Hello! How has everyone been? I'm back with a card I created last week for my friend (and landlord). I include her rent check in a handmade card every month. Our "secret" is that I never sign it so she can give the card to someone else.
For the front, I used patterned paper, cardstock and Blue Lagoon ink from Gina K Designs. The stamp set I used is called Banner Blessings from Stampin Up! For the inside, I used a sentiment and flower from Theresa Momber's Birds & Blossoms 2 at Gina K Designs.
This was a very quick, easy card to create. If you have these sets, or something like them, give it a try whenever you don't have the time to create a more complicated card. You know me, CAS Gal!
Update: My ankle surgery went very well. I was in surgery about a half hour and woke up with absolutely NO pain! The doctor tried something new -- Exparel, an injection of a local analgesic that numbs the tissue around the surgical site for THREE DAYS! WooHoo! I was happy! It was just like a nerve block but it lasted a whole lot longer. By the time it wore off, I had very little pain because enough time had passed to begin the healing. Now I have 6 weeks ahead of total rest. Hmmmm...
A big shout-out to my sister, Cecilia, for being so absolutely WONDERFUL! She took care of EVERYTHING, from vacuuming to grocery shopping to preparing meals. My freezer is now full of enough food to last me a month. She even painted my nails and sewed the holes in my favorite blanket! Can't beat that. I've got to thank her husband, Rich, for lending her to me for a few days. I love her so much, not just for what she does but who she is. I think she deserves an extra-special card as soon as I can stand long enough to create it!
Well, you'all have a good week! Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate your comments and visits very much, and I hope to see you again next time!
