Get Well Card

I talked to my Mom today and she told me my brother cut off the tip of his finger down to the first joint. They sewed it back on but he may still have to have surgery. So I decided to make him a card. Tolet him know I was thinking of him. Even though I am not there in Missouri with him.
I used an image from called "little helping hands" I used copics to color the image. The card stock, hardware and  ribbon is from "stampin up". The button in the corner is a bandaid. I don't know where I got it but it was among my stash of stuff. You all know what I mean, I know I'm not the only one with stuff we forget where it came from. {LOL} Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

I read it in less than two days and am very unpationaly waiting for my daughter to bring me "new moon" tonight. I will probly have it done by tomorrow night. I hate it when I get so caught up in abook and have to wait for the next one even if it is only a few hours. lol
