A Summer Silhouettes Get Well

I was not going to post a card today.  I figured because it was Memorial Day that most people would be out of town or busy celebrating.  But I decided to go ahead and post anyway.  Not EVERYONE goes out of town!!  We had left earlier in the week and came back on Saturday.  That wasn't our original thought when we planned our getaway!  It as the only days we had free and I was not paying attention to the calendar.  Fortunately we were able to book a hotel room for a couple of nights.  Not the hotel I wanted but at least we were able to get a room.  I will pay better attention to the calendar next time we head out of town.  It was a nice get away and now I'm trying to catch up on all the stuff that didn't get done while I was gone!  Oh well!!

Today's card is made using the Summer Silhouettes set.  I wanted to make a simple, quick and yet pretty get well card for my sister. She had surgery on her foot last week and I still have not sent her a card.  I'm such a bad sister!!! LOL

I used Riding Hood Red card stock because it's retiring and I have quite a few loose sheets of it left.  I also got smart when I made this card and stamped a few extra images and folded a few more pieces of card stock so I can make some Mother's Day cards for the spring garage sale next year!!!  It will only take me a few minutes to put them all together and I'll add them to my slowly growing stash!!!

The words on my card came from the Delightful Dozen set.  I was thinking of the Petite Pairs set but grabbed this one.  It worked and that is what's important!!

This card was a very quick card to make.  It did go together quickly too!  It was simple to stamp and it has a clean crisp look to it!  Plus it does have a few layers to it!  And you know how much I LOVE layers!!!

I hope you all had a very nice and yet safe Memorial Day holiday!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
