Get Well Card Using Cricut Artiste Cartridge

Hello friends. How are you doing?  What is the weather like in your area?  We are starting to get into the upper 80's and 90's already.    We passed Spring this year; and went straight to summer.  LOL!

I created another card for my mother.  She is not doing very well in the nursing home.  They have caused her more medical problems than she had when she went in.  She was supposed to only be there 20 days for wound card; but has already been there 7 weeks.  I am flying out to see her; and hopefully I can figure out what she needs while I am there.

My granddaughter is due to deliver a baby boy sometime soon. She has been having contractions for a couple days.  I was hoping she would have the baby before I get there or while I am there.  I will have another great-grandson.  Hard to believe it!  I look so young.  LOL!  

This card is a beautiful purple in person; but pictures don't do it justice; that's for sure.  I love purple and yellow together; so I decided to add the doily in yellow on the inside.  I normally don't buy very many stamp sets that aren't CTMH; but I love HOTP stamp sets and papers.  This one caught my eye; so I had to have it.  I thought about coloring it; but decided not to.  LOL! I was trying to get it in the mail on Monday.
