Jen...........This is just gorgeous!!! I had to keep looking and looking because I wasn't sure those oranges were stamped. They look like a patterned paper with the image so crisp and clean. You did a fantastic job on this one! I just hope some of those Vitamin C vibes from stampin' help you to recover quickly!!!

Wonderful card. Love the banner. So sorry the man is sick... men are the worst babies when they don't feel well. :-)

What a great zingy card - and just right for the extra vitamins to fight of man flu!

This is so pretty! I was giggling at man flu... man flu- like woman flu but apparently so much worse because of all the whining? Is that what we are talking about?

Dana said...

I now NEED those fruit stamps Jen...This is refreshingly unique and makes me feel like I've just been splashed. The added trim makes me think of Victorian tea...delish. I hope you and yours are feeling tip-top soon.

Lorraine said...

Jen, this is fantastic!!! I really can't type enough exclamation marks! The colours make me think of cough drops, and the images are so smart - oranges for vit C, I love it! Hope you feel better soon; good to see the flu didn't zap your creative abilities.

Anne Marie said...

What a pretty card! Love the bright citrus colors and the banner on the bottom is a great touch. Hope you feel better soon! :)

Love those big ol' oranges...never seen such a stamp. And that big ol' sentiment is just perfect. I like the oranges for like the Vitamin C reference when people are sick...very clever to use on a get well card!

Amber said...
