  21. Cute image – beautiful card!
    When someone in my family is sick, I try to make some homemade chicken soup. Or, if they are feeling a little stressed/down, I bake some yummy chocolate chip cookies (the Toll House recipe is so delicious.) That always puts a big smile on my daughter’s face. 🙂

  22. Paper Smooches stamp sets are soooo cute aren’t they? I am sure this set is no exception. To cheer someone up you asked? Well a dear friend had some pregnancy issues. She ended up have her baby early and only weighing in at 1lb 14 oz and in the NICU. This weekend, I am baking dinner for her and her family, and watching her other three children for a few hours in order for her and her husband to go visit the baby. I only wish I could do more for them. They have a long road ahead of them. Your card is really adorable and these kind of cards really let them know that someone is thinking of them. Thanks for the giveaway chance.

  31. What a daring card. So fun to sent cut get well cards.

  34. AWWW…cute! Could be used for any age….great card!!

  40. I love to send cards when someone isn’t feeling well, or drop by with a small pick-me-up gift or meal if they live close by! Your card is just adorable!!

  42. Get well cards are always a nice way to cheer someone up who is under the weather and this stamp set is so cheery and whimsical it would make anyone smile. Along with a card made with love, a crock pot of yummy chicken tortilla soup is my favorite way to show someone I care.

  43. What an adorable card! I like to make people a special “food” item when they are under the weather–from fresh made cookies, hot tea or chicken soup. I also like to provide hot packs (if appropriate) or even a handmade card of encouragement if it’s a long term issue.

  44. What a cute card! Kim’s stamps are my favorites!

    My husband is chronically ill and has been for 10+ years, so I’m constantly around someone who doesn’t feel well. (I can’t imagine feeling sick for that long!) Anyway, I try to be upbeat and positive for him as much as I can. I ask him positive questions like “What was your favorite part of _____?” to get him to think positively too.

  45. Julie in Edmonds

    This would definitely cheer somebody up! So cute.

  46. I will try to turn the bad feeling or incident to something good. For instance, perhaps a downgrade of job title means you have less stress and concern where you can use that extra time to focus on personal interest.

  47. I give them a call or send a card. Either way I know it brightens their day.

  48. So sweet–love the colors!

  60. Hi Lori, this is a very cute card. I realized when looking at it that I don’t use purple very often. I guess I should pull some out and have a go of it. You always provide me with such inspiration.
    As far as cheering up sickies, I cook. Baked goods, scrambled eggs, whatever they want. If the problem is stomach related, I will do chores that the person is unable to do at that time. Have a lovely weekend.

  65. I LOVE love love that bear…I usually make someone a card if they aren’t 100%. Sadly I have to make way too many of those…

  66. Since I live 1000 miles from most of my family my favorite way to keep in touch and cheer them up is to make and send them cards….of course!

  67. Lori, this is adorable! What could possibly be cuter than a chubby bear nurse?

  68. What a cheerful card! It would certainly cheer me up to win this great set! When my guys are feeling under the weather . . . we dig out the Hercules cup that came in a Happy Meal YEARS ago . . . beverages from this cup always seems to get them back on their way to good health 🙂

  77. AWK!!! This little nurse bear is so cute I would almost get sick just to get a Get Well card with this image on it!!! SPeaking of which, my favorite thing to do to cheer sick people up is to make a handmade card and maybe little gift for them. People always feel better when they know others are thinking of them!

  78. I love your work. This is my first time visiting. I give a friend a hug if they need cheering up and sometimes a card. 🙂

  86. I love this set – it’s a sad thing that we need something like this, but when it’s so cute you wouldn’t feel too down using it! When my friend had to have her dog put down, I went over with some chocolate truffles which helped cheer her up a little.

  87. Super cute card..this made me burst out giggling! This card would be a winner of a get well care for certain. When friends or family are not feeling well, I find that a call to let them know I’m thinking of then, and offering to help out with a meal or even a cup of tea goes a long way!

  88. Your card is too cute–the bear is adorable. I like to make cards for people who are ill so that they know that I am thinking of them and that I care.

  90. Ack – so adorable! You can make anything into a nurse with that cute little hat!

  91. Chris R. from Iowa

    A handmade card or a home baked goodie is always a picker upper. Or, a good ol’ hug is appropriate. This would be such a great card for someone chronically ill even just to say you are thinking of them. I could see a group project from a church or scout group making this card and putting one on people’s food trays at a hospital, nursing home, hospice, etc. I think I will just have to try that – we have been considering a card ministry and this may be our first project! Can’t wait to see the rest! Thanks for the inspiration to get our group going!

  92. Homemade soup, a quilt to cuddle under and a good movie on DVD are the things I use to cheer up loved ones when they’re under the weather. I love your cute card, Lori – thanks so much for the chance to win one of these awesome stamp sets.

  96. Thanks for the chance to win. My way of cheering up one of my friends is to make them a sweet card and a basket of their favorite treats.

  102. I like to bake/feed people when they are not feeling well. I love your little nursing bear, and the machine stitching on your card. Maybe it was a childhood spent making paper dolls and their clothes, but dressing up/mixing stamp images like that is so much fun!
