Flip Flop Color Wheel Card

For the last two weeks, I have been struggling with the billing department of my dentist (note: As of Friday, the struggle appears to have been resolved in my favor. I am a skeptic, so, time will tell!). One day last week, one of the phone calls sent me over the edge…I needed RETAIL THERAPY on a budget! I ended up at Newton’s Nook…and I am am thrilled with the products I selected, the shipping cost, and the shipping time

I knew what I wanted to do with the flip flops before I even got the package open.

I used my handmade wreath building tool (inspired by GinaK Designs Wreath Builder Templates ) to position the flip flops perfectly.

Tulip Feel Better Card

This Spring Garden stamp set goes WAY back, almost to my stamping beginning (fall of 2002). The copyright date on the set is 2003, so it might be from the first or second stamp camp I attended. I will not get rid of it until I wear it out!

Today, it turned into a feel better soon card, which I find a little more versatile than the traditional get well soon.

Do you send get well cards?
