Get Well Card - Yeah, it appears I'm in a card zone . . .

So today, my BFF Brandy was in the house and you know what that means - we were cleaning and organizing.  Specifically, I have tons of paper (I admit I have a bit of a paper problem) and they are all in bins mixed, up, etc, no organization to be found.  So we pulled all of these paper packs out - well, Brandy did while I was making this card, and we attempted to do some sorting and general reorganization.  Of course we had to take a quick trip to Joann's to check to see if the new Halloween DCWV packs were out (they were not!!) but Brandy is a bargain hunter and she found some awesome K & Company stacks marked down to $3.97 on clearance and that was before my 20% off coupon.  Does this girl do it all or what?

Oh My God look at all of this crap!!

Anyway, here is the card I made while we were working.  We have a good friend who is unfortunately at the beginning of her fight with breast cancer.  We wanted to make her a card to let her know we are here and willing to help pitch in in any way we can.

First I want to say that this card sketch and layout is completely scraplifted from the Verve stamp gallery.  The original artist's name is Cresta Woodruff and you can see her card here in the Verve stamp gallery.

Paper:  Imagine - Audrey, Stampin' Up Very Vanilla, K & Company Juilanne
Stamps:  Verve - Bloom & Grow, Stampin' Up French Script Background Stamp
Spellbinders:  small scallop square and squares
Ribbon:  Papertrey Ink & Bazzil 

As always, thanks for stopping by!! 


  1. What an absolutely beautiful card. This will definitely cheer your friend up. Your design is so gorgeous and elegant! And wow, you did have lots of stuff to organize! But I sympathize because I, too am a certified paper-addict :D


  2. Lisa, the actual design is someone else's. I need to get that info posted - tomorrow I promise! Thank you for the compliments though and I am glad to know that I'm not the only one with a paper problem. Lol.

  3. I, too, have a terrible paper addiction ... but I don't think it compares to yours! Hahaha.
    How wonderful to have a friend hang out and clean!
    Interestingly, I live in Woodstock too AND have a friend who is beginning her breast cancer battle. hmmmm. :-)
