Recover Rapidly

Sorry I didn't get a post up yesterday.  My son was home sick and I focused on him instead of my blog.  I'm sure you understand.  (On a positive note I finally found out why/how Zach & Cody were in school on a boat without their mom.  Oh the things you learn while making soup when your son is watching re-runs in the same room.)  This morning while he was eating breakfast I made him a card.

It's not exactly "age appropriate", but I don't think he will mind.  He's been clingy and wanting hugs and comfort.  Something about being sick makes all of us want our mommies to take care of us and make us feel better.

I tried stamping the band-aid from Patterned Occasions onto Pink cardstock first, but it just didn't look right.  The image stamped much better on Whisper White cardstock.  I cut out the hearts from my failed "pink" attempt and popped one of them up on dimensionals on the front of the card, and the other one I glued onto the inside of the card.

With cold and flu season upon us I think I should probably make a couple more of these cards to have on hand.  It always helps to know somebody else cares about what we are going through.

Sketch inspiration found at Try Stampin' On Tuesday. My card is more square than rectangle, but I think it still works.

Creative Blessings,
Heather North
