Get Well Card

My mom had knee replacement surgery about a month ago.  She's doing great during her recovery.  She has been a BIG help with our boys so I can work and my husband can go back to school.  She loves handmade cards so I knew this was a perfect time to make a get well soon one.  I rarely have to make these types so it was a little hard.  Luckily, my local demonstrator group had a card sketch challenge to get me started on the design.  I just had to figure out what I wanted to use.

I love the colors and design to this card.  It was a lot of fun making and I even got my oldest son to help.  He was SO proud when he gave it to Grandma and told her he helped make it.  Maybe I have a future crafter on my hands (fingers crossed since I have 2 boys ;)
