Get Well Soon

TGIF! Hope you've got something fun planned for your weekend. Hubby and I are heading out to a local festival tonight, then watching the US vs. UK play in the World Cup tomorrow AND going out with friends tomorrow night! Whew! I'm tired just thinking about it all!

Today's card is for a BUNCH of challenges:
Embellish Color Challenge with Labels
Stamp With Us--Get Well
52 Card Pickup--Whatever You Say
My Time to Craft--Xtra Special
Get Creative with Ann #91--Where the Butterflies Are
Pollycraft Monday Challenge #47--Ribbon & Bling
Crafty Hos' Challenge--Anything Goes

This card was specially made for my sister, Mary. She will be having hip replacement surgery in a couple of weeks. She's only 51, so needing a hip replacement is really getting her down. I'm hoping this card will cheer her up a little.

Have a great weekend!

Stamps: Thoughts & Prayers (SU)
Paper: Barely Banana, Chocolate Chip, Berry Sorbet, PTI white
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Nestabilities Labels 4, SU & PTI ribbon, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Kaisercraft pearls

Wow, 7 challenges in one card?! You're a rock star! Great card that I'm sure will cheer your sister up. I'm 51 and I'd be struggling if I had to have my hip replaced, too. My prayers are with her for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery. Have a great (busy!) weekend and thanks for visiting my blog!
