Humorous Pop Out of Bed Card

Spritz, spritz, wipe, wipe… This post has been thoroughly sanitized with bleach and I know you’re staying 6 feet away, so we’re all safe. : ) I know we all need some humor to keep us sane in these stressful times, so I thought I’d share this cad I made last year to cheer up my dad as he started feeling the effects of the chemo….

Hahahaha! Both he and mom got a kick out of it.

Gotta love that exhausted rooster!

Googly eyes on the ‘toast’ and a nice enamel toaster add to the fun:

I love putting something funny in a delicate and delightful frame….

Supplies:

  • Art Impressions Fainted Chicken
  • Spellbinders Romancing the Swirl Ringlet Round die by Becca Feeken
  • Spellbinders Toast with Jam and Bread stamp and die set by Debi Adams

I hope you got a chuckle out of this sweet card! Since we don’t sleep in toasters and half of us are supposed to be staying in… no need to pop out of bed, ok?!

Take care!

Update on dad: Thanks to all of you who have been e-mailing your well-wishes while he has been getting chemo for pancreatic cancer these past 4 months! They did the preliminary set-up MRI and CTs at UM Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center Thursday. They hope to be up and running with the new MRIdian Linac machine by April 8, and afterward they will schedule his 5 days of radiation… barring further interference from the coronavirus. They’ve changed it so that only the patient can go into the hospital and all have to have their temperatures taken and maintain social distancing except the medical personnel treating him, so we feel fairly confident as they’re not near where the sick patients are. We were going to stay down in Miami during his treatments, as traffic is usually too thick and too exhausting for any of us to handle driving back and forth 5 days in a row. But with over 2000 of Florida’s 4000 COVID-19 cases here in South Florida, they’ve shut down all but essential business (and his treatments are essential) so traffic is MUCH lighter, cutting the drive down to an hour. I’ll probably go stay at their place and we’ll drive back and forth each day… that’ll be better anyway, since mom and I also have weak immune systems. Eight weeks after the radiation they will reassess his progress. Thank you again for your kind concern!!

 

Set of Humorous Art Impressions ICU Step Cards

Greetings, crafty peeps! Unfortunately, it’s that time of the year when folks are getting sick and ending up in the hospital. I started this set a while back and kept needing to send off a card, so I couldn’t get the complete finished set in a picture. Here are most of them… almost finished… right before I sent off the second one:

They just make me smile!! Hope they do the same for the recipients!

First, I colored the couples up, wanting to be able to choose from a rainbow of ladies with different colored hair. Next time I want to add in some olive and dark skinned ladies, too.

Then I added some glossy accents to the eyes, lips & earrings, and to the purse and shoes for a patent leather look.

Next, I matched each lady up with a matching cardstock for the step card base and found some decorative paper to match for the background. Then I sewed the ‘curtain’ to a piece of cardstock and attached everything to the card, added the heartbeat cutout and sentiment and the front of the card was done:

Here’s a side view:

On the back, where the heart is (on this particular step card die), I added the sentiment: “Hope you’ll soon be fully re-covered!” and one of the left-over hearts from the heartbeat die cut. The envelope says: “Sending a little laughter… it’s the BEST medicine!”
