Matthew's Get Well card



Hello! I made this card for my son who had to have emergency surgery yesterday. He had his appendix removed, everything went well and he's home and doing good (i'm so thankful). He's 21 but all you mothers know how it is. He will always be my baby. It's was a long weekend without alot of sleep for me. Today things seems to be a little more normal. I made him a get well card and used PTI's make it monday challenge: colored kissing. I also used the deconstucted sketch  from Jen Shults. Here it is
I used PTI cardstock and patterned paper from my mind's eye and amuse. I used the Healing Touch Sentiments stamp set and broke up the setiment "get well soon" so I could make it fit in my star. I used a piece of scotch tape for this.  For my colored kissing technique, I used star prints and a border from love songs. It was a really fun technique, but not as easy as Heather made it look. when I tried to stamp the border on the star stamp, it kept sliding and I would have to start all over..lol! The stars are diecut with a quickutz set of dies that I got from the chantily Va scrapbooking expo. The star border is from joy carfts. I wrapped two pieces of twine, one above and one below the border. You can't really use pretty ribbon on a man's card. Although I would love to use ribbon on every card. I hope to find time to try this technique again this week. Thanks for visiting!

  2. Hi Missy! You really did a great job with the Make it Monday Challenge, and incorporating it into your other challenge. I had to do the same with mine (make it fit more than one challenge), but it was a fun new technique to learn. I just adore PTI. You really did a cute job with yours. I hope you will stop by to take a peek at mine, and if you want - I'd LOVE to have you become a follower of my blog. I'd also like permission to follow your blog (I always like to ask first). Hope you're having a great week, and hope to see you soon.
    Blessings,
