Get Well Soon Matthew

As I mentioned the other day, my BFF's eldest son is in the hospital with an eye injury and I wanted to make him a card to try and cheer him up when he gets the patches off. Willow spent the evening with me doing her own cards, even using the cuttlebug to add a bit of texture! But kept getting frustrated because she can write her own name, but she can't get to grips with writing Matthew yet.

Anyway, Matthew is 15 and as you can imagine, its not easy making any kind of card for a teenage boy, because lets face it - according to him (and his mum, come to think of it) card-making is pretty gay lol

I was racking my brains for an idea for his card when Pamela mentioned nurses, so I trawled the internet looking for a suitable "Hot Nurse" image for his card and this is what I eventually settled on. Believe me, you really don't want to see the results you get by entering Hot Nurse into Google!!

red and grey card are both core'dinations, the grey card has been embossed using the Paisley folder in the Cuttlebug, red card (and image) was cut using oval scallop (and oval) nesties.

Black polka dot paper is from CCSR The Big One

Ribbon is from the beetle black Doodlebug Boutique trims

LOL ... You don't wanna' google for 'snakes' either as we discovered when my daughter was doing a project about reptiles.

Hope your friend's son recovers soon.
