Feel Better Soon Big Bold Flower!

Hello my Crafty Friends!  Hope you are having a great day! A cold spell has returned of course after a big storm so not only lots of snow but frigid temperatures!  It's supposed to warm up to bearable temperatures tomorrow which it better as I am volunteering at the kids school for an outdoor festival de voyager activities (French Canadian winter fun!)  So it better be decent weather!

Today I have a get well card to share.  A friend was in a bad car accident so I made her a meal and sent along a get well card:



 I was really happy to get this woodblock feel better soon stamp as I have been needing a get well stamp for ages!  All new Hero Arts stamps on this card, tweed background and big bold flower too!  

I am feeling chatty so here's what's new with me:

Last night I planned a girls night with friends, we started the night with seeing this movie:



It was a great movie!  I actually had read the book just a few months ago and loved it!  Afterwards we went out to a restaurant and enjoyed girl talk!  Even though it was so cold we were all so glad to get out, see a good movie and enjoy time with friends!

Today on the drive home from playgroup all of a sudden I ended up in the median, I was lucky not to continue past into incoming traffic and thankfully stopped short and didn't hit the trees!  It really was the most scary thing and over so fast!  Called my SIL and she came and got us and we went got Chad who was able to drive it off the median.  Started to drive home and realized we had a flat!  The wheel had a nail in it (how would I get a nail in it on the corner non fixable in deep snow?) Also turns out the car has winter tires on it (just bought it in January) we didn't know, and would have kept driving it which wouldn't be safe at all when it's hot out.  So tomorrow 4 new tires on the car!  I've never been in an accident where I've hit another car, my accidents seem to involve me hitting the car against curbs and costing money and such although it's been a few years.  Sigh...

Can't leave you with that negative!  For the past two weeks I've been taking part in a squat challenge.  A friend posted on facebook who wants to do a squat challenge and before I even thought about it I said me!  Than I asked my friends and 8 of them (some crafty may be reading this) said yes too! Started at 50 for 4 days and going up 25, we are now on 150 and when we finish will be doing 200!  It's been great well until it hit 150 it was!  I plan to continue and do 75 to 100 a day.  :>  I find I really do it since you have to post done and knowing that they are doing it is having me do it too!

Well that's it for me!  I am off to do some squats and start on a wreath etsy order! Oh and I have to make a banana bread for the teachers...  :>  Kids are alseep so it's time for Chad and me to spend some time together!

Glad your car mishap wasn't serious, but this card will certainly cheer up your friend who was in a bad one! I like the pink and grey combo, very serene.
Good luck in the cold today! I'm sure it will be fun.

what a scary thing to happen with your car. I'm glad that you didn't hit anything or hurt yourself. It just scary though. Your card for your friend is awesome. Will cheer her up no end.
