Get Well Soon, Jen!!

You don’t know how good your mates at work are until they aren’t there, do you!  My friend, Jenny is at home waiting to hear about an operation she needs to have.  So I made her a card…..but forgot to take it when we went to see her on Monday!! *sigh*Get Well Soon

Jen is my crafty partner and together we make and sell cards at our office.  In her (and mine) absence last week our craft-curious friend Louisa had sweetly sent a ‘get well soon card’ round the office for people to sign to send to Jen.  Of course, unbeknown to Lou the card she selected was one Jen herself had made.  So it amused Jen that we actually sent her her own ‘Get Well Soon’ card!

Anyways,  I made this card as a voucher holder.  Louisa made a collection and to stop Jen going stir crazy we sent her a voucher for some crafty stuff!

I’ve used the Hopeful Thoughts stamp set, colouring it in with my Stampin’ Write markers.  The sentiment is from the same set.  I’ve embossed Early Espresso using Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and tied ribbon down the side.  I’ve actually coloured Whisper White ribbon with my marker so it’s a perfect match for the blue.

So Jen….this is what you should have got Monday!  Hope you like it! AND GET WELL SOON!  Work is just dull without your mates around you. Sad smile

I’m entering this card in the following  challenges:
