A Get Well Card!

Hope you are all well and managing to get a bit of crafty time to yourselves!
This card seemed to take me an age and was a little overdue for the recipient Mrs Wonka but i am pleased to say once received she loved it!
It was a little get well card for an operation she had not so long ago.
I have used a Pure innocence stamp set called Better get better , i thought it was rather cute, this also comes with a couple of sentiments (not the one on my card)
I have also used MFT border die Faux crochet and matching oval die.
The personalised banner was made using some letter beads which i have had for yonks and a lovely little stamp i got for christmas from Caz
I also decorated the inside for a change, it really makes it that extra special.
Have you any plans for the weekend? for some reason i keep forgetting it's a Bank Holiday probably because the weather is so pants!!!
I am in need of a new frock as i have a wedding to go to, i was searching today, i saw a few but none that will cover my "bingo wings!"
So back to the drawing board - I'm not really a frock person so this is proving somewhat difficult lol!!
Whatever you may be doing have fun - see you soon!

  2. Hiya Suz.
    The wedding I went to last year proved a problem to me too when it came to a dress...However I bought a sleevless one and a lovely jacket/shrug and it looked great. I left the jacket on all day too, because it was so light it looked more like a cardi, you could try that.
    Hey what a stunning card, love the sketch and the inside being decorated makes it sooooo special. Love it. Debbiexx

    lovely card, I'm not surprised that Mrs Wonka loved it.
    Hope you manage to find a frock, I'm not into frock's either now (funny that I used to love wearing them), old age does that to you I spose, I'm more for comfort nowadays lol.
