Healing wishes

My poor sister has been suffering for years with a cough that comes and goes on it's intensity, but always seems to be there, she has gone to a few different doctors trying to get answers and I just feel so bad for her, I know just having a normal cold with cough can be irritating but having it for a long period of time has got to be on her last nerve.  So I made this card for her so every time she looks at it she can be reminded that I am praying for her to get better soon and that I am thinking of her.

No I did not color this flower it is a diecut from K&co.  but I thought it was so pretty and would be good to cheer her up with all the snow Michigan has. I think the card measures 5 x 6 1/2, so this is a big flower.

K&co. -- Flora and Fauna diecuts and vellum package
Spellbinders -- A2 matting basics and Noble Rectangles dies
DCWV -- Bright Matt stacks
Words to the Rescue -- Get well stamp set

I see that the brads look more blue in this picture but in real life they almost matched the cardstock perfectly.

We are warming up here, suppose to hit 55 today !!! YAH!!!  My hubby saw a hot dog commercial yesterday and he said oh doesn't that look good, so guess what we are grilling out today...LOL!

I hope you enjoy a wonderful weekend and that it involves some time to create!

Thanks for stopping by,

Gorgeous flower and beautifully framed! I have that sentiment set, too, and love it. I like how you placed the sentiment across the panel. Best wishes to your sister. It would be nice to figure out why she has her cough and just fix it.

Beautiful card Connie. My son had a dreadful cough for months and it turned out to be a tumour in his chest that was obstructing his airway. Thank God after treatment he is now fine. Hope your sister finds out the reason for her cough soon.
