Daisy Shaker

Speedy Recovery

Hi there :)  A friend of mine finally went in for her long awaited knee surgery, so I had to make a special card for her.  Her favorite color is orange, and fave flowers are gerbera daisies.  I’ve had this stamp set from Inkadinkadoo for a looooong time, and have never used it, so figured it would be perfect for this occasion!  I also thought it would be perfect to make a shaker card with, as I haven’t made one for ages, and it would give her something to play with while she recuperated on her couch, lol.  I used the bigger daisy from the set to stamp a background, and the frame to make the shaker part.  I colored everything in with my Prismacolor pencils, then assembled it, using a computer generated sentiment, some gel pen accents, a piece of turquoise ribbon, and some sequins and pearls for the shaker part.  She loved it, calling it her get well fidget spinner, lol.  I’m happy to say that she is a quick healer, and is moving around already :)

I’d like to enter this in the following challenges:

Feeling Crappy

Feeling C….y

Hi there!! As we ease into February, we also have a new ATG challenge at Creative Fingers for the next 2 weeks.  We have a regular sponsor, the fabulous Rick St. Dennis! :)

There is soooo much to choose from at his store, that it’s more than worth your while to enter for a chance to win one of his fantastic images!

Feeling CrappyI was in a “mood” when I got this stamp…..you can only guess what kind!! Lol!  The mood passed, so I decided to make a Get Well card.  The inside of this card says “…..that you’re feeling crappy”.  I printed the image onto kraft paper, and colored it with my Prismacolor pencils.  The sentiment was printed at the same time as the image.  I wanted “something” to embellish it, and came up with a roll of toilet paper, rather than ribbon or bling :)  I cut a strip of paper, ran it through with my perforating blade to make the squares, then rolled it up.  I tore a few sheets off….just because :)  Hopefully this card will elicit a smile from the recipient!
