Hello and much love to you all!  I hope this weekend found everyone well and having loads of crafting fun!

I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed visiting with some of you; I only wish I could get to all of you faster!!!  LOL!  Unfortunately,it's slow going, but I'm doing the best I can.  There are many of you, so it will take some time but I'm anticipating each visit.

My project today is a napkin-fold "Get Well" card with a bit of a twist.  I've been wanting to do this for some time, and I've finally gotten the time and opportunity.  So, let me present it before I tell you my twist on it:

This is my card open (above) with the sleeve removed that holds it together revealing the message inside.  I wanted this to be the first picture you see, to see if you could guess what the twist is on my card.  If you haven't figured it out..., wait, there's more!  This card also has a matching complimentary item that makes it a set:

So, what's in the little matcing bag?  Well, since it's a get well card, the bag holds some "not feeling so well" remedies, i.e. a personal size package of Kleenex, a pack of hot chocolate, a 2-pack aspirin package, and several tea bags.  How cute is that?!!!

Okay, ready for the spin on my box?  Instead of opening the way most napkin cards do, mine opens into a box!!!  Yes, a box!  Why?  Well to hold the get well remedies, of course!!! And, the fact that it is a get well card set which includes some remedies!!!

How bright and fun would this be by your bedside if you weren't feeling very well?!!!  LOL!!!

Before I leave, I thought you might like to see the card all folded up and tucked into it's sleeve:

I hope you like it!  It certainly was a lot of fun putting together!

Just so you know, I've got a few surprises in store for you, so stay tuned!!!

I'll be seeing you!
