Non Traditional Get Well

Happy Friday!

The week went by slowly for me, it seems. Go figure, as it was a short week, with Canada Day for us at the beginning of the week, and then America's Independence Day. Hot and humid. Boy, summer took its sweet time getting here, and it is now in full swing. Phew!

So, Friday means Unity time. Not hammer time. Unity time. Of course, if you feel like 'busting a move', by all means, go ahead! :)

I broke out of my newer stamps for my card this week. I wanted to do a layout, but I also needed a Get Well card for my boss. So, two birds, one stone, so to speak. ;)

My boss is a real great gal. She is the director of a very large camp for Scouts Canada, and from my standpoint, does not have it easy. We'll just say that I would not want her job. Anyways, she is 'under the weather' right now. She is awaiting surgery to repair her retina, as it 'came out' off her eyeball. I don't have the proper medical terms, as I am still grasping the fact that THAT can actually happen! Seriously! And it was not ONE eye, it was BOTH! Yowza!

Anyways, as Alison is a trooper, and stays positive, no matter what the circumstance, it seems, I felt this stamp was appropriate. It reminds me so much of her. Except for the braids. Alison has short curly hair. She is such an outdoorsy person. She's amazing!

Anyhow. Here is my card for Unity's Friends with Flair.


I used Simple Stories 'Take a Hike' papers (fitting!), Momento ink, and my watercolor pencils. I ned to work on my fussy cutting---I have absolutely little patience for this! lol

So, it's a non-traditional get Well card. I hope it brings a smile to her face. I hope she gets better soon.

So, that's it for me.

Have a great weekend.

Be safe. Get crafty.

Laura, this is such a sweet get well card. What better way to cheer a person up with a card on what they love. I'm sure your boss will really appreciate it. I'm guessing she has retina detachment, something I'm at risk of getting too. I hope all goes well for her. Have a lovely weekend!

Love your card. I had a friend with a detached retina and she freaked out so a soothing, sweet card like this is just the medicine she need.

Laura, this is the perfect get well card for a camp director -- and the perfect stamped image. You couldn't have chosen better! She has a detached retina in both eyes! Did she have a hard blow to the head! That seems so strange, poor thing! I will keep her in my prayers, for sure!

I sure hope your friend feels better soon! It's great that she has a positive attitude, and better that she has a friend who is thinking of her with a cute card!
