Get Better Make-and-Take

So it's been said that life imitates art.  Well, last fall, I designed a make-and-take project featuring one of my favorite stamp sets in the Annual Inspiration Idea Book called Get Better.  I love the font, and I love the cheeky sentiment for the inside of the card.  Anyways, the day before the home gathering I designed this card for, I came down with a horrible cold.  It started as a slightly sore throat, but by the time the gathering started, my throat was on fire and my nose was beginning to run.  I felt horrible, but luckily, the gathering was in a large room at a community center, and I was able to "keep a safe distance" from the guests -- who jokingly said they were going to send their make-and-takes to me.  :-)

Supplies used:
*Get Better stamp set
*Swan Lake paper packet (retired)
*12" x 12" Slate cardstock
