Hugs - Get Well Soon

Edit to add: this card is sold. Thank you Karen J.!
Hello and happy Saturday... o-m-g.. i don't know when it was the last time that i was able to be in bed until 10:30 :-) My card uses one of my all time favorite Magnolia Tilda images. I have used her so often on my cards - she is just special to me. his was the first card i started to practice with the Warm Grey Copic markers to color hair dark. The card was inspired by the wonderful new "My Mind's Eye" Designer papers - this one is called Bloom and Grow.

Somebody told me once that there are way to less "Get well" cards made and i agree.. so i looked through all the wonderful Sentiment and image printable stamp sets that Regina's Cutting Cafe has to offer and surly enough there are many to find. Since my card is sized 6.5 x 5 3/4 i went with the 1" circular Sentiment. On the inside i used the new fancy Nestabilitie shapes that i added to my Copic order with 7 Kids College fund. Love those - they have the perfect size to add a Magnolia inside or a sentiment plus some own writing.

Stamps: Magnolia Tilda and Sentiment: Regina's Cutting Cafe
Papers/Ink: My Minds Eye, Tangerine Tango and Neenah Ultrasmooth White and Memento Ink
Embellishments/Coloring: Copic Sketch, Prima Marketing, Airbrushing, Stickles, Martha Stewart fond punch for leafs and Arched Lattice

Have a wonderful weekend hugs Claudia
