Thank You Beary Much!

Thank you for your kind get well wishes. I've been a little slow in getting into creating projects to post since I'm having a hard time standing up without feeling pain. I have to rest during most of the day and at night I feel so antsy from not doing anything that I have to create something. So now, I'm sitting at my work table trying to create and for those who know me, know that I prefer to stand while working but that has not been happening since my boo boo. I'm still waiting for this air cast to be fitted for my foot so I can go back to work! The doctor wants me to use this so I won't make it worse. Just waiting for the swelling to go down so the tissue can heal. Sounds crazy huh!
Anyhoo, tonight, I decided to create a card using my new build-a-bear Sizzix Bigz die (#117977 $23.95). Wini had cut some out for me in different shades of brown. I'm using the creamy caramel one. I also used the Beary Essential Bigz die (#117978 $23.95). I cut her blouse out using the DP called Kaleidoscope. They are such pretty colors! (#115680 $9.95). The Melon Mambo CS matched perfectly for her skirt and shoes. BTW, the background paper used for this card is also from the Kaleidoscope paper pack and the main card is Barely Banana.
Other supplies used: Elegant Thank You (#114484 $8.95), wide oval punch #112082 $15.95, Eyelet border punch #113692 $15.95, Pumpkin Pie CS, Regal Rose grosgrain ribbon (I didn't realize that this is no longer in the catalog! boo hoo!) Here's what the inside looks like. Can you tell that I tried a new size for my card? This card is measured at 4 1/4" X 9 1/4" and can fit in a #10 envelope.
I stamped the sentiment Much Appreciated from the set with the same name (and it is also retired! oops!) The flower came from a set called Garden Greetings, which is not shown in the catalog, but is available and is on the dormant list.
Thank you for your visit today, I appreciate your visits and your comments too!

Teri, I am sorry that your ankle is in so much pain. I am praying that the pain at least will go away soon. I am also praying that your ankle is able to heal quickly.
What a cute card using the build a bear die. I have seen some very cute ideas using this dies. I can't wait to get to use mine.
I hope that your day is not too boring since you are not able to walk around much. This gives you more time to stamp right. :)
