Under the Weather

This week's Tanda Teaser is a challenge to make a get well card. I thought I'd make one to keep in my box of cards so I went for a unisex approach since I won't know who it's for until I need it!



I've always felt a bit odd about the phrase "Get well soon" - it sounds a bit like a command, I guess! So I used two sentiment stamps from the same set here. One is the single word 'Wishes' and I didn't ink the final word of "Get well soon" before I stamped.

Supplies: Stampin up! Gorgeous Grapevine, sentiments from a HOTP set, Whispers inks (Savoy Green, Sugarloaf Green, Rio Purple, Violet), Tim Holtz Distress inks (Antique Linen, Tea Dye), Clearsnap Fluid chalk ink (Dark Brown), linen texture paper.

Thanks for dropping by - hope none of you are feeling under the weather yourselves!

I really like this card. It kind of says get well there's a glass of wine and girlie chat when your up and about again which I know I would appreciate because I know a glass of wine or two and the girls can in general turn in to a real hoot which in turn is a great pick me up.

I do really like the whole look of the card and the colours. xx

I love this - the colours are fab and that stamp set looks really useful! Thanks for doing the challenge this week Joanne!

By the way - I went for the Woodgrain background at Cornish heritage amongst other things!

This is really pretty! I love the texture of the paper... almost gives the stamped image the feel of a vintage paper card.

You are sooooooo clever! I too hate command sentiments, especially when the sick one doesn't have a choice of sooner or later. Thanks for the inspiration.
