Poor Edwin is Having a Bad Week!

I didn't know when I made this card yesterday that it was going to be of good use so soon. My DIL and I had to rush my son to the ER last night - much pain, fever, etc., etc.. We kept the vigil with him most of the night so I'm not exactly awake this am. He's okay now, luckily just a kidney  infection that should clear up soon. But it scared all of us for quite a time. His B'day is tomorrow and he definitely wasn't pleased with this early present! So I guess this card was timely, huh? Honestly, I'm not picking on Edwin, I'm really not. I promise to make him much happier with his next card.
I cut out all the pieces and put them back together on the Peony nestie. Used Basic Grey Green stack for background, cut branch and leaves w/Sizzix die and made the tag and bushel of apples with my new JustRite stamps. I love that I was able to cut the log from the BG textured card stock. Looks like a real log!

There's a lesson or two here, I think.
1. Always drink plenty of water
2. Never, never, never eat those little green apples!


  1. An excellent job on this Edwin and how very appropriate for your son! Hope he is better soon!

  2. oh fun Sue! I was a green apple kid! we had five apples trees in our yard and oh we loved green apples! lol Must've had an iron tummy back then! Super cute card!

  4. Poor Edwin. He really does look like has has a tummy ache. Great card.

  5. Ok, I shouldn't be laughing, really I shouldn't (because I am sooo glad that your son is ok) but I was reading along and then I saw poor Edwin with his tummy ache and I just couldn't stop myself! Again, I'm soooo glad everyone is better and this card is, indeed, perfect!!!

  6. Sue!!! Your card is perfect for your son. I´m sure he´ll love it and will have so much fun!!!
    I also hope he is better very soon!
