So Thankful

it’s now been one month since my new hip and for the first time since surgery, i got out today! even if it was only to my follow up doctor’s appointment. :)

i wanted to thank the home visiting nurse who followed up with my unexpected severe reaction to adhesive so i created this card for her, mostly in blues just like her uniform.

i painted the adorable mouse and envelope with twinkling H2Os, both from the mama elephant page huggers stamp set, die cut with the coordinating dies, and popped the die cut box on foam tape; both it and the sentiment were die cut from blue corrugated paper. finally, i die cut the scallop frame and attached it to a white base.

i’m playing along with these challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge – RED WHITE AND/OR BLUE
Cut it Up Must have Die Cuts No. 125 – Patriotic Red, White, and Blue

thanks for popping by.
