Get Well Card No. 1

Hi friends... just heard yesterday that an ex-colleague of mine, whom I've known for many years, went in for an open-heart operation yesterday.  She is doing well and the pipes were removed today and she managed a smile.  Although we haven't seen each other for a few years, it is times like this that I feel it's nice to be remembered by people you once spent lots of time with in the workplace.  I therefore made this Get Well card for Anita, sticking with the clean and simple look I'm so enjoying doing right now.  Hope you like it.

The sentiment stamp was purchased from a local supplier, Merrypak, but there is no mention of the company that produced it. 

All Anita's current and ex-colleagues have been invited to make a card or tag with a small gift, so I decided to make a card, as I can then write a nice lengthy message therein. I'm sending it with some nice smelly goodies and of course something sweet to make her feel better !

Here's a peek at the inside.  It kinda looks a bit bare, but keep in mind that I'll be filling the white space with a message. 

I made an envelope over the weekend and it will suit this card perfectly.

Right, that's Get Well card No. 1 completed and now I need to start on Get Well card No. 2, which will be for a colleague whom I currently work with.  She has been hospitalised with pneumonia and we wish her all the very best.  I'll showcase her card once it's completed.

Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment.  Happy crafting! hugs Sharon x
