Resting My Eyes

It's been awhile since I've played with a Teddy Bo image.  They are so dang cute, I should break them out more often but you all know there's so many challenges and so little time...  Excuses...Excuses...                                        An old friend of mine recently had a heart attack so I needed a card appropriate for a man.  This week's Teddy Bo challenge is for a masculine card.  Once in awhile things just work out, of course I wish my friend didn't have the heart attack but he did so a get well card is in order.

the inside

I am such an air head.  I put the card together so that the inside is upside down and backwards.  Every now and then in the stores you can find a card that opens on the left usually it's got some kind of joke sentiment about it.   I'm not sure if aggravating a heart attack patient is a good idea.  Over the next couple days I will be agonizing over whether I should cut it apart and mount it onto another card base or will he enjoy seeing that I'm still basically a ditz trying to appear like I have my act together.  Decisions... decisions...

Here's the deets: 
stamp - Teddy Bo "Just Resting My Eyes" digi
ink - hp printer
paper - Stampin' Up "Pacific Point" card stock and "Muirfield" dsp
miscellaneous - copics; buttons; floss; hemp cord; Martha Stewart tag punch; brads; machine stitching
