Get Well !! with Flowers

Hello... I hope you are all doing ok today.... Here's a quick little Get Well Card.... it was very easy to put together as I've used a a pre-coloured image from LOTV -  Art Pad 3 - Wild Flowers... but I love how this card turned out.  Although I think it would be hard to go wrong with such a beautiful image and such pretty papers! I bought lots of the LOTV Taster packs... think they are a bargain!


Gems: (on butterfly) Anitas Gemstone Wheel 2mm

Oooh... I tried SO hard to resist buying some stitch edged squares/circles dies... I even bought a piercing tool and thought I'd prick holes around the edge for similar effect... well I set off around a square and got a quarter of the way and my hand was really hurting.... got halfway around and my hand was stuck like a claw!! ROFL... I thought how stupid am I ... go treat yourself to those stitched dies... so I did.... and I do love them... so now don't feel so bad for splurging!

Thanks for all your lovely comments... I really do appreciate you taking the time out to visit and comment! :-)
Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
Love and Hugs 
Edited for Corrections: Oops!! I said this was a Thank You Card... Duh! silly me... of course it's a Get Well Card !!!  Lol - think I might send this card to myself !! apologies for any mistakes in my posts or comments... I'm going through another rough patch with my health. 
 it's awful weather here today... sleet/ snow/wind all day! just glad I can stay in warm and cosy! :-)
Hope you all have a lovely Sunday!
Love Sue xx

Gorgeous card Sue, I have everything you have used on this card except the MB die but I do have the Lil'inkers version, love the way you have put this all together.
I also bought the taster packs, we must have the same good taste.
Have a great weekend.

Beautiful card Sue, lovely image and those stitched squares look really great. In answer to your comment yesterday, Lancaster Castle did used to be a prison up until 4 years ago, and it was a very interesting tour. Enjoy your weekend.

Hi Sue, yes the stitched dies are soooo worth it. It's amazing how that small detail completely transforms the finished look.

Sorry to read you are poorly, hope you start to feel better soon.

We are having awful weather here, wind,rain, snow, sleet and hail!!
