I'm trying to get back in the swing of things here and I find myself rushing to get some cards done. So I've turned to some of the best inspiration around - the Papertrey Ink designers and members of the forum. The Blog Hop is always full of eye candy and I'm pretty sure the participants don't mind being CASED. The one I am going to share with you today is based on this lovely creation by Karin - PeppermintPatty. I think she does wonderful work and I guess others agree by the look of the badges on her page.
I needed a masculine Get Well for our interim Pastor. He has been such a rock for me this past year. We met him before he even started with the congregation in my Mom's hospital room after her first fall and hip replacement. I think he was taking notes on the falls and breaks in our family, slipped on the ice and broke his tibia in two places and also his ankle in two places. Pastor, you win! It's certainly not funny, but we have this ongoing thing about laughter and healing. I hope he didn't injure his funny bone.
I used the Library Cards from PTI with sentiments from Faux Ribbon and wanted to add a vintage graphic, something like old medicine bottles, crutches or bandages. In my search I found a fantastic source - The Graphics Fairy. She has such a fantastic collection of vintage images.(You may see more if I ever get around to making some Valentines.) This particular image is from a Victorian child's alphabet book. It's the letter "I " with a poem about a boy sliding and falling on the ice. (I reprinted the poem on the inside of the card). Not quite as colorful as Karin's, but definitely customized to the occasion.
I hope to be back soon with more of my mojo working and creating more original work.
Thanks for stopping by.
