Get Well Wishes

A dear friend of mine had surgery on Wednesday. Everything went well and I believe she is back home now. I'm giving her some time to recuperate before I go visit her but I am sending her this get well card. This was a very fun and easy card to make. Most cards with decorative paper backgrounds are pretty quick cards to do. Most of the work is done for you!!! Can't ask for more than that. Ok, you can ask but are you going to get it????

The image here is from the Stampin' Up! "Fun & Fast Notes" set. This is a pretty fun set, it covers most of the events one would encounter. Plus you can improvise on some of these too. Tape or mask off the words on this cute flower pot and you can use this for a Birthday, Thinking of You, Sympathy or Mother's Day card. All those from just one stamp. Such a deal!!!

I stamped this image on watercolor paper and used the "Watercolor Wonder" watercolor crayons to color it in. I just LOVE those crayons and they are going to last a LONG time. Trust me on that one. The gals who come here to stamp use them and I use them a LOT and they hardly look used. A few of them you can spot as my favorite colors but for the most part they still have LOTS of miles on them. Now I bought my set when you had to purchase them in the one long tin instead of the color groups they have them in now. I REALLY want them in the smaller tins but since these have so many more miles on them I can't justify buying the smaller containers. Oh well. Maybe if I start to color everything with them I'd be able to use them up in about 10 years!!! LOL They are fun and easy to work with. The colors here blended well with the colors of the decorative papers. The papers have the newer "in" colors and there are no "in" colors in the crayons. But you can make certain colors work in with the new ones, as you can see here.

The layout is just a little different than last Wednesday's Sketch Challenge. The last layer is more centered and a bit larger. Centering made the upper part more exposed but I filled it in with ribbon and then I noticed that there was still a space just big enough to require something!! I wanted to keep this card an all Stampin' Up! product card so I decided to go with Chocolate Chip 1/4" round punches. I glued them in place. I was going to put brads there. And if you were to remove the final top layer you could see where I made the holes for brads. It's great when you can hide your mistakes or experiments. I like to call them experiments rather than mistakes!!!! Me makes mistakes???? LOL

The decorative paper here is from the new mini catalog to be released on March 1st. It's called "Afternoon Tea." The papers in it are SO sweet looking. They kind of remind me of Grandma's house!!!
