My Very First Post to Share

Well, here I am, my very first post on my blog. This is new for me and a dream come true. (I really need to dream bigger dreams don't I, lol) This is a Get Well Card I made for my Mother last night who lives in Connecticut. I sent it to her this morning. She has a MRSA staph infection in her thumb and pneumonia. She was in the hospital for 5 days and is now home. Thank goodness she responded to the IV antibiotics! She was really sick. I love her so much and was so worried about her. She said she started feeling a little better today.

Anyway, this was stamped with Inkadinkado Garden Delight clear stamps. I also used my cuttlebug for the scalloped circle behind "Get Well Soon" which, by the way, was cut on my Cricut "Beyond Birthdays". I used Versa Magic Ink and Stickles on the stamped designs. I just love Stickles and use them on almost all my cards. The scalloped and embossed edging was a Fiskars stamp I got in my stocking for Christmas. I also tied a shear white ribbon on the card.

Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to stop by and check out my card. I hope you like it and will take the time to leave me a comment. It sure would be appreciated! I am presently working on my Valentine's cards, so check back soon for another addition to my blog.
