Feel Better Amigo

Hello :-)
Just a quick post from me today, with a simple, get well card.


I guess when I made this card, I had that new MISTI tool in my head.
It's designed to make placing and lining up your stamps even easier, but,
as I don't have the budget for one right now, I  had to stamp my arrows by eye.
They have a little slant on them, but that's all part of the handmade look - right ??




Challenges.
Cute Card Thursday - Clean and Simple
Simon Says - Clean and Simple

NOTE : 
Huge thanks to everyone that's left a comment recently.
 I do appreciate each and every one of them.
Right now, I'm travelling a round trip of 180 miles to visit family and try to find a house, 
and this weekend both my parents ended up in  hospital !!
So, I'm struggling to find the time to reply, but I will get round to you all eventually ;-)

So sorry to hear of your struggles, not easy when you have that much going on at once. It will all work out though, it always does :)

As far as your card, very cute, I love the arrows and GREAT job placing them by hand! Maybe someday we'll both have MISTI's, I haven't invested in one yet either.

Hope your day is looking up! :) AJ

Aww... I couldn't leave here without commenting. This card is too cute and so sweet! Hope your parents are fine. And don't worry I don't have a MISTI too. I probably will not be getting one anytime soon. I really think your arrows stamping looks fine.
