Get Better, Lil' Gator!

The card I am sharing today was made for my 11-year old grandson.  Last Saturday he had an emergency Appendectomy and was home all this last week recovering from the surgery.  I  made this card to cheer him up (btw he's recovering just fine).

I wanted to make something fun, so I pulled out an old Stampin' Up set, Wild About You.  I stamped the Alligator image with his friend the bird, who decided to ride along on top.  That alligator is the cutest, don't you think?  

After cutting the stamped piece of card stock into a rectangle shape, I adhered it to a piece of Bashful Blue card stock cut with an Apothecary Accents framelit.  Flags were added underneath for additional interest.  Then it was popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals on the Chevron embossed card base, and I was ready to send it off.

Thanks so much for dropping by today!  If you have a moment, I'd love it if you'd take a moment and say hi!

Hope the remainder of your weekend is great!

Such a cute, fun, card that is sure to make your grandson feel better, Stef. I love your colour choices - and the stamps, texture and banners are perfect!
