Weather together with Bear hugs- Get well soon!

If you could only see my craft room! It looks like a bomb has hit it!!

I REALLY wanted to be a part of the amazing international highlights Kylie was having on her Crafty Kylie web page, so set my alarm to go very early this morning... 
Fortunately I KNEW what I was going to make. 
Ever since getting Weather Together stamp set, I have wanted to make this card. I wanted to see if the teaming of the bear character in Bear hugs and the umbrella in Weather Together went together. I Love Bear hugs. I've mentioned before I love the "dress up" quality of the stamp set..... It must be a throw back to my childhood when I remember having paper dolls and cutting out the outfits for them.... Did anyone else do that? 
Bear hiding from the storm....
I love giving get well cards. When you are sick, or laid up, and in pain, its wonderful knowing people care.
Last year I had to have emergency surgery, after it I wasn't able to do very much for a whole month.  the surgery was in my abdomen, and because of this I wasn't allowed to even hang washing. My gorgeous sister came every day to help out. She was just wonderful. I so appreciated her concern. 
So now if someone in my circle is unwell, even for a short time, I try to give a little card, and help out if I can. We have to look after one another don't we?

"wishing you brighter days"sentiment-
How lovely would it be to get this when you are sick?
