Sending Healing Thoughts from Afar

Tonight's card is going to a friend's mom that needs some support from afar right now. She can't accept food or flowers at the hospital because of the risk they pose to her current condition. Fortunately, cards will make it past the hospital guards. ;) I used this as an opportunity to break out my pack of American Crafts City Park paper because it's so bright and cheerful. I tried to incorporate as many personal things as I could.
  • She's an arborist so the tree fits.
  • I know she likes pink because during my last visit, her toes were painted with a bright shade of pink nail polish
  • The tree was a stamp that her daughter (my friend) got me for my birthday last year.
Now I have to figure out what to write on the inside. It's easy for me write cards for the happy times, but so tough to find the write words when times are tough. Can someone figure out how to send hugs? Some genius out there needs to get on that, mmmkay?

Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Chestnut Roan, Prussian Blue, Warm Green. StazOn in Cherry Pink
Paper: American Crafts- City Park (green and floral), American Crafts Specialty Paper in Pearl
