Get Well Mug

Hi Everyone....I have a "get well" card to share with you today.  I have used this stamp set a few times before and for me, it's a "no fail" set.   It's easy to use and whatever I make with it has been something I've been happy with.  I have a few sets like that, then I have others that I can't seem to create with at all, do you have any like that?  I'm in a re-stocking phase of my cards right now.  I'm short on Get Well, Thank You and Birthday cards, so you might see quite a few of those in the coming weeks.  Check out today's creation:

I started with a Kraft card base.  I think it pairs well with the soft pinks in the patterned papers (from "A Happy Heart). I used my Mugs & Kisses Stamp Set by GinaK for the mug and tea tag.  Do you see a little faux stitching happening?  It's a stamp from "Stitchery Doo" by SP&Company.  I tried sewing on my cards once.  It didn't go well.  I swore a little.  Then I went online and got me Stitchery Doo and things were much better in my crafty life as far as my attempts at sewing went.

I love this feather.  Feathers are a fun touch, but I end up covered in little tiny feathers after digging in the bag so find one the right size/color.  I'm sure the other moms at school wonder what I do during the day to end up with feathers stuck in my hair. *snort!*

And yes, there's a cut from Cricut on this card, too.  The shape behind the mug is from Elegant Edges.  I have gotten my money's worth out of that cartridge! I'm going to be taking a little project break over the weekend.  I have family coming in town and won't have time to be an active blogger, so I'm going MIA project-wise for a couple of days.  Please come back by on Monday though....I'm participating in the FCCB Cricut Crawl and I will have a giveaway on my site.  It will be worth it, I promise. :)

Sweet card Sonya! I love the mat you created for your mug. And that feather is such a cute, fun touch, love it. Now you've got me smiling as I wonder what the "other Moms" must think about how you spend school!
