Speedy Recovery

Back in July, I participated in the Young Crafters Unite Blog Hop.  For that post I made a onesie card for one of my expecting co-workers (you can see that post here).  She had a baby boy about two weeks ago, but has found herself back in the hospital because he has an E. coli infection.  The last I heard, the baby is doing much better, but we still want to send her our well wishes, so I came up with this little card for her and baby -

I stamped the full stamp onto a piece of scratch paper then stamped it three times along the card without reinking.  For the colored turtle, I inked up everything but the ice bag on his shell and stamped that fully inked at the end.  I drew in the rest of his shell with a black marker and colored him in with some water color pencils.  I thought I needed something in the lower right corner and was going to add a few rhinestones when I remembered the adorable little bug that is also part of this set so I stamped it three times without reinking and colored the first one in to look like a little lady bug.  Then I added some turtle colored twines alonge the top and rounded the bottom two corners.

I don't have a picture of it, but the inside is stamped with the punny sentiment from the set that says, "wishing you a speedy recovery."

This little card will be playing along with the following challenge -
