Double Hip Replacement

It's been a wild ride with Mom and Kate in the hospital and the whole recovery process.  Thankfully, everyone is on the mend.  This is a card I made for my husband's aunt who had a double hip replacement.  I jointed the bear at the hips, giving him "new" hips, and his little legs move.  Just something fun for a fun loving aunt.



Supplies Used:
Stamps: MFT Friends Furever
Dies: MFT Spring Garden, Tall Grassy Edge, Grassy Hills, Stitched Cloud Edges
Copics: E30s, 29, R20, Y13, 15, 17, 35, 38, YR04
Inks:  Distress Ink Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Mermaid Lagoon, Broken China, Gathered Twigs, Ground Espresso
Other: Paper Studio Wood Grain embossing folder, computer generated sentiment

Thanks for coming over to visit!  I hope to be back out there commenting soon.  I hope you are having a great day!

  2. DH has had both hips and knees done, though not at the same time for any of them. Brave woman, your Auntie. I'm sure this will put a smile on her face, and I hope that her recovery goes well. That bear is so sweet, and the scene you've very gentle placed this little patient, is darling. She's going to love this! Bev
