Get well soon card

I found out that someone I've known through work for several years had a heart attack this weekend followed by a quadruple bypass. They say that he'll be fine, but I thought I would make up a quick get well soon card to send to him. Rather than spending hours trolling the blogs for inspiration (since I've already spent a good portion of the evening doing that already), I decided to simply grab a page that I printed from the Mojo Monday 2009 sketchbook the other day and make a card based upon the first sketch I saw. Turns out it was the sketch from September 7, 2009 (how weird is it that I should pick the date closest to today?) and it was perfect for a male card. I pulled out my trusty scraps from My Mind's Eye Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Boy (have I mentioned how much I love, love, love this pad of paper) and put together is card in a really short period of time. It would have been even shorter but instead of making the banner with my scissors, I had to draw it in SCAL and cut it.

So sorry about the reason for the card. It turned out great. I have some of those same papers and love them. Thanks for sharing your blog over at the Quick Quotes blog. I am now a follower.
