Spots, pox and wedding day polka dots

A coworker recently got to take an even earlier last day than she'd planned.

Thanks to chicken pox.

She contracted the dreaded disease of spots and dots and chalky topical creams shortly after her replacement was hired.

Her replacement who had never had chicken pox. So, goodbye to her one week early.

I hope she didn't have to use up sick time and therefore get cheated out of that final "extra" pay.

Anyhow, I made a card for her celebrating her pox! The background is lightly inked and stamped with bubble wrap that I brushed with Perfect Pearls.

The butterfly is made up of wings and a dot from some packages of pre-cut Grunge shapes that I inked and embossed with clear glitter powder.

The "SPOTS" text, stamped and embossed in black, is from a Close To My Heart set and the "seeing" text is from a ProvoCraft stamp.

My coworker, by the way, had to resign because she's getting married and moving to another country. I'm not sure of her wedding date, but I'm crossing my fingers that her pox cleared up before then.

Does any bride want to wear polka dots on her wedding day?
