Our Buddy is on the Mend

On the 23rd of November, I had posted that I had a wonderful visit with my best friend Jacqui. She and her son Joel had come for the weekend. Joel hadn't been feeling well all week, but made the trip with his mom. He was pretty lethargic all weekend and after being seen by the Doctors earlier in the week it was suspected that he had a little bug.

When he continued to feel ill, another trip to the emerg led him to being admitted within a couple of days. He spent up until this past Friday in the Hospital, with his mom at his side. We were very worried about him and must say completely relieved to hear that he was able to return home this weekend. He is still not in top form and will likely be at home until after the Holidays, so we will continue to keep Joel, Jacqui, Joe and Jade in our thoughts and prayers.

Joel, like Jonathon is a fan of Riley, so I created this get well card for him. I received these very cool Vehicle images from my Friend Kristi. For the life of me, I can't remember the name of the company. I needed to find a Riley that would most easily fit into the cab. The snowman Riley sat at the right angle to do this.

Both the Taxi Cab and the Riley were coloured with Copics, Cut out and then I mounted Riley on dimensionals so that his antlers would pop out of the cab window. I thought this Cheery DP would be appropriate for this card. It's been kicking around in my cupboard for ages, but I never really found a theme that it would work for. I used the Swiss Dot Cuttlebug to create a base for the main image, adding some flower brads to mimic the flowers in the Ribbon.

Joel's card is on his way to him and I am hoping that he becomes stronger each day!



  1. who wouldn't love Riley ... and what wonderful DP.

  8. Ack!!! I LOVE this, Vicki!! What a FABULOUS idea - wonderfully done!!

  9. Ooh, I love that new Riley stamp!!! How sweet! It would be so perfect for a New York City page or for a Nez Rouge reminder... (This is a driving service they offer in Quebec during the Holidays, where someone drives you back home in your own car when you've had one too many drinks at the office party... Would you believe that the mascott is a reindeer?!) Oh, the possibilities!

    Love the colours on this one (I'm big on teal).



Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I hope you have a wonderful day and I very much appreciate your sweet comments!
