Get Well

It has been quite a week! I am slowly getting my computer back up and running. I guess I don't have to clean out all of the junk - it did it for me :) I guess that is the bright side, yes? I am trying to get my address book back. That is the hardest part. I have friends and even some relatives who I have lost their emails and their addresses. I hope they send me an email. If you think I need your email or snail mail address, please get in touch with me. On another note, I had parent teacher conferences this week at school so I worked late on Wed. and Thurs. and got Friday off. The weather was absolutely gorgeous on Friday. Lucy and I took two long walks. And speaking of Lucy, she is three years old today! She had a special dinner and got to go for a long ride. It drizzled all day today so no walks for us. We went to a neighboring town and bought a John Deere riding lawn mower and snow blower attachment for it. Bill is unable to use the walk behind and can't shovel and was feeling useless so we thought this may help. He is tickled pink!

Yadayadayada... I am rambling and you came to see a card. Sorry. My card was made for a friend who had surgery Friday. He is my computer guy and got me all set up after the crash. It was such a simple card to make. My friends Joanne and Lynette both have made this type of card lately and I needed to try it. The sun stamp is from a BoBunny set called Barefoot & Bliss. The cattails are Penny Black. The sentiment is from a Verve set titled Wishing You. I used Momento ink, Tuxedo Black and Tangelo. The paper is Stampin Up Pumpkin Pie. The white cardstock is Papertrey Ink. Oh and I could not resist putting a little sparkle on the cattails with a clear Spica pen.

I will be anxious to hear what you think...

Until next time... Happy trails to you....



  1. Hi Sheri, What a great card for a guy! Lucy and I share a birthday but I'm just a little older. LOL Glad you got your computer going again. Do you need my email address or Connie's?

  2. Oh Sheri, I hear you about the computer stuff. You know we ended up having to get a new one...the old one was 9 years old, but I am still adding names to my e-mail address book as I get e-mail.

    Love your card idea, will have to give it a try..always enjoy visiting your blog and give Lucy a huge hug!!!! She is such a cutie!!!

    Tell Bill congratulations on the John Deere riding lawn mower/snow blower....good for him!!!

  3. Sheri I love your card - perfect masculine card but also works for anyone!! Happy birthday hugs and kisses to Lucy! Congrats to Bill for his new toy!!

  4. Guys love having a new "toy" and it will be good for him. :) Love your card, Sheri! I've been wanting to make one using that type of design.

  5. Love this card Sheri!! I have the Wishing You, but not the cattails or the moon, hmmmm I'll have to improvise.

  6. So pretty, Sheri - don't you just love that idea? Happy Birthday to Lucy, too:)

  7. I'm glad you're getting the computer going. Hope everyone contacts you.
    Your card is so cute. Love how you did it.

  8. Doesn't my Mom make the BEST cards!
    I can't believe Lucy is already 3yrs old, time flys by when we are having fun and she is FUN!
    I am also glad Dad got a riding lawn-mower, snow scooper because it will make him feel useful again, he HATED it when Mom mowed for him!!

  9. There is something very calming about this card. I really like it! Hugs!
