A Get Well Card for an AFIS Board member

My thought for today is:

The greatest revolution of our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives. William James

Each day I pray for my child to gain an understanding of this fact...


Hellooooooo! I know
I have been away from blogging for a while. I have had some more issues with the internet. Not exactly like before, but I could not update my blog. I'm even having problems as I try make this entry, but I'm going to keep it simple and hopefully get it done.

This is a Get Well card I created based off of a design I saw on the internet. I wish I could show you the card, but I am not organized enough to label where the card came from, except that it said "by Trudy". : ( Sorry. Trudy if you should ever make you way to my blog I am not claiming this as my original design, it was totally inspired by your card!

This is what I changed. Her card was a rainbow of color (very pretty), mine all shades of blue, her sentiment was printed on a white oval matted with red. It was also a Get Well card. and she had white grosgraine ribbon tied in a knot -running up the left side side. I thought I would leave off the ribbon, as this card was intended for a male. I used a different shape for my sentiment, also matted. She used 6 strips of border, I used eight. Even though I did add the rhinestones. I thought I could get away with that. : ) I liked this design so much I replicated it in about 5 colors, all monotone that can again be completed for various occasions. I used one done in all browns for a graduation card for a basketball star. : ) I'll show you soon.

Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your visit!
