My PTI goodies came in the mail today and I started playing immediately. I've had an idea in mind since I saw the little monster stamp on Betsy's blog during the countdown. While he is a very cute monster, I thought he would also make an excellent "germ". I saw an idea like this some time ago using a set from Cornish Heritage Farms (I think) and a jar, but I don't remember who made the card. For my card, I put the monster in the jar from Friendship Jar and added the sentiment with my Doodlebug rub-ons.
Since this card would obviously be going to someone sick, I thought I would also make a little tissue holder to go with it. I was inspired by Betsy's felt monster and I have since been looking through some books for ideas. I found a book at Michael's that had a little felt tissue holder with eyes on it, and figured I could make my own pattern at home. I thought "he" also needed a mouth so I added that on. The turquoise and cream felt are PTI, but the red and black are just some that I had from years ago. You can so tell the difference in quality between PTI's felt and the other felt!
Here is a picture of the card and tissue holder together. I think this little gift would definitely bring a smile to someone's face!
