Feel Better Soon

It's anything but a card day at Catch The Bug.  It is the day I dread the most!  I had no clue what to do so I went to my stash closet and this little band-aid tin popped out at me so I though I'd make a little get well tin.  I am using Girl and Teddy Picture, I colored with copics and the paper is from recollections.  I think this would brighten up some little girls day if it was filled with yummy treats.
