Think outside the box

Here in WI we have had a long stretch of COLD weather with wind chills that get -25 or -30 during the night.  People have been SICK!!!  There is the head colds, nasal congestion, but also the flu.  My son lives in SC and they also got snow which is unusual and he has been to the doctor twice and off of work all week.  My step-son is also in SC and has had the flu.  My daughter was complaining of a headache tonight.  All I want to do is stay well and keep everyone away from me!!!!  On Sunday we are suppose to have a break in this weather, but then will get hit with snow.
For my card, I took a piece of cardstock and swiped it through Distress Oxide inks and then heated it and spritzed some water on it and heated it again.  Then I die cut the shape out and inked the stamps.  The sentiment is computer font.
Hope everyone stays healthy!

Cute card! I understand. I hate being around my parents right now because they come home sick. I can't get sick with the surgeries in February I am facing. I hope you can stay well. Edwina brown

This is such a great card, Lisa! I love the shade of pink and that you added the water color effect, the stitched dies you used for your "squares," and the clever sentiment. Thanks for sharing with us this week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.
