Sunday Snippets - Get Well Card

Evening Folks

I hope you've had an enjoyable weekend. Ours has been okay but for a couple of things. First, our car failed it's MOT on Friday and the bill to repair it is going to be rather hefty :(  Second, well, you can see why below.

For consolation, I took refuge in the craft room and after finishing a couple of sewing projects I made this little get well card for my teenage grandson, Alun, who became ill on Friday ... Friday was an all round bad day here ... and has, on doctor's orders, had to stay in bed for 72 hours!
One for Pixie's Sunday Snippets - Week 151. The watercolour piece was leftover from a play practice session I had recently. This was my attempt to create, using watercolours and a brush, the same effect as can be had using a certain Stampin' Up stamp that is very popular at this time! I think the sentiment stamp (Inkadinkado) is very apt and one that Alun will appreciate :)
The washi tape butterfly trim is from stash and the green matting and layering came from the snippet pile.
Alun is a dedicated Celtic football fan so green was the obvious choice and luckily I found this green card base tucked away in a drawer.
And here's the patient himself. He has apparently had a bad reaction to a stomach bug. Happily, I can report that he is on the mend now and will be back to normal, and school, very soon.

I'm nipping off now to watch the Strictly results show - can't wait to see who is in the dance-off at Blackpool.

I wish you a lovely evening.

Happy Crafting,

Elizabeth,
Praying for better days ahead for you and your family.
Sweet card and I like the washi tape you used too. I have a few rolls. I need to see where I can use it on my cards. So far I have just used it on my envelopes.
Have a lovely Sunday.
Blessings : )

Hi Elizabeth, hope your grandson will be back on his feet again very soon. Your lovely card will sure help to sheer him up. For tomorrow, have a nice new week and hopefully better than last friday. Bye, Veerle x

A great card for your grandson. Glad he is recovering. x

Well you had me fooled Elizabeth! I truly thought you'd gone and bought the Stampin' Up 'Work of Art' stamp set! Very clever watercolouring there! Super words that would make anyone smile too! Hoping Alun is recovering fast - and that your car is also fixed ASAP there's always something isn't there :(

Hugs

Great get well card. Hope the patient improves soon.

Cars are such a nuisance when they need repair aren't they?

Hugs, Sarn xxx

I'm sure Alun really appreciated the card Elizabeth. Great to read he is now on the mend.

A fab card, Elizabeth! Hope your grandson is well on the mend now! 72 hours in bed would be much easier for us to accept than him I think!
