Get Well Soon WIPSO

Poor Annie has a poorly eye and was feeling pretty rubbish when I last spoke to her Wednesday night and Thursday morning, so I made her a little card and put loads of hugs inside the envelope... all she has to do is waft it about to make sure all the hugs come out and get to her.

I was kindly sent some images of poorly HM by our blogging friend Brenda Butler - who's on a grand tour of the UK at the moment visiting family.  I've missed her blog posts.

Anyway, this is the card I did for Annie.  She's all wrapped as snug as a bug in the softest of fleece blankets, while Jo (Twiglet) gives her some get well soon medicine - made with special ingredients - love, hugs and kisses and a great big measure of TLC....

All background papers are from a collection I downloaded for free from Summer Driggs - a collection called 'Owl always love spring' - apart from the pink paper that I have punched with an MS border - which is from the Pink Petticoat CD collection called 'just an old fashioned girl' (some really gorgeous papers on that CD).

Image (coloured with promarkers) and sentiment (computer generated) both cut using nesties labels 4.  The flower in the top right is made using a Marianne Design Creatables flower die - set LR0110.  I have all three of the flower sets but tend to use this one.  The two smalller flowers in the centre of the large flower are punches. Gem finishes it off. More gems on the bottom on the border to finish off - all from stash.  All distressing on the elements of the card has been done using the Versamagic Dew Drop Chalk Inks.  The base card is A6 in size and is cream hammered card stock.

I knew exactly what I was going to do when I got my mind to it... the layout evolved (again) - but the image was a defo...  I really should start looking at layouts and sketches - would make life so much easier.

Anyway - hope my little card brings a happy smile to Annie and that she is feeling a bit better soon.  Big hugs Annie, my special friend!!!

  10. This is lovely Paula, and sometimes a handmade card can be as good as a shot of medicine - it's that feeling of knowing that someone really cares.

  15. What a cute card. The eyedropper is precious. Glad you are with us at Phindy's Place and hope to see you around at some of the other challenges too. Amazing how many of us have gotten into crafting when dealing with an extended illness. Mine was a series of blood clots in my lungs 5 yrs ago. Papercrafting is so much cheaper than therapy.

  16. Paula, there is an award for you on my blog.
