Doctor's orders

I'm (very) slowly cleaning up my crafting area and finally getting around to putting stuff away that has been sitting on a particular work surface for a very, very long time.  Well, some of it is new stuff that I have gotten and just haven't had time to take care of and some of it is older, and older, and  . . .  well, you get the idea.  AND, while I'm putting stuff away, I'm actually trying to use it (I know, gasp!) first--which is part of why it is going to slowly.  So, the set I focused on the other day was "Mixed Messages" by Cardz TV and it has all these fabulous sentiments for all sorts of occasions.  One that caught my eye was the one I used on this card: "Doctor's orders . . . feel better soon!"  We have a man at our church that has been having a lot of health issues for quite some time and ended up in the hospital with surgery and all that goes along with it this past week.  I thought the sentiment would be perfect for making a card for him, and I remembered this adorable image that I have not used in a really long time.  It always makes me think that the bear and his little friends are sad, or perhaps not feeling well.  I've used it for get well cards before and thought it would work again this time.
I used some fun patterned papers to give it a "cheer you up" feel and finished it all off with some nuvo drops in autumn red and midnight blue.
