Get Well Card for my Niece
Well, I was minding my own business at work yesterday and had to go to one of the hospital wards and what a shock I got when I got out of the lifts - to see five members of my family. I thought that they must be there visiting someone until I noticed my 19 year old niece in a dressing gown. She'd been taken poorly on Saturday night and in the end had the emergency removal of her appendix on Sunday. All this on top of having a 4 month old baby to look after as well. She's hopefully coming out of hospital tomorrow so I shall go and see her when I am back at work tomorrow morning but thought I'd make her a card today to cheer her up. She's a girly-girl and likes her shopping so I used this cute Anya image and coloured her in with Copics/Promarkers and then added accents with Sakura Stardust clear pen. The backing papers are all from my stash of bits-and-pieces to be used up - I'll let you into a secret - I'm not sure why I even kept the striped pieces as it is two small bits and therefore there's no piece under the stamped image/mount - maybe I must have known that the Anyone for Anya? Challenge this week had a sketch but then A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge had the topic of "spots and stripes" so I thought these tiny pieces of striped paper matched the spotted paper. The card is finished off with a sentiment off the computer, gems and I have highlighted areas of the backing paper with the glittery Sakura Stardust clear pen. Hopefully it will cheer my nice up and she'll be on the mend very soon.
