I C U - Get Well


I * C * U
haahaa
Get It?
The acronym ICU stands for Intensive Care Unit but I have also used it as a Play on Words for EYE SEE YOU since my funny little monster was affixed with a googley eye !!!
My father in law just underwent open heart surgery and will be spending a few days in the Hospital's Intensive Care Unit ( ICU ) so so I created this clever card in hopes of bringing a smile to his face.

This monster is the same one that I used on the post directly below this one. Here is a peek at the inside of my project where I have featured this stamp sets "Crankier Monster".
His fever must be really high to be flowing all those flames!!! The thermometer is from the Crafty Secrets "Feel Better" Sticker Sheet.
