Happy Healing

Hi all - just back from a visit with my parents.  Mom had foot surgery and is recovering nicely.  I helped her for three days with cleaning, cooking and laundry while she watched HGTV - we love that channel, especially House Hunters and Property Brothers!

Here's the card I made for her:

Happy feet

Jayne had done a Scramble over at the Hero Arts Flickr group a few weeks ago using polaroids and angles in the challenge. I had so much fun with them, I just had to use them again for this card.  I used a Hero Arts card base stamped in the corners with a flower from a Hero Arts/Sizzix set called Floral and Soft Pool ink.  The band-aid and foot stamp are from Crackerbox Palace, just purchased a couple weeks ago at a stamp expo.  Inside it says "Hope you're back on your feet soon".  I watercolored the band-aid and feet using a friend's pencils - not even sure which brand.  The little green polaroid frame came in a package of 15 by Studio Calico - just darling - love these! 

Hope you're having a lovely day and had time for some crafting!  I haven't had any time this past week so hope to get some projects started soon!!

Oh this is just so adorable and fun, Linda! I remember those cute stamps from when you bought them and I love what you've done with them! Your colouring is wonderful and I love your design! The subtle floral corners look so pretty!

I'm so glad to hear that your mom is recovering well and I'm sure she really appreciated all your help:) I love House Hunters too and now I must look out for Property Brothers too!
