Return to Blossoming Health

Just a quick post to share a card I made for this weeks' CAS(E) this sketch challenge and a little treat 'hat' box..
I used a strip of beautiful digital paper called Folk Art 'Clean' from Waltzingmouse along with a lacey punched strip beneath it (Martha Stewart.  This lovely get well sentiment is from Vintage Garden Seed Packet from WMS.  The card base is vintage cream and I used a Memento Nautical Blue ink. 

This is a great CAS sketch -  this would be lovely as a sympathy card with the appropriate sentiment or a Happy Birthday - don't you think?!   Very versatile!

Kent and I are off to visit my friend Anne, her husband and mother who now lives with them.  I met Anne (jdmommy) through Split Coast and it turns out she only lives about 40 minutes away, so we get together now and then.  Anne recently had surgery on her thumb so we are going to have some pizza with them and to hopefully help take her mind off her hand for a few hours!

I made this little top hat treat box to bring to Anne. You may remember when I first posted some of these in green colors on this post.   Anne's favorite color is red - so I thought it would be fun to make one for her in red!  The template is called Hat's Off and it's from Creations by AR  The bow I used on the brim of the hat is also a template called It's Bow Easy

 I even packaged the little treats inside the hat in a red polka dot bag!  She'll get a kick out of that I think!

Tomorrow I'll show you what I made for her mother, Evelyn!  (It's really cute!)
