PSC68 - CAS Get Well Card

We've been experiencing a blizzard since last night. Since we live in the country, surrounded by pastures, the wind has blown some of our snow into five foot drifts. The power has been off for a while, so I'm keeping this post short in case it goes off again. The best part about blizzards is that I get to stay inside and watch large numbers of different birds huddling in my wisteria and feeding at our patio bird feeders.

The worst aspect of this huge snowstorm is that people will still become ill and need to go to the hospital when the roads are sometimes impassable. This morning I awoke praying for the ambulance drivers and others who are gravely ill. One of our daughters is a nurse at a dialysis facility. People go there all day and all night to get life-saving dialysis, blizzard or not. So "get well" thoughts and prayers have really been on my mind today. This card perfectly fits my thoughts today.

Our challenge at The Perfect Sentiment Challenge 68:


Our sponsor is Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps, who is providing a generous $10 voucher for one lucky winner.

The stamp I used is Stitchy Bear's "Under the Weather." I embossed most of the card front with raindrops, colored the printed image with Copics and die cut it off center with a Spellbinder's Nestabilities label, slicing off the left side. I stippled a little Indian Corn Blue ink on the image before pop dotting it on the card. I typed my sentiment in Word and attached it on the bottom with the gingham ribbon between the sentiment and the image. All very simple.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
365 Cards - Hats
Addicted to CAS #7 - Masculine
All Sorts #195 - Animals
Alphabet Challenge - A for Anything with Wings (duck)
Craft-room challenge - something for a man
