Hello fellow crafters!  I hope you had a great holiday season.  I have been off work for three weeks (one of the perks to being a teacher) and I’m not sure if I’m ready to go back yet. I do miss my kids, but sleeping in has been REALLY nice.

Today, I realized that I need to create some get-well cards; I have a family member who needs a feel-better card to cheer her up.  Sadly, with all the cards I’ve been making I still don’t have any get well cards.  I also noticed that I don’t have sympathy cards.  What’s a girl to do?  I went in search of challenges for inspiration, and I found the perfect sketch on Sunday Stamps.  Challenges are a great way to get some cards made – be sure to play along  🙂

Get Well card

I used a Cotton Candy Card Base, and Lagoon for the Mat.  I also “created” pattern paper by stamping the “feel better” sentiment from a hostess only stamp, Cuddly Salutations, randomly all over a piece of White Daisy Cardstock.  The stars are from the Great Job stamp set.  I used Close To My Heart’s scallop border punch to scallop the edge.  The small piece of pattern paper and the sticker are from a retired set called Lolly Doodle (I couldn’t resist the colorful and cheery pattern).  I also stamped the dog from Cuddly Salutations and used a clay Shin Han Marker to color him in.

Blending Tip: The blending marker can also be used to remove color for small details (like this cute puppy’s spots).

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Keep crafting!
