Hang in there

My mum recently had surgery on her back.  She's doing really well, but it's a long recovery, so I wanted to cheer her up a bit.
I have wanted this Mama Elephant "Up and away" stamp set for months and months!  But every time I looked, it was out of stock!  I finally managed to put it into my cart and purchase it without it going out of stock, and it arrived in the mail this week :)

I'm playing along with two challenges - MUSE card club (using the inspiration provided by the wonderfully talented Marion Vagg), and also with CASe this sketch.

  6. The background is so pretty and the colors of the balloons compliments it so much! Not to bright and not to pale, the perfect color intensity to make them pop. All the best to your mom, mine is having back surgery this fall so I'll find out what you've gone through in short order.
