Good morning!! Hope you are all well this Thursday morning. Firstly I must say a Big Thank You for all your wonderful entries last week, they were all fab and SO cute! Don't forget to check if you were a Winner. And so onto this week's Challenge - I know you are all eager to know what the theme is with....
The lovely Shell is our hostess this week and she has chosen the fab theme of.....
'Get Well Soon'
So we want to see 'Get Well Soon' cards/creations. And I really must make some more 'Get Well' Cards as they are so good to have in - you never know when you'll need one to cheer somebody up!
We are sponsored this week by the fab Di's Digi's.
who are offering the winner a generous prize of $10 Voucher to spend in-store!!!
I went over to Di's Digis to have a look at the images and they are all gorgeous!! I chose 'Poorly Ted' and think he is such a cutie - he would cheer up anybody feeling poorly!
The background paper is another fab freebie from Bearly Mine Designs. It looks quite a simple card doesn't it. But boy did this card give me some grief!! I did it a couple of weekends ago and my colouring mojo had disappeared completely. So nearly all images ended up in the bin!! I managed to salvage this one but then made a mess of his little toy rabbit!! So, at my wits end, I paper-pieced a new one over the top! hee hee. It felt like cheating but I'd really had enough!! and quite like it anyway. His quilt is also paper-pieced to match the paper.
I've coloured the image with Copics and Flexmarkers. The gorgeous little Green Dew Drops were part of some Candy that I won from my friend and Teamie Laurie and as soon as I started this card I knew they'd be perfect. Anyway, I'm quite pleased with how it came out in the end!!! I think it's come out quite a masculine card. I wanted it to be cute but suitable for a male or female.
I do hope you can hop on over to MAWTT for more details of the Challenge and to look at my Teamies wonderful 'Get Well' creations - they are all stunning!!

I feel a lot better than the other day, at least my sickness has gone off. I've been taking some time out to look at the 1911 Census to see if I can find anything more on my ancestors. I don't know who transcribed it though. One of my ancestors is down as having the Occupation of 'Shap Assistant Retard' !!!! Poor lady - of course she is Shop Assistant Retired!! LOL
Not long until the weekend!
