Update and a card.

Good morning everyone. Hope all is well. It's already Thursday and I feel like it should be Monday. When I have a big departure from the norm, I'm lost for at least a week.
Well the surgery went well, bicep reattached. Had quite a bit of pain for a couple of days but that is getting better. Probably by the weekend he will be driving. Thank you for all your concern and sweet comments.
Now for the new card. This is a birthday card for a nephew. He's grown and out on his own but I think he still likes to get a special handmade card from me.
Here's the recipe:
Art Deco - duck on page 54 cut at 1.3 (love this duck)
Art Philosophy - square page 24 cut at 4.29 (loving this cart)
Give a Hoot - cattails cut at 3
It really is a simple card but I like it. The labels are just rectangles and I used the Stampin Up ticket corner punch on it. I won that punch from Wendy Cranston, thank you Wendy.
Thank you for spending time with me. Hope you like the card too.

Hugs and God bless. Stephanie
