Good morning dear friends. I hope you’ve all had a great weekend. The weather here was surprisingly good and it’s supposed to be ok for the next few days too. Unfortunately my dad was admitted to hospital yesterday as he has possible heart failure and fluid on his lungs. To be honest he hasn’t been feeling brilliant since his hip replacement (which ironically went fine, no pain etc) but we’ve all been saying he would soon pick up once he was a bit more mobile. As I said unfortunately he hasn’t and my mother took the decision to take him to A&E yesterday for a second opinion (he has been back and forth to the GP without much improvement). I will update you tomorrow once I have spoken to the docs and have a better idea of the plan of care.
Onto the reason you are here. We have a brand new challenge over at stamp with fun challenge today and this week the theme is “get well soon”. Now if I had known my dad would be in hospital I would have made a male version but sadly I made a female get well card – typical eh? Here is my card:
I have used a super cute image from Bee Crafty called ‘bear get well soon’ and coloured it with my promarkers, although some of my brown promarkers decided to run out just as I was colouring my bear so it is a bit patchy. The papers are my minds eye ‘quite contrary’ and the die cut butterfly is a sizzix sizzlit.
The rest of the design team have created amazing samples once again this week, so please pop over and check them out. We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
