Laughter IS the best medicine!

Do you remember the commercial from many years ago with the little kid telling his dad to eat two cookies to feel better? My sisters and brothers and I used to say it all the time when someone wasn't feeling well. I couldn't resist making a card inspired by that commercial.


I sent this card to my very dear sister. She recently had a biopsy done and found out it was cancerous. She is a year older than I am, which makes it harder to believe. I am quite worried but I think that if I could see her I would feel much better. We both have busy families, though, so our visits are always short. Thank goodness for email! She told me she feels fine and I know that she will be fine. I am very close with my siblings (yes, all five of us are great friends!) so she has been on my mind a lot these few weeks. I don't think she minds that I share this with you. She'll let me know, though.

On a lighter, but still stressful, note, I have just sent in my FIRST A Muse DT assignment. I can't believe I just said that! I don't know if or when any of the cards might appear on the A Muse website, but I will let you know if I see my cards there :) I had a lot of fun creating and wish I could share with you, but I cannot. I will share some other fun stuff with you soon.

card info: notecard and image by A Muse, paper and ribbon from my supply, pop dots, Prismacolor markers, jet black, cool grey 20%, sand and walnut, silver Signo pen, computer generated sentiment.
