A Bright Get Well Card

I love bright and cute Get Well cards. They bring a smile... and this image also brings a smile. This weeks challenge at Cute Card Thursday is to use bright colors in making your card. Well check! I did that.


I love this image. I don't know who the maker is as it was sent to me by a very sweet friend. I colored it with my Koh-n-noor pencils and mineral spirits. I really love these pencils they are so vibrant! I still just wish they came in more than 24 colors. I high lighted with my white gel pen. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I colored first... then went to look for paper, I rarely do this, but was lucky how perfect is this piece of Sassafrass Lass paper? I have hoarded these papers for so long, love the scalloped edge. But I am getting better at using my stash. I matted the pattern paper with a bright blue before attaching to an orange card stock for the base. I matted the image with the same blue. My ribbon is from Heidi Grace, and the felt flower and leaves are from Creative Imaginations. The brads are also from Creative Imaginations how cool are they? They come with the matching ribbon tab. I doodled the edge of the card with both white gel pen and a blue Sakura glaze pen.





Tonight is a midnight crop at my LSS. Although with the Olympics on I haven't been getting to bed much earlier than that anyway. Hope you have something fun planned for your weekend. We have rain in the forecast, but that doesn't matter to me cuz I'll be cropping... and then Saturday I have a class at a different LSS. I haven't taught a class there before. I have done a Fiskar's training there and I know the owner, Hi Susan! But this will be my first "real" class. I hope they like my stuff - Oh and this is where I got the felt flowers... so I will be stocking up on more of those! I know everything revolves around my shopping. =)



Have a great Friday,

HUGS and-
