Get Well Wishes

Yesterday was a day of mulling around, browsing the internet for swimming pool parts, new bedroom linens and of course checking in on card challenge blogs and the Silhouette Online Store. Our vehicle was in the shop for the day so going somewhere wasn't an option. So what's a gal to do with some extra time on her hands?  You guessed a card...a Get Well card that I've been wanting to create for my friends mom.

Now you may be wondering why I have so much spare time on my hands to do all of these "unproductive" tasks.  Well, we are renovating our master bedroom.  Our contractor was sick, however the electrician did come and I find it very hard to get a whole bunch of things done with someone running around my house.  I always feel like they must think I'm checking up on them, so I usually try to make myself busy in one room.  Crazy, I know!!!  It's my house after all!  However, I was happy to sit in our office to start putting together this card. 

I'm sure you'll recall the card I made for my friends baptism that I posted last week...if you want to catch up you can see that post here!  Well, both she and her husband were baptized that day...but not without incident.  My friends mom landed up in the emergency room just a few hours before the baptism was to take place with severe back pain.  She did manage to make the church service, however needed to be taken back to the ER just after lunch.  She was admitted at that time.  I know that she is finding the days in the hospital extremely long and thought maybe I could boost her spirits with a bright, cheery card.  So I got the Silhouette humming and did a ton of printing and cutting...

This is the cheery little well wish I came up with...

All of the die cuts used in this card were colored, printed and cut on my Silhouette Cameo.  I find the more I play with this new toy, the more I'm falling in love with it!  The background papers were just scraps laying around the scrap room.  I've raised the sentiment and bird with some pop up dots to give it some dimension and extra added interest.  The flowers have had buttons added to their centres and Stickles to their brightly blooming petals.  The raindrops, puddle, umbrella and cloud have had Glossy Accents applied to them to give them a "wet" appearance.  It's a fairly simple card...but cute I thought non the less!

I'm hoping to find the time to pop by the hospital today to see my friends mom!  Hoping this card will brighten her day and let her know that she is being thought of!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today...hope I could brighten your day with a little inspiration!  Don't forget to leave me a comment to brighten my day as well!  See you again soon!
