sending hugs

quick post! i sort of disappeared for a bit...but, in all honesty, i was right here! ...and i was scrapping!!
yep, my bff's youngest daughter turned 1 recently, so i made a scrapbook of her first year! i literally used every spare minute i had to make sure i had it done in time for our family's vacation together! and guess what, in my rush, i completely forgot to take any pictures of it!! oh well! i'm glad it's done! :) it was fun, but whew...a lot of work! :)

so onto my card for the latest lawnscaping challenge! we literally just got back last night from vacation, and despite a few outbursts from tropical storm beryl, i was able to whip up this card for the challenge! i couldn't NOT participate! 

i dry embossed the clouds, and then heat embossed the sentiment. the pictures are terrible because i have no light! i'm sorry!! 

i wanted this card to be cheery, but also clean and simple. i love this 'on the mend' set, and i have more plans for it, a) when i learn to color (ha!) and b) when i have more time!

my grandpa has a cold he can't shake, and i wanted to make sure it also had a hint of masculinity - hence the argyle! :) lol hey, i can try.
so hopefully it makes him smile and kicks those germs right out of his body! :)

so that's it! 


  1. aww this is adorable...I love the cloud embossed background...

  2. i think you grandpa will be sure to get a chuckle out of this card. The argyles are perfect on a masculine card. Hope his cold goes away soon. Love the Lawnfawn stamps.

  3. so cute! i have a non-smiling box of tissues that looks a lot like this lol :)

  4. Awww! I think ur grandpa will love it! Stuff is going around down here. The embossed clouds are a nice touch! Is that the embossing plate u were talking about?


thank you SO much for taking the time to comment! just like that, you made my day! :D
