A Heart On The Mend

Hi, guys! Hope you are having a great day!  Today I am sharing a card I made for a special friend.  She is one-of-a-kind and so supportive of my crafting and was the first one to actually pay me to make her a card.  I have the first dollar she gave me framed to this day.   Well, my friend suffered a heart attack on the way to work a few weeks ago.  It was so scary to hear and it is WONDERFUL to hear she is on the mend now.  After thinking about it for a bit, this is the card I came up with for her.  I decided to stamp on an Avery mailing label to make the Band-Aid look realistic and was able to drape it across the heart that way.

Stamps: Vap! Scraps
Paper: G Studio Note Card, Ink Pad NYC Earth Tone, Gingham Creative Imaginations
Ink: Memento Black
Misc.: Copic Marker, Heart and Scallop Heart Spellbinders Dies, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Avery Shipping Label

I am sending this wish out to my friend for a speedy recovery! I miss you each day.

This unsettling experience has reminded me, yet again, that each day is a gift and not to be taken for granted for a minute.

Hoping you have a great day, and each moment is enjoyed to the fullest!
