Get Well


Happy Monday.  I hope your week gets off to a great start.  I could give this card to my little man, Marcel.  He's been fighting a stomach bug this weekend.  Hopefully the rest of the house won't get it, but he's had a case of the vomits for a few days. Even when he is sick, he is a happy go lucky guy.  But enough with that!

I have loved Laura's creations this month at CASE Study.  She has an elegant, CAS style that I adore.  So, of course, I had to play along!  I kept it simply with the woodgrain embossing and a few die cuts.  Hope you like it.  And below is Laura's inspiration photo.  You can tell I used her sketch and the polka dots as inspiration!


Also, before I sign off, I wanted to mention this post.  I have a box of goodies going in the mail to Angie tomorrow.  I thought many of you would like to see this as well.

Love that little birdie and I have to say that anything to do with Turning a New Leaf always makes me think of you. :)
