Wishing You Well!

Hello dear friends!
I hope this day finds you well, happy and enjoying another summer day! We have had 90 degrees daily for almost a week and I'm not complaining! Of course, that also has to do with not having to go to work and firing up our room airconditioners and fans in the morning! I've been walking around the lake (3 mi) every day at 6:00 AM and having outside work done by 10:00! It gets a little hot after that! DH and I did take our kayaks out in the evening a couple of nights ago. Good times! I made this card for a friend who just had surgery. It seems when I'm not stealing outright from Debbie Olson I'm channeling her! I used vintage picnic from Papertrey Ink and Cosmo Cricket paper with my beloved Kraft card stock.
I make several of this type of card at a time. I stamp the picnic basket on different papers and color them all up. since it's summer I stamped the daisies on cream (about 8 of them!) and colored them up. Then I cut my baskets out and lay them on the cream paper with the daisies. I'll have a very different card on the same idea to show you in a day or so.
I'm trying to get ahead as DH is on vacation next week! Yeah!
I'm doing great after my surgery and I see the DR. today. Thanks for all your well wishes! They are very much appreciated!
Better get some other stuff done before my appt. See you soon and thank for coming by the

Love the picnic baskets! This is one of my favorite stamp sets from PapertreyInc. We also seem to be channeling each other-I just made a card with that very same set! And then there was the apron card/tilda lol. Elle
