Get Well Soon!

Hi Everyone!

Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!  The weather here was great after all that rain.  Sorry it's been a while since I posted.  We went away to the beach for the holiday.  My son, who loves crafting as much as I do, packed the baby Cricut, Cuttlebug and lots of goodies, but we forgot the Gypsy!  No carts to play with.  So we HAD to run to Joanns and AC Moore to pick up a few - LOL!

Here is a card a I made for my Mom.  She hurt her hand gardening and can't play Bingo for a while.  I sure hope this cheers her up!  She loves to garden and play Bingo.  

This card is 6 x 6 on a pink card base using some great card stock I got at Costco  years ago.  It's so sad that they don't carry it any more.  It was really great.  The hearts are cut using Hoot "N" Holler.  They say "love you" and "xo" in the middle, but this is difficult to see in the photo.  This card really does look better IRL.  I used the Tim Holtz Sizzix Bingo embossing folder in the Cuttlebug - worked fine without any special plates.  Turquoise blue is her favorite color.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Broken China to ink up the card and twine from the Twinery.  The white border is cut from Fiskars - treading water border punch.  I also used Stickles on the little star.  The picture is not the greatest.  I really need to set up a spot where I can take a good photo.  This card just blends with the background and makes it difficult to see. . . 

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
