{feel better soon.}



For this card, I used sketch #19 at Cardabilities and combined it with Amy's recycle challenge at My Sketch World. Amy insists that we "think outside of the box" and recycle some ordinary item on a card. Well, my hubs needed new BP meds this week - and there was his pill bottle on the counter top. Score. It may be a little bit "out there" to use a prescription med's top on a card...but you know, when you're sick and feeling crappy, humor is a very good thing. :)

{feel better soon.}
I turned the Cardabilities sketch on it's side and went from there. The base is bazzill, layered with my little shoebox pp & sei pp. Everything is inked with sei "mist" light blue ink. I placed the pill bottle top on a jillibean soup die & wrapped it with maya road scalloped ribbon, & then tied it with baker's twine. The felt sticker on top is by MS. The tiny red primas are some of the first primas I ever bought! Epoxies are also part of the sei "Wintersong" line - from last year.

Thank you for coming by my blog - and happy Friday!! It's been a very snowy week in upstate New York, and the forecast calls for more snow for the next 4 days!! Stay warm!!

hugs, patti
