Get Well Soon

Hello everyone!  I received some sad news recently, a friend, who is one of the most positive people I know, is having a medical struggle.  In the hopes of cheering her, I made her this card using kitties from Newton's Antics (which has a matching die BTW, which I also used, so handy!) & Newton's Sick Day:

Get Well Soon Support Kitties Card by Crafty Math Chick | Newton's Antics & Newton's Sick Day by Newton's Nook Designs

I wanted to include a little something in the card, so I found a pattern for a support ribbon by the Crochetbug HERE in the appropriate color and crocheted a small ribbon for my friend.  I didn't want to adhere it to the card and make the back all sticky in case she wanted to repurpose it.  So I stacked two 1/4" Pop It's on top of one another to bring the kitties up to a 1/8" height, which is the width of the ribbon, and strategically placed one kitty at the top and one kitty at the bottom so that they hold the ribbon in place during card viewing but it can also be easily removed and pinned on a label or a hat or tucked into a pocket as a little reminder that she is strong and that I am thinking of her and praying for a successful treatment and a smooth & speedy recovery and that I care about her very much.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog!  Have a great day!
