Get Well Ellie

Saturday, 21 February 2009
As I've been feeling a bit poorly the last couple of days, what better card to make than a get well card! I've inked up one of the cute Ellie stamps from Stamposaurus that I got at Ally Pally last year and have watercoloured her with WHSmiths watercolour pencils. She's then been cut out with oval nestibilities and mounted onto one of my favourite Bazzill blues. Actually, all the blue cs on this card is by Bazzill! I've used my MS Lace Doily punch again to create a decorative strip, with a smaller layer of cs and finished off with some organza ribbon and gemstones. The base is just some pale blue cs mounted onto a white card blank.

As the card was looking a bit bare at he top, I added some sizzix photo corners and gem butterflies. The sentiment is by Woodware.

I'm undecided on whether the butterflies were a good thing to add, so I'd be grateful if you could let me know your thoughts.

You might have guessed that blue is one of my favourite colours, and that is largely due to my boys in the blue and white hoops of Reading!! I'm off to see them this afternoon with my dad, so may not get a chance to post another card today. It's a big game against Bristol City who are playing a bit better than we are at the moment. I just hope Doyler and Hunty remember to put their shooting boots on today!!

Hope you are enjoying this beautiful Saturday and thank you for any comments you may leave, they are gratefully appreciated.
