Feeling Better?

This is a photo of the card I sent last week to Marcia, one of my fellow Gingerwoodies and a frequent commenter here. She's going through Chemo. I hope things are going OK today, Marcia.

I chose to make the sentiment the focus of the card. The card stock background is Murdock Country Creations. It is glossy cardstock with a "Polished Stone" look. I love the look without the work, especially when I didn't have to pay for it. I was given several sheets of this when I was on a design team. Now that I've "found" it again, I'm guessing you'll see more of it sooner or later.

Finished Card Size: 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
Stamps: I hope you're feeling better(Stampabilities),
Printed Paper: Murdock Country Creations, Basic Grey
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip(SU), White card(Georgia Pacific)
Ink:Basic Brown( SU) Tattered Rose Distress Ink ( Ranger)
Other: Ticket Corner Punch (SU), Flowers (Prima) , Brads( Making Memories)

Here is a picture of what my desk looks like right now. All my ink pads are out of the holder and rubber banded shut. My markers are too. It's so sad...

But don't feel too sorry for me. I found a couple stamps I wanted to color when I was "cleaning up" the stamps, so I un-did the rubber bands and stamped a little tonight. :) I have to finish packing our suitcases tomorrow. If you've ever dealt with "professional" packers, you know that if it's not breathing, it gets packed. And they don't stop to ask questions. My strategy is to have every thing that we are planning to take with us already in the van by the time they arrive. --And the trash will be emptied or clearly identified. That way there are no mistakes like the time they packed a trash can containing a used Pull-Up !
I had the kids pack their suitcases today. For the younger ones, I'll check behind them to advise and/or add to it, if necessary tomorrow.
Ahhh tomorrow, another busy day. Is there ever going to be a lazy day this summer?

One more session of chemo. See my smile. It is easier having such wonderful friends. The card is gorgeous in real life. I have it on my desk in the kitchen so Jacki, you are always with me.

That paper is gorgeous. I thought you have used the inks and made it yourself.
I hope your move goes smoothly and I can't wait to see your new home. Please post photos when you get a moment to breathe.
