Just Magnolia, Penny Black & Sketch Saturday

I followed the sketch at Just Magnolia just tweaking it a little by placing the heart in the background so I hope it still counts since I followed the sketch. Anyway, I made this for my Hubby who is in a Sub-Acute Rehab center. I hope it cheers him up and brightens up his drab room. I miss him terribly, on Monday it will be two weeks that he has not been home, the first week was in the hospital and now he is at the re-hab center. He receives about 3 hours of both occupational & physical therapy 6 out of 7 days a week and will probably be there 2-3 more weeks. He is exhausted after each session to say the least. I can not visit him as often as I did when he was in the hospital because it is so far away and with work and the boys it makes it kind of hard and also takes it's toll on me. He was so cute when he commented that it was like we were dating again since we were on the phone so much.

a close up:

THis is another one I will give to him tomorrow and for this one, I followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday and by using a Penny Black Stamp and a punch it also allows me to enter this in the Penny Black challenge.
