Wishing You Well.....

Happy Tuesday everyone!  What a cray day this has turned out to be... Work was beyond crazy, and of course all of these types of things happen on days when I have a million things to do.  Ohhhhh well....
That's the way the cookie crumbles, right?

I have a card to share with you all today.  I created this one for this weeks challenge over at Elphine House Australia's Challenge Blog.  Have you been and visited there lately?   If you haven't, you really should stop by.  The DT always does such beautiful work using the gorgeous stamps from Elphine House, designed by none other than Elisabeth Bell.    

Did You Know????  Did you know that Elphine House Australia challenges allow you to use Any Elisabeth Bell design for their challenges?  Yes it's true...  Even though our DT uses only Elphine House stamps, YOU are allowed to use any of them....  You can find her wonderful designs at any of these shops.

  • For my card this week, we were to create a "Get Well Wishes" sort of card.  This is the time of year we call "Cold & Flu Season".  So we thought it would be great to have some "Get Well" cards on hand for when we may need to send one off to a friend or family member. 

    I couldn't resist creating my own paper to go with this card.  Believe it or not, I have stamped that "Get Well" paper and colored each little thing I stamped, and I did it while watching a movie.  It was really quite a relaxing thing to do.  I used stamps that are from The Craft Lounge, that I bought a few years ago before I started getting into using more "Character" types of stamps...  I used some items from the "Running Sick" set, and the "Dr. Pea-nut" set. 

    I colored my paper with Copics, as well as my adorable little "Yummy Pudding" stamp from Elphine House Australia.  I know the name of the stamp says "pudding" but this stamp also works very well for a "Get Well" type of card.  I couldn't resist using her, she is truly adorable, isn't she?

    I thought that I would enter this one into these challenges.  After all, my card does fit, so why not?
