Get well…

One of our very good friends has recently had major heart surgery to repair one of his valves.  Thankfully, he is doing well, spent only a brief time in ICU and has now been discharged home to recuperate.  The wonders of modern medicine!

I saw a band aid tutorial some time ago on Andrea’s blog, and knew the plaster would be just perfect for the card I wanted to make him.  


He loved the card but, judging by the scar that now runs the length of his chest, I think he’s going to need a bigger plaster!  🙂

Stampin Up supplies used:

Cardstock: bashful blue, whisper white, blush blossom (retired); Inks: pink pirouette, night of navy, real red, bashful blue; Stamp sets: hopeful thoughts, in stitches; Punches: heart to heart; Accessories: paper piercer and mat pack, stampin dimensionals, white gel pen.

Sympathy card …


This was a difficult card for me to have to make.  I hope it brings comfort to the family.  It’s times like this when a handmade card can reach out and let someone know you are thinking about them.

I took inspiration from Michelle’s card here, changed the colours and the sentiment, and double stamped the tree image. 

Stampin Up supplies used:

Cardstock: very vanilla, crumb cake, pink pirouette; Inks: pink pirouette, pretty in pink, chocolate chip; Stamp sets: hopeful thoughts; Punches: itty bitty shapes flower punch; Accessories: chocolate chip taffeta ribbon, basic pearls, glue dots.
