Feel Better!


My dad had surgery this past Friday on his hand. He had a melanoma under his right pointer finger that was removed last year, and this was something of a follow-up surgery. He is doing pretty well, but prayers for quick healing would certainly be appreciated!

I sent this card to him along with a package of Jordan Almonds. Dad loves Jordan Almonds! Unfortunately, the nausea from the pain medicine has made it difficult for him to enjoy them yet! I ran the Dusty Durango cardstock and a sheet from my Cosmo Cricket Material Girl paper pad through the Big Shot using the Top Note die. I tied a length of simple brown twill around the focal image, and layered two loops of ribbon for a fun bow. I added a white PTI button and some Ivory Twine. The "feel better" sentiment is from Sweet Affections, the Unity Store Kit from December. It was stamped in Chocolate Chip ink.

Be SURE to check back here tomorrow for a special TUTORIAL for National Craft Month! :)
