Feel Better Soon

Hello everyone! On vacation yay!  DH and I landed in Orlando on Saturday night and drove straight to Vera Beach. This is the first year we have come here by ourselves without any of the grandchildren and I have to say we are enjoying ourselves! We rented bikes for the week and started a fun activity called "Geochaching"  Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called "geocaches" or "caches", anywhere in the world. A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook where the geocacher enters the date they found it and signs it. We found 7 of them here in Vera Beach!  Tomorrow we are going parasailing and I can't wait and  I'll let ya know how it was!

My get well card was created using the adorable image "Not So Hot" by Phindy's Place - .My Cameo cut the digi image out perfectly The easy directions to cut with the Cameo is found in the paper craft magazine "Through The Craft Room Door". You will also receive 13 free digi's!

I used stripe card stock to make it look like wall paper and place a thin strip of brown at the bottom to give the appearance of baseboard and I embossed the tan paper. Colored with Copics. 
Hope you have a great day!
