Get Well Card

My mother fell Monday and broke her hip. Life has been a blur and pretty stressful since then. She is going to a nursing home Monday for rehab. I made her a special card to remind her how much she is loved. I call these my "quilt" cards made using my inchie punch. Quilts take a lot of time and much love goes into the making of each one; they are a "blanket of love". Mom has made a few quilts and will appreciate it.

When I get stressed, I like to make cards to focus my energies on something positive. The process of making a special sympathy card helps me recall the memories of that individual's life as well as grieve for the loss. What do you do to deal with stress?
