Get Well Soon Card for Mom

Hello everyone!  I am so glad that tomorrow is Friday!!!  Woo hoo!  I am also relieved because my mom went in for surgery today and it went very well!  Her surgery took place about 45 minutes away, so my sister, niece and I are going to drive up there tomorrow to visit her in the hospital.  She had to have surgery on her knee (I believe it was a complete knee replacement)...  Luckily my dad was able to be there for her (check her in, wait with her, see her when the surgery was done)...  I whipped up this little beauty to give to her, and I had to incorporate crutches since that is how she will be getting around for a while! 

Celebrate the Occasion- any occasion (must be circle shaped)
Paper Playtime- anything goes



Mini Monograms- card base cut at 5.47"
Walk in My Garden- flowers cut at 1.47", 1", 0.76" (I just layered them on top of each other)
George and Basic Shapes- plaid circle cut at 4.06", green circle cut at 3.47"
Everyday Paper Dolls- crutches cut at 5.59"
My Pink Stamper Stamps- Spectacular Sayings
Button brads
White gel pen

There it is!  I kept this one nice and simple...  I wanted it to have a cheerful feel...  My niece also wanted to make a card for "gagga".  She came up with all of the colors, cuts, sizes, and the sentiment inside.  She even used the Cuttlebug all by herself (well, kind of by herself)!  We wanted to see what this little Kindergartener would come up with, and the result is so cute!  Here is a picture of what she created....  :)



Enjoy!  :)

This card will put a smile on her face, for sure! I think the hardest part about her surgery will be using the crutches for a while... I hope everything goes well from here
