Feel Better Soon BandAid Card

I struggled with this the entire way. The rubber stamp was dry rotting (lack of use?  defective batch?). It was a Sale-a-Bration set from 2013, and I never got any of the images to stamp very well. When I finished this card, the set went into the trash can.

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?

So, I was procrastinating…I should have been working on my personal Mother’s Day cards. Or finishing up my spring cleaning.

Nope.
