I made this card for my mom as she was having a colonoscopy done. She has a great sense of humor so I wanted to make this card. When I first made it I did not put the bikini on it, just had it being a rear end with a bandaid covering the tender spot, along with a punched out circle under it. Well, DH and the kids thought it was *too* bad, so I decided to add the bikini on top that was liftable so you could see what was underneath. They liked this version much better, lol. I had to make my own template from seeing other cards on here, but think it turned out cute. I cut it out of blush blossom paper then sponged on some apricot appeal to give it more of a rear end look. After punching out the circles from card stock and gluing them down I used a regular bandaid we had around the house to cover it up. I stamped floral on the bikini area in craft red then clear embossed it to stand out. I scored it, then placed it on the rear end. I put small holes on either side of the bikini and tied in silver cording to give it more of a bikini look, rather then underwear. I wrote on the bottom part to lift if they dare so they knew the card lifted up.
On the inside I put, "Hope everything comes out all right, IN THE END!". She said she got a good laugh out of it..lol
I am not sure if I should post what I put underneath of the bikini as I am not sure if it is too "R" rated for SCS, as I know we have some younger kids that look around here too, I am going to get some opinions on that!

Hi there! I just love your card what a cute way to say something to someone who is having that done to them.
I know its not a fun thing to have done to you.
I hope all went well for your mom.
Do you have a pattern that you could share with me on how you made it. I would love to make a few for some of the family when they have do have this done to them. If you could email it to me that would sure be great of you.
And then you can show me what you put on it that you couldn't show here. Thanks so very much for any help you can give to me with this.
