Get Well Soon

Hi all! It has been a really relaxing last week of summer vacation here, despite my husband being gone four of the five weekdays. I was able to hang out with my kids and do some things we'd meant to do all summer so it was great. I'm happy that they will be off to school next week because they all really do like school and learning but I will miss them. It is hard for me to believe that my oldest is in his last year of elementary school (heck, it even snuck up on my dad). We plan to make the most of our final weekend together.

A couple of nights ago I got a call from a cousin in Arkansas and it turned out he was in the hospital. He'd been having some chest pains and ended up with a couple of stents. I figured he could use a card; he is a good cousin, calling to check up on me from time to time and it is time to return the favor.

I was able to use the trendy chevron border punch to mimic a heart rate. I love when something turns out to be multi-purpose, however, I hope I don't have to make too many other cards like this in the future! *heart and sentiment are from a|muse studio, punch from EK Success*

While I was stamping, I managed a couple of other things that I hope to share soon. I also took the time to update my "For Sale" page here on the blog. Hope everyone has a happy holiday weekend!

Very cute! I just added it to my Evernote clippings!

I hope you cousin is on the mend.
