Feel Better

A couple of people I know needed a little perking up after recent surgeries.  I have a small pile of unfinished card elements on my work table and decided to put some of them to use.  On this first one I had used this beautiful stamp gifted to me by my blogging friend Sabrina.  I apologize as my photo did not seem as dark when I edited it.  But don't you think it came out nice?  I stamped the image in Crumb Cake ink and then used markers to "watercolor" it. 
This giraffe stamp is from Unity and it comes with a different sentiment that I masked out.  I used a SU sentiment on the outside and inside which I thought fit it well.

Summer is really flying by and there's so much more I want to accomplish. 


  1. The malls are starting to display fall clothes! Lovely thoughtful get well cards today.

  2. The bird house card is sweet but the giraffe one made me smile. And you're so right - the summer ALWAYS flies by far too fast. Going-Back-To-School sales have already been on here for several weeks, which makes me really feel sad.

  3. Oh wow! I love the 'soft subtle' tones on the top card, just so pretty!!
    The giraffes are great! Oh to have a nice long neck like that! I love the colours you used, so pretty and everything matches!

  4. I thought I had stopped to comment here, because I certainly remember thinking what a fabulous job you did colouring that birdhouse stamp. But maybe I was on the bus and meant to comment when I got home and had the computer on. The giraffes would make anyone smile even without that sentiment - and the cork goes with them so well.

    Yes, the summer has gone by far too quickly. I can't believe how many leaves I am already seeing on the ground here.


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
