Papertrey July Blog Hop
It's that time again, yay! July's Blog Hop with Papertrey Ink is another gorgeous inspiration photo:
Isn't it dreamy? I want to curl up in that window seat with a good book! Sigh . . . Here's the card I created based on this inspiration:
And the inside:
Yep, it's another get well card, just like June's Blog Hop! This one is for a friend who broke her shoulder on the job (she's a nurse). She's on a morphine patch while waiting for surgery, and I feel so bad for her. Hopefully, she'll get a little boost from this card!
This is actually my third attempt at a July Blog Hop card! I had an elaborate idea that came to me when I first saw the picture. I drew a sketch and brain stormed ideas. Then I sat down to make it. Um . . . didn't go so well. It looked hideous, actually. So I broke out some different stamp sets and moved things around and . . . nope, still hideous. :-D I decided that it wasn't meant to be, but at least I could use the elements to make Barbra a get well card. Well, once I stopped trying so hard, the card came together quickly and still reminded me very much of the inspiration picture! Woo hoo!
