Get Well

Hello, my friends!

We're on the last leg of our vacation.. I bet you didn't even know we were gone! We'll be back later this weekend, and I will be back to posting live! :)

I wanted to share a Get Well card with you today, one I made for a dear friend of mine who is recovering from successful breast cancer surgery. Say a little prayer of thanks along with me, won't you?

I used Wplus9's A Pocketful set to create this card.

The little cluster of flowers is sized perfectly for the little pocket, so I simply stamped it twice for the larger pocket. I stamped the flowers again on to scrap cardstock so I could cut out a few and pop them up on my card. I added the Get Well sentiment to the label image. After I had the design together, I felt like it was missing something, so I stamped just a portion of the fancy stitched image along the left hand side.

And since I was making this card with a recipient in mind, I even finished the inside :)

The inside sentiment helps to tie the whole pocket theme together, and helped to keep the front a little less busy. I used a combination of words to build my phrase - I love it when I have this flexibility!

I'm so glad that you stopped by today. I can't wait to tell you all about our trip - have a great one! See you soon!
