Wishing you Well...

So - I mentioned that I know way too many people who have had surgery this week...so I'm on to my next get well card.

This one is for Lauren. She had her gallbladder out Friday - and my goodness, I hope she's feeling a bit better. I know Lauren mentioned in her post the other day about her abdomen being so sore, that she may no longer consider ever getting a tummy tuck. Lauren - I can tell you - a friend of mine had both procedures (she had gastric bypass surgery and lost 1/2 of herself (and then some)...literally!) and said if she knew what it would have felt like, she wouldn't have done it...she said the gallbladder was NOTHING in comparison.

I remember visiting her in the hospital with another friend and we made the mistake of making her laugh...I felt so bad.

Anyway - onto the card...
I used Papertrey's With Sympathy set, and the new anniversary set, Everyday Classics. I used the rock and roll technique for the flowers, starting with Summer Sunrise, then Berry Sorbet, and rolling the edges in Raspberry Fizz. Kept it simple and neat.

Wishing you well Lauren!! Hope you feel more like yourself today! {{{HUGS}}}
