Well Wishing

My aunt fell and broke her leg last week and now she has to be in a nursing home for a couple of weeks until she can learn to handle herself better to get around. Poor thing. SO I thought I'd make her a get well card. I like the card but I'm not sure if she'd take offense at the pig part of the card. I'm going to have to think about this a bit and maybe go with something that has flowers in it. You can never offend anyone with flowers. Unless they are poisonous I suppose!!! LOL

I made this card using the new decorative papers. I still have a lot left from the 6" x 6" pack I got earlier this year. I NEED to start using up some of my supplies. Especially before they retire. Well, that's the plan anyway. I'm sure all of you use up your supplies and don't hoard them!!! I was thinking I was hoarding the chipboard letters but I discovered I really don't have much of a use for them (yet). I'm sure, after they retire I will come up with something SO great and fun that I'd wished I'd stocked up on them!!! LOL And then there are times I've stocked up on things and guess what? I'm still sitting here with my stash!!! LOL Hit and miss.

I also used the watercolor crayons and watercolor paper on this card. I'm finding the watercolor paper to be more and more of an asset when I stamp. I love that the paper doesn't warp or wear as I work or rework an area. And if you go outside the line a little on watercolor paper you can come back to that spot with a clean blender pen and clean up that area. It has worked for most colors for me. I feel that I have barely touches the surface with the uses of watercolor paper and as I discover them I will share them with you!
I thank you all for stopping by,
Wanda

You may ask your mother if she thinks this card will offend your aunt. Sometimes people of the same generation see things the same way. Sometimes a person's view is based on their age or gender. Good idea to be cautious! Let us know what you decide! Almost forgot, cute card!! I wouldn't take offense. :)
