Well, here it is Monday again. Weekends just fly by don't they? I hate to wish my life away, but I hope the work week goes by as fast as the weekend seemed to!
Yesterday Pam teased me about digging up weeds and planting them in my yard. I told her that weeds are just un-loved flowers! If someone had planted some bright yellow dandelions in a pretty pot and wrapped a bow on it, we'd probably all be buying dandelions in florist shops! Anyway, I took a picture of the purple flowers (that I think are really weeds) so you can see how pretty they really are. They have runners that spread out so it will make a good ground cover, and I think the flowers look like delphiniums - only they aren't as tall as delphiniums. Anyone know what they are?
Today my best friend's daughter is going to the hospital to have back surgery. She's suffered with back pain since she was in junior high school, so I'm glad that she will get some relief. If you have time to say a little prayer for her and the surgeons who will be operating on her, please do so!
I have made a little get well card to send her, and I hope she likes it

I used the cute little Squigglefly image called Get Your Bounce Back that Rich Davis drew. I think this bunny is so cute and I hope my friend's daughter feels as good as he seems to when she's recovered!
My image panel was a little larger than I wanted for my card layout, so I trimmed the edges a bit, and the bottom of the panel cut really ragged because I was trimming off such a small sliver. So, I trimmed again and my blade grabbed a piece of the ragged edge and tore it! So I had to trim yet again. It reminded me of when I was a kid and my mom would cut my hair. She'd keep getting it shorter and shorter to "even it up"!
Anyway, there was still a little bit of a tear on the bottom edge, so I cut a flower from the designer paper I used on the card (which is from Pink Armadillo by the way) and stuck it over the small tear.
The image is colored with Copic markers and the purple card stock piece was embossed with the swirl embossing folder and then sponged with lovely lilac ink from Stampin' Up!
Here's a picture of the inside

I printed the words with my computer and then stuck another flower that was cut from the paper.
Remember that today is a new challenge on the Squigglefly blog! I never did get a card made for the last one - shame on me! I wish you all a wonderful day and thanks for looking!
