Yesterday I was busy working on this card for my mom.  She's going to have a knee replacement on Friday and I am hoping it will be the beginning of a much needed return to good health.  Once this knee heals, then she will have to have the other one done.  As she has said, many a time, it's no fun getting old!  LOL.

This card was inspired by Paulien at Swirlydoos.  You can find her tutorial here.  I used Close to my Heart papers "Lucy" to make the card and the roses.  The little bird is from Prima and I inked it with Blush and Sweet Leaf to co-ordinate with the papers.  The butterfly stamp is from the CTMH set "Sweet Moments", and of course I made the roses using CTMH's Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge!

Good luck with your surgery Mom!
Love, Linda
