Cards From Friends

Don't you love going to the mailbox and finding a card there? Me too. It's almost like opening up a present. I recently received several cards from some of my friends. I had been having some health issues and woke up one morning with double vision. After several visits to both my medical doctor and eye doctor I was told it was a benign condition that would probably take 3-4 months to resolve. I got a pair of glasses from the eye doctor that had a prism attached to one lens and it magically made the double vision disappear as long as I looked straight ahead but made everything blurry. The prism was like a vinyl cling. Imagine looking at the world through Saran Wrap. I quickly decided it was easiest to wear a patch. Imagine a black pirate patch. Anything I did up close was not double so I spent time stamping and reading and watching Netflix on my laptop. It was as close to "normal" as I could feel. Now imagine my surprise, along with the doctors surprise, when after two weeks the double vision disappeared and my eyesight was back to normal. During the two weeks though I had to undergo several tests and it was a little scary not knowing for sure what was going on. Along with so many well wishes via email and Facebook and phone calls I did receive some beautiful cards.

Janice's Card
This card was from fellow demonstrator Janice Estes. She used the stamp set Everything Eleanor. The swirl in the background is heat embossed with white embossing powder and has ink sponged over it. Such a pretty card that I used the design for one of my stamp classes.

Carol's CardMy friend, Carol Loehr, made this card using a retired Stampin' Up Die that she bought from one of my retirement sales. I think her card is prettier than any I ever made using the die.

Catherine's CardThis pretty card is from my friend and upline, Catherine Harwood. I should have taken a photo of it open. The bottom of the card flips upwards and open.

While this next card was not a get well card I wanted to share it too since it was a congratulations card from friends Cheryl and Mike White. Mike is also a fellow demonstrator and the first and only male demonstrator in my downline. They also gave me a journal to take on my Stampin' Up Getaway Incentive Trip to Washington DC and some special DC stickers to jazz it up.

Brighten someone's day …. send a card.

      Hi Christi, Congrats on earning the trip – it’s my first too. What kind of things do you have planned? Did you sign up for one of the SU meals with other demonstrators? I did sign up for dinner the first night at PJ Clarkes.
