Get Well Card

A few things happened or got done last week that I need to catch up on here. I didn't post so that my blog candy post wouldn't get lost. Now that has been done and I am waiting to hear from the winner I can start posting all the other stuff that I let mount up. Starting with this Get well card. I have had news from back in Wales about a sick family member and a sick friend of the family so this coupled with my having just closed a Get Well card swap on Gabby's group prompted me to make this card. I actually used one of Gabby's really cool sketches that she has on the group for members to use.

The cardstock is Lovely Lilac and a mint green I found in a Michael's pack. The stamp set is Blooming Beautiful from the Stampin Up Occasions Mini. It is a lovely set. I couldn't resist it any longer and had to have it. The sentiment is from sincere salutations. I used my cuttlebug with the stylized flowers folder for the half circles at each end and I used my watercolor pencils on the image. I ticket punched the corners and added three black brads finish it. I mounted the image on dimensionals so it stood out a little.
Thanks for looking.

Hi Nicola,
You can actually do a sticky post in blogger, which means you can post new entries, but the blog candy entry would still stay at the top. I believe that can be done (as I've never tried it out) by changing the date of your blog candy. The date should be a future date (in this case, it could be the closing date of the candy giveaway). Then any posts that are posted before that date will be under the 'sticky' post. Hope I'm making sense :P

Sweet card!
