Good - Bye Tonsils

You might just think I am a little crazy...What's a Nonnie to do when her only granddaughter has to have her tonsils out...Make a card for her...of course!! The tonsillectomy was today and "little one" is OK. Thanks Goodness. Her mom baked and decorated a "Good-bye" tonsil cake that we shared last weekend. Of course she received lots of little presents and good wishes along with popsicles and sherbet.
Her love of peace signs and bling inspired me to craft this card. Can you see the error??? The peace sign is upside-down!! I should have been more observant!

The paper pack was from Michael's so it made it easy to layer the DP. The sentiments were computer generated. This brought a smile to her face and if it helped ease her fears, I am glad.

DP, peace sign stickers, ribbon: Michael's

I hope that you enjoyed viewing this card and that I have inspired you to "think outside the box" when creating cards. Sometimes the most unusual and least expected cards are truly appreciated. This is why I love crafting cards. I have not seen too many Good-bye tonsil cards in the stores!! Please feel free to leave a comment and/or follow this blog. Have a wonderful weekend.
