Get Well soon!



I didn't mean to take a break from blogging after I finished my 100 cards in 100 days challenge but it turned out that way.  I have been very hard at work (and play) : ) and my "photo studio" has been disassembled so even though I have been making a few cards I have been unable to take pictures of them.

I have also had some very unhappy events happening in the lives of some very close people in my life.  My Dad was rushed to the hospital last week with a serious heart problem.  He is home now resting well after having a pacemaker inserted.  That was too scarey! : (  He is 85 years old and I am tremendously grateful we still have him with us.

Two days ago a friend text me to let me know her husband had been rushed to the hospital after having a serious accident in his garage involving his hand and a grinder! He is also home resting after a dreadful ordeal! : (  I made him a similar card to this one.  I surely hope this is the last time I will ever! need to use this ambulance from Papertrey Ink's darling stamp/die set. 

My card design was CASED from one of the design team members for Papertrey Ink but I'm sad that I can't remember which member - so sorry.  They used PTI city stamps but I don't own them so I substituted some sweet houses from a retired Stampin Up set.

The Special Delivery stamp set is really fun and versatile!! Here are the links to where you can buy these products:

That is it for today.  I am so glad to be back and hope to get around to some challenges and visiting more blog friends soon.
