Warning: Contagious!

Don't say I didn't warn you when you're saying the phrase on this stamp over and over today. Ever since I worked on this card last night, I must have said it a couple hundred times. It's driving me crazy! But I still love this card anyway:


I'm playing along in the Moxie Fab World horizontal sketch challenge and I'm linking up to Unity's Friends with Flair this week. I made the sentiment in Word and printed it before I misted the page. I love how it looks like the measles (not that I love the measles). I doodled underneath the sentiment...I thought it worked with the kiddo theme.

Does anyone else remember giving each other cootie shots in school? We had very elaborate, multi-step cootie shots that eventually progressed to warming up and cooling down the arm after the shots. Anyone else do that? Anyhoo, I thought the stamp worked well for a get well card. Here's a close-up:



This cootie shot stamp is from Unity's Middle School Madness set. I don't think the set is available anymore, which is a shame...it's a hilarious set!

Thanks for looking! Have a great weekend!

Here's the scoop:
Cardstock: (Vintage Cream) PTI
Patterned Paper: (12 Days of Christmas) My Mind's Eye; (not sure of the collection) Echo Park
Ink: (Cough Syrup) Jenni Bowlin; (mist) Tattered Angels
Font: (2 Peas Scrapbook) Two Peas in a Bucket
