Get Well Card and Some Great News



















Well, here is a get well card. It is for my mom who has been in the hospital twice now in the last few weeks. She is having some heart problems (first time), and it has been stressful, especially so close to losing Alex (our nephew).  My mom got out of the hospital today after being there since last Wednesday. We're all hoping she won't have to go back anytime soon. They are still trying to get all of her meds regulated properly!  Anyway, I did the card using a new sketch site (to me) called Card Patterns.  It is their Sketch #106, and I did it for the Paper Variety's challenge to make a Get Well card and for Simon Says Stamp's challenge--anything goes.  I wanted to use some bright, cheerful colors.  The butterfly is from Fancy Pants, and much of the rest is from Pebbles!


In other news, my son and his friend got first place in NFL (National Forensics League) districts last weekend AND first place at the 2011 MSHSAA Speech District Tournament this weekend which means they get to compete at Nationals in Dallas, Texas, this summer and at State in April at The University of Missouri--Columbia for their speech and debate duet acting performance!! We are so proud of them! Mitch worked really hard this year in Speech and Debate and had a job as well as taking some tough classes! Yay, Mitch!
