Stamps by DRS Designs: Leonard's Sick Day Blues G1019, Cured Yet? sentiment, Easy Swirl Background H688. Cardstock: Cameo Coral, Ballet Blue, Certainly Celery, GP110 white. Ink: Memento black, Copics. Accessories: circle Nestabilities, Papertrey grosgrain ribbon, SU scallop border punch, Bella Baubles, mini prima, gemstone.

Poor Leo -- it looks like he's having a rough day! As lousy as he feels, this card and funny sentiment is sure to brighten a your under-the-weather recipient's day.

DRS Designs is sponsoring this week's challenge to create an altered item on the Charisma blog. Since we are on the tail end of a summer cold/bronchitis episode in our household I decided to create a treat to accompany Leo's card that would be appreciated by our 'sickies':

The complete tutorial for an altered peach tin can be viewed HERE. It's a great way to reuse common household items and surprise recipients who can't figure out just how you managed to 'can' such appropriate items. Hint: the trick is opening the can on the bottom, leaving the pop top in place, and then creating another bottom out of chipboard. Here's the top view:

Have a healthy day and be sure to stop by the Charisma blog to see amazing altered items!
