Get Well Ethyl!

 Hi all,

I hope everyone is having a great holiday weekend!  Between visiting Mom at the nursing home, my aunt at the hospital & having a special dinner for Dad today, I haven't had a lot of card time.  But instead of working on the cards I need for work, I thought it was more important to answer Sheree Taylor's plea for get well cards for a woman who has gone thru more in her life than we can imagine. Please visit Sheree's wonderful blog "Vancouver Island Craft Junkie" for the whole story.  You can't help but be touched.  I hope she is able to get hundreds of cards to help lift Ethyl's spirits & let her know there are people who have never met her, but still send her their prayers for a complete recovery.

This is the get well card I made this afternoon & will send to Sheree for Ethyl. I used the Tea for Two stamp set from Paper Trey along with the die cut that goes with it. I also included a shot of the inside of the card where I have put a tea bag inside the decorated sack.

This is the front of the card. It's hard to see, but does say Get Well Soon on the tea pot. And here is a shot of the inside with the tea bag inserted.  I don't drink a lot of tea, but do like it & especially when I don't feel well.

Hopefully, there will be many, many cards coming her way!

Well, the fireworks are already starting to go off in my neighborhood. Poor Brady will be under the bed once they get really fired up!  He has never liked loud noises.  I suppose all the cats (and dogs) in town will be under the bed tonite & tomorrow! lol

Off to work on birthday cards & a sympathy card for work. Hopefully, my mojo will kick into high gear & I can come up with some quick ideas! I have a whole pot of coffee left from dinner so I may have to hit that to stay awake!

Catch you all later!


  1. What a cheery card you've made. The red is very pretty. So sweet of you to think of someone you don't even know.

  2. Wow!!! This card is incredible Sherri! Ethyl is going to LOVE it! You have put so much work and love into a card for someone you will never meet. I am almost in tears because its so beautiful. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating something so beautiful...
    Great big hugs...

  3. So cute and a fantastic card idea!
