I made this card for Sarah Moore, who has broken her foot … in TWO places!!! How awful!!! 😦 If you get a chance, go over and wish her well. πŸ˜€daisy-get-well

My inspiration came from 3 places today. First the Sketch Challenge on the Planet – SK031409 (hosted by Tammy YaHoo!). Second, from Color Throwdown #33 – CTD33 and third, from Sarah’s foot cast! Sarah’s cast is bound to make anyone smile!!! πŸ˜€

I sure hope you mend quickly, Sarah ... and aren’t going too crazy with not being able to drive!!!! πŸ˜‰
