Speedy Recovery to Owen

Our grandson, Owen (three and a half years old) had tubes put in his ears and had his adenoids out yesterday. Everything went well and hopefully he will STAY well for a long time. He's pretty much been sick since he started preschool/daycare in January. This is the card I made for him yesterday.

I stamped the background of the pocket with a long-retired Stampin' Up! background stamp called Just Jeans. I stamped the stitching using another retired SU set called Pocket Fun and cut it out. I stamped the frog (from the Pocket Fun set, also), colored with Copic markers, and cut it out. I added googlie eyes. I also added some "rivets" to the corners of the pocket. I mounted the pocket and frog on foam squares. The background was made using a Cuttlebug Diamond Plate embossing folder and silver shimmery paper. I matted with black. The sentiment is from another SU set called Curvy Verses, which I assume is also retired. I matted each piece with black and mounted them on foam squares, too.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Aww, poor little lad! Hope he's better soon. Love the card! I've just made one using that embossing folder - out of my medication wrappers lol!

I hope that Owen begins feeling much better very soon. Grace had tubes put in her ears when she turned one year old. It seems that a lot of children have that procedure.

I smiled BIG the moment I saw the card that you made for him. It is so adorable. I'm sure that Owen will love it.

Oh, how cute! I recently got a pocket stamp and was planning to use it with my Just Jeans background -- love that background stamp! Been trying to think what I could put in the pocket. The frog is adorable. Wyatt will probably feel much better now that his ears are fixed. They do a lot of that in our Day Surgery department. Odd how so many kids need that these days.
