Just the cutest card, ever!

Everyone probably knows this by now, but, my husband fell off a ladder while erecting a 40 x 60' tent for a local bluegrass festival.  He fractured his right hip and foot and is at home recuperating and doing really well.

Shirley, aka Okieladybug, put a post on the Cricut message board and the Old Cricut Community page on Facebook to make people aware of this and we've received several beautiful cards from the people on there. Fred and I both appreciate the gesture!

In today's mail, there was a Priority Mail envelope which I assumed had some cards inside that I would include in my next shipment out for Cards for Soldiers.  Imagine how surprised I was when I opened it up and found several sheets of stamped images for me to color, a sweet note to me and this wonderful card for Fred.

Linda Bonlin, hugabug on the MB, sent this card.  I can only imagine how many hours it took to design and make it!  We both absolutely cracked up when we saw it.


I wish you could see it in person!  There is so much detail on it and it fits our situation just perfectly!  Notice the banjo, guitar and fiddle!  The little signpost is so cute too!  I'm sure the expression on the woman's face is just about what mine would have been, had I been there when he fell, too.

The red ribbon on the right side looked like a cute embellishment, until I gently tugged on it......






It's a SLIDER!  The woman moves across the card with her net extended, ready to catch the guy!  How cute is that? 

Thanks again, Linda.  This will be a great keepsake for us!

You are so right Linda, this card is the cutest card that I've ever seen!!! I can't believe all the detail in this little card, it is just amazing! And I love how your little character slides across the card to catch Fred's character in her net, too stinkin' cute I tell ya'!!! This card needs to be framed and hung in your house Linda, cause I don't think Fred is going to live this one down for a while. LOL

LOVE IT!

Brenda--the only thing I see wrong with the card is that she didn't make the lady figure fat enough! LOL! Even the hair color on both figures is just about spot on, though!

It's definitely a card that will be kept. And I can hardly wait to show it off when visitors come by.
