DIY Card Making:  Making a Get Well Card

There is nothing like learning about someone else's health problems to put yours in perspective, right?  This week, I have not been feeling well at all.  I have spent most of the week in bed.  Then today I was notified that a very sweet friend of mine had emergency surgery on Monday, she is recovering well, but it put my “I just don't feel good blues” into perspective.

I got up, grabbed a Dr. Pepper and went into my stamp room.  Low and behold, it was a clean stamp room.  That TOTALLY threw me.  I forgot that I had cleaned it on Sunday.  That was happy accident #1.

Happy accident #2 was that the only card stock I had out was Strawberry Slush and Whisper White.  I instantly knew my color palette.

Happy accident #3:  I stand when stamp.  I can't sit and stamp, it just doesn't work for me.  (I can almost see some of you nodding your head as you read that, my fellow stand-when-stamping-friends.)  But I knew it just wasn't going to happen.  So I could only use things I could reach from my chair.  (now if you can imagine, my stamp room has kitchen cabinets in it, and I was using a regular height chair – so I couldn't reach much)

This is why I stand and stamp – even though most everything is within reach – as soon as I sit down, I will need something on the other side of the room.

While sitting today, I was forced to only use things within my reach.

I was really afraid of how this card might look when I was done.  It was meant to be a pick me up, but would it be so bad that it would make my friend feel worse?  But I really like how it turned out.  It has the clean and simple look that I was going for, and I don't think it looks tragic.
