Get Well Soon Card

Happy Thursday!  I hope you are all having a fabulous week!  Mine is going well - most of all I'm looking forward to this weekend.  I have a fun scrap night planned with one of my best friends  - something we haven't done in quite a while and I can't wait!!

The card I have to share today is one I made for the girl who lives two houses down from us.  She was so excited to tell us that she was finally riding her bike without training wheels.  Well, not two days after she shared that exciting news with us, my husband saw her sitting on her front porch with her dad, and the poor girl had a cast on her foot.  He asked what happened, and what do you know??  She fell off her bike and broke her foot!!  Poor thing - so soon after finally getting those training wheels off too!

I just had to make her a card and this is what I came up with.  All the images came from the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge.  I created the cast by cutting the 'bed' image that looks like the little pajamas with the footies.  Then I just cut off one leg and the tip of the toes and voila - a cast!  I cut the bike image out twice, once in grey and once in black, then fussy cut the tires and seat for the layers.

I'm going to submit this card into this weeks challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut, which is 2012 Olympics - make a project with a sports theme.  Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my creation!!
