Get Well Card for a Friend

I made this card the other evening for a friend of mine who was feeling poorly. I thought this cute Greeting Farm stamp (Hope and Grace Snuggle) - I got from The Stamp Spot would fit the bill perfectly for a get well card - everyone needs a hug, even at my age! I used some Basic Grey DP and my Fiskars border punch to create a background - and I used the double sided tape and glitter trick again to give the border heaps of sparkle to help brighten up the sickie's day!

I've heard my friend loved the card and now I have a coffee date to look forward to soon - I rarely say no to a coffee date, especially when we are including dessert - LOL. I know this is bad but the diet's already out the window - hubby returned home from Brussels with a HUGE box of Belgian Chocolates - YUM!!!!

Have just heard from Marcia she has some new Greeting Farm stamps on their way to The Stamp Spot - so don't forget to check in to see if they've arrived!

Hope you are all fighting fit and ready to craft!

One more stop on my limited blog surfing during my lunch hour...I can't wait another moment to see what you've been up to! And we're off to an excellent start! How cute this is! I'm a sucker for all things TGF. I have got to try that sticky glittery border thing you're doing (that's the technical description...ha!).

Save some chocs for me!

Now, on to see more...
