COF: Get well soon!

Good Morning, friends!

Today I have a card to share for the Craft of Faith,
a faith based card group over on Splitcoaststampers.
Each month, the hostess gives us a scripture and a challenge ~
it's such an amazing mix of adding faith into our cardmaking!

My sweet stamping friend Shelly, who is also a nurse, 
gave us a wonderful challenge:

Scripture:  2 Corinthians 1:3-4
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of all compassion and God of all encouragement, who encourages us in our every affliction, so that we may be able to encourage those who are in any affliction with the encouragement with which we ourselves are encouraged by God. For as Christ’s sufferings overflow to us, so through Christ does our encouragement also overflow.”

As a Christian and a nurse, January is very busy in the hospital 
with those who are afflicted with illnesses. Let's make a Get well card for our January challenge and send it to someone to put a smile on his/her face.

Thank you, Shelly! I love your theme!
*edited - I made 2 more cards tonight to share!*

I used Birdie Brown's Bedside Manner from My Favorite Things stamps.
I was so happy when MFT released this adorable doctor ♥
I purchased this stamp set to make a card 
for my husband who works tirelessly with his patients.
He does so much good and has such an incredible compassion.
And, right now, he's in such horrible pain from passing a kidney stone
yet you wouldn't know it from his demeaner.  
He's wonderful!

The cat and the puppy are a nod to the 2 strays 
that my daughter 'gifted' us, LOL and my husband said 
'It's okay. Give them a chance."
She came home from college one weekend with a kitten in tow
and the puppy was running in and out of traffic on the highway.
The kitty/puppy stamp is from a WPlus 9 stamp set.
And that's it for me today!

Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥


  1. What a gorgeous and original card Kelly - love the back story to it, and I am sure your DH will love it. Prayers for his recovery!!

  2. What a very sweet card! I really like the little bit of texture stamped in the background. This makes a great get well card.

  3. Kelly, your card is adorable - and I loved hearing how it ties in with your DH and with your DD who lovingly brought home strays. (I'm also giggling that you and I chose the same stamp this month.)

  4. Well, that cat and dog just won the lottery!! I love this precious card and hope that your husband is soon pain free!! What a keeper!!

  5. You have a so good hubby, Kelly, and loved reading the story behind the adorable stamps you used! Such lovely card and surely will make your hubby smile!! I wish him a quick recovery from his kidney stone pain!

  6. They are both so cute Kelly - Big hugs going out to your hubby! My hubby passes kidney stones every other year it seems.. So painful... So I feel for you husband!


  7. Both are so cute. Great stamp to have for the get well occasions. So kind to take in both strays!

  8. This is such a fun stamp set- mine not inked up yet...... I so love the card you made your hubby- sorry he is suffering- those kidney stones are very painful!!! Your second card is wonderful too! I so love the subtle stamping on the BG and the bright cheery colors you used! Thanks for joining in the COF Get Well month!!!

  9. What a saint of a hubby! Prayers for quick healing. I remember driving five hours home one night from "vacation" with hubby lying horizontally in the passenger car seat - not a fun time! These cards are just the cutest! Down to the little cat and dog! Super cute, Kelly!

  10. What a wonderful DH you have and how kind of you both to take them in. Wonderful cards, both of them x.
