I hope you have all enjoyed, or are still enjoying, your Easter break.
John and I had a few things planned, including a trip to Sydney to visit
the Royal Easter Show. However, we have had to postpone that visit until
next year, because on Friday morning he was rushed to hospital with chest
pains. For several years he has had to take multiple medications for heart
problems, but has not had an actual crisis recently. Things are not as
bad as was first suspected, so he came home yesterday afternoon, albeit
very tired and feeling 'washed out'. He has slept for long periods, during
which I have 'watched him like a hawk'. I know I shouldn't be scared,
but I guess my reaction is a fairly normal one.
Onto happier things...last week yet another of my fellow-guides at the Fort
celebrated his birthday. He turned 78, and is also named John.
Before he retired, he used to be a motor mechanic, so the natural choice for
his card was one with cars on it. He is also a very neat and ordered man,
so my card for him reflects that attribute.
This close up gives slightly better detail of the embossed panel, and one
of my seemingly limitless supply of peel-off stickers.
I decorated both panels of the interior of the card. I LOVE that car
die-cut...it is one of a pair. The other car is at the end of this post.

We are just having a vegetable omelette for dinner, as we had a late lunch, so I had better say "goodnight" and go and look after my patient. I am so behind with my commenting, but I will try to catch up with your wonderful blogs later tonight.
