A Little Pickup

One thing about surfing stampers' blogs is all the cool people you "meet". One of those is Tammy, over at Stamp Happy. I think her personality probably matches her blog name! Anyway, she has offered a challenge and you can see it and her blog here. I needed a get well card today so I thought I would do one to fulfill the challenge. My husband is self-employed and has his health insurance through the VA. I have "retired", so I don't have any insurance. Through some reading in Christian publications, I found out about Samaritan Ministries. It is not an insurance company, but a company that helps other Christians share their medical needs. I have a monthly payment, but instead of going to a mega-insurance company, it is sent directly to a person or family who currently has a medical need. It is a really neat concept; if you or someone you know could benefit from this, please check their website. So my monthly share was due and I wanted to send a card with some encouraging words along with my check. Here's my card, I hope you like it! I turned Tammy's sketch sideways to better accommodate my image and I used some hoarded jumbo eyelets!! Now I'm off to send my card!
Stamps: Loads of Love, Loads of Love Accessories, Dotted Lines Jumbo Wheel
Paper: River Rock, Confetti White, Ruby Red, Night of Navy, Tim Holtz License Plates
Ink: Stazon, Creamy Caramel
Acc: Aquapainters, WC Crayons, Nestabilities, Jumbo Pewter Eyelets, Pewter HPH, Cropadile

Wow, this is too, too cute! I LOVE the license plates, and the sketch looks really neat turned on it's side! That's not something I often remember to do! Thank you so much for playing along, and thanks also for sharing the Samaritan Fund story! That is such a wonderful program! :) Have a great weekend!
