Get Well Soon

Hey there! Sorry this is posted a little later than usual, but I'm in full vacation mode! :) So, I'm checking in with you all and posting a card to share. First, I'd like to answer a few questions from this post. Some of you were interested in the stamp I used on the first card. It is by Waltzingmouse Stamps - faux fun circles. I die cut the circle, then stamped the circle label, then added the sticker for the sentiment. If you haven't checked out Claire's stamps yet, I highly recommend them, especially the nestie-friendly stamps if you're not sure where to start!

Yesterday, some of you answered correctly! Now, onto today's vacation hint!

Vacation Hint #2: The vacation location is in another continent where the climate is currently hot and sunny!

Thanks for visiting!
