Vintage - again

Hi there! Only a quick post here today!
I have been on the phone most of the evening - I had to ring the emergency doctor as I took one of my morning tablets instead of an evening one so needed some advice - it took three people who passed me on in turn to another - it seems I will be OK but shouldn't take any of my other tablets! What a numpty I am!!!

This afternoon I enjoyed making a card - it calmed me down after hearing that my dear friend Mona has passed away.

So the card I made is in two colours only - I really wasn't in a colourful mood!
I used TH stencil and a stamp set also by Tim Holtz. The warm wishes stamp is by Stampendous I think!
I will also remind you that the theme at Try It On Tuesday is Vintage! 

 Mona wasn't well when we played Scrabble on Friday evening - her leg was troubling her. She was in so much pain that an ambulance was called and I must say she didn't look well at all! She was feeling well enough to come home on Saturday, but when she couldn't bear to stand on her leg getting in the car she was kept in!
Events took a turn for the worse and it was family only visits and we feared the worse! I was told that she passed at 1-30 this morning! We shall miss her so much!
Mona just before her 97th birthday

Thanks for looking! Chris

oh how very sad! you've mentioned Mona several times and she always seemed so bright and to defy her age.
I hope you keep taking the right tablets in future!

Sorry to hear about Mona, it's always sad to lose a loved one. Lovely vintage card, look after yourself. I try to be careful with my tablets, I have such a lot to take each day, but mistakes do sometimes happen. Hugs, Valerie
