Need some TLC?

Hi, how are you doing?
I've really not been feeling very well since the weekend, and haven't had the energy to do very much of anything....are you feelin' sorry for me yet? :)
My grandchildren are being raised to know how to share, and they do........which is how I got the stinkin' cold and sore throat!

Anyway, I did manage to drag myself into my craft room, yesterday ;D and created this card for somebody who has recently had a HUGE operation, and is now on the road to recovery....just a little "get well quicker" card........

I used scraps of paper from my still HUGE to make loads more cards before I even make a dent in it, lol......did a little handstitching on the blue spotty.....added some lovely green ric-rac.....coloured the little freebie nursie with Promarkers.....

used another freebie for the sentiment, which I lightly coloured (the white background looked too stark).....did more handstitching around the sentiment (so relaxing to do this)......

and added three little buttons.....and she's ready to send off to the invalid!
D'ya like the sentiment?  Makes you think......mmmmmm......don't you agree?

Well, I'm hoping to get some crafting time tomorrow, but I'm not going to hold my house guests, which I'll tell you more about, later :)

I'm  entering this card here Anything Goes

and here Spots, Stripes, Dots

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. AM, love this card! and you talk about my colouring...pffft! Think you're way better! Awesome sentiment, and oh so true. Hope the invalid likes it else they'll be looking for an extended stay in hospital :) Hope the cold dissapears soon, darn grandkids need to be taught how to be selfish for a change :)
