Four in a Row...

Four in a row.... Days off, that is! I'm home sick today, so I guess I can't really count today, but I am just stubborn enough to do so anyway! Don't have to go back until Tuesday! For anyone working in education, the second semester is a killer. Not too many holidays, and very seldom any snow days. Makes for a long five months!
Hope you are all enjoying long weekends as well!

Yesterday, I made a quick card for a lady we know in Branson that has had surgery. She is an absolute sweetie, and I wanted something that had a bit of a 'blingy' feel for her. What should have been a very quick and easy surgery had her in the hospital for about a week. She's home now, and hopefully, will bounce back quickly. If you get a chance, send up a prayer or two for our Jean!
Here's what I made for her:

Card front

Cream background, blue layer (trimmed up with my cutter John got me for Christmas last

year - the little lighted one with the interchangeable blades! White layer was run through my Cuttlebug. Stamp is by: The Angel Company

The paper is by Cloud 9 Designs and is just yummy! I get it at O'Dear's! I used my Martha Stewart Scalloped Border Punch on both ends of the paper.

Card Inside - stamp is by: My Sentiments Exactly

Envelope - Stamp is by Stampendous.

I stamped and colored sentiment, and punched a piece of the cardstock with the Martha Stewart Scallop Border Punch.

I hope that you like it! I hope to get out into my workspace for a while tomorrow! Will try to post what I do. I think I'm going to ask for some Spellbinders (Nestabilities?) for my birthday! What fun!

Take care everyone! Have a nice weekend.
