Get Well Card

My dad was seriously ill last spring.  My mom and brother told me that I didn't need to hop on a plane, so in addition to lots of prayer, I did what I always do and made a card.

These cards were my inspiration.   I started by looking through my scrap box (which is organized by color, thanks to my awesome daughter) and choosing some that worked well together.  I cut them to the same width and different lengths, cutting a fishtail on one end.  The wheelbarrow is from the Countryside set by Stampin' Up! (retired) and is cut out with Spellbinders Standard Circles Small.

The sentiment is from a really old set that I got before I knew how important it would be to keep my stamps labeled.  <smile>  After stamping it and cutting the cardstock into a rectangle, I cut fishtails into both ends, then I took some grommets from my collection and put them on either end.  Both the wheelbarrow piece and the sentiment were attached to the background with pop dots.  The baker's twine is from Darice.

Dad is doing much better now.  2014 was a rough year for both my parents; we're hoping 2015 proves to be better.
