Some people are worth buying a whole stamp set for. My sister-in-law is one of them. She's undergoing treatment for cancer, so I've been sending a card here and there to cheer her along. I purchased "Recipe for Happiness" from MFT specifically so I could combine it with "The Whole Herd" (which I already had) to make this card.
Is that too cute, or what?!
The sentiment from MFT's "Recipe for Happiness" actually says, "You're Souper Cool." I stamped "Get Well Soon" from Stampin' Up in black, used my MISTI to place the "Souper", masked off the side words, inked in Cranberry (CTMH) to match the scalloped border, and stamped. The yellow background paper is also from CTMH in Sunny Yellow (long retired, so I'll be tagging the lovely Karen Day because she and I have this thing going about using up old CTMH paper). The stitched die cuts are all MFT, as are the coordinating dies for the two stamp sets used. I trimmed down the soup pot because my Copic coloring bled outside the lines.
I'm guessing this will put a smile on my SIL's face, which was the whole point...and is worth every penny!
Until next time,
