Some Get Well Humor

"A merry heart doeth good like a medicine." Proverbs 17:22
 
 
Here's a card I made for someone in the hospital this weekend. I used a Clear Dollar Stamps digi set that had so many cute sentiments. It's called "Happy Healing."  I started with this fun sketch from Sketch Saturday, Week 240.
 
 
 
 
I cut a heart freehand from one of the glittery pineapples on the paper that had lots of fruit. I matted it on a red cardstock, matted that on pink, then another red, cutting around each freehand again.
 
 
I signed the card saying that I'm sending her hugs, smiles, and prayers that she'll soon be better. I'm a firm believer that it takes all three!
 
I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
Alphabet challenge - X - "X marks the spot" Dots (heart) and Stripes
Dream Valley #48 - Anything Goes
Eureka Stamps #21 -make it Sparkle (designer papers are from a glitter stack + added sparkles)
