Happy Rehab!

I live in a seniors community (I know, I know -- I look so young in my picture! LOL ... well, it was my baptism photo, what can I say?!), where many of my best buddies, including Mr. Smiley, have had their joints replaced. That calls for a special card. But is it a "get well" card when it's not that they are ill. "Hope you're up dancing soon"? Maybe.

One of my pals is in an inpatient rehab center now, following a hip replacement. I'm hoping the new hip will give her wings to soar, living a pain-free existence. With that in mind, there are probably plenty of ideas rattling around in my head, but here is the card I came up with:

The pretty aqua color paper is from a favorite stack. As soon as I get the name of it, I'll edit this post to include it. The butterfly was Cricut-cut, and the base card was hole punched using my ol' standby Martha Stewart Around-the-Corner Eyelet punch. The font is one I'm sampling from MyFonts.Com printed on my HP Printer. On the butterfly's antennae (jewelry wire), I embellished with Jolee 4mm bicone crystals in aqua. This week, Michael's has Jolee Swarovski crystals on sale 2 for $7 ... time to stock up! (I make beaded jewelry, too, so beads are always handy for card embellies.)

I hope your soul soars today too!
