink" ink.  

For the sentiment I used a Waffle Flower stamp from their "Oversized Hello" stamp set (271309), using Wow! Embossing Ink with Wow! Rich Gold Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I then die cut the sentiment and adhered it onto the card.

Tomorrow we will take a bag of my Mother-in-law's favourite sweeties along to the hospital and leave it at reception for them to take up to the ward.  That's all we can do for her at the moment.


  1. I hope your mother in law makes a full recovery Sam I can't imagine how you are all feeling just now,your bright cheery card in gorgeous colours should make her smile

  2. So sorry to read the sad news. We’ve just been through the same situation. Big hugs. Thinking of you all. xx
