Mojo Monday 207 and my Card-making Frenzy

I was glad to see that Mojo Monday was back with a new post this week. I seem to be in a card-making frenzy, making multiples of cards to fill the sudden need for get well, birthdays, new baby, and anniversaries. I started with this get well card because I got my first virus of the "fall" and new it was only the beginning. I'm spending more time making cards than posting them.

Three different paisley retired papers from Close To My Heart and the Cuttlebug paisley embossing folder all seemed to go together for this card. The stamp sets were Words to Live By ("Relax"), which is retired, and Best Wishes for the Get Well Soon sentiment. I had quite a few sheets of the cheery Precious Paisleys patterned paper. It was just right for a card to cheer up someone from church who's fighting illness. I know that making several of these cheered me up! Paper crafting has been my best medicine for the past seven years!

I've also been addicted to the Wishes card confidence book this week. It has so many card patterns with cutting directions and templates that I don't have to think very hard to figure out sizes--a definite plus when I'm sick.

By pulling out several scraps left from a CTMH Hooligans paper pack and the "Done Right" pattern on page 119 this next card came together quickly as one that needs to be fairly flat to mail a long distance. I only pop-dotted the circles. The girl and sentiment are from the set called "Be Yourself." The inside reads: BE YOURSELF. . .everyone else is taken.
