Get Well Card


Good Morning! I am so happy that is is Friday! I am normally off on Fridays and can spend the day in my craft room, but we've been kind of busy so I am working today. I needed to make a get well card for my Aunt. She was in the hospital a week or so ago. She is home now and feeling much better but I wanted to send her a card to let her know I was thinking about her. A while back when I was visiting home, I had brought my Copics and a bunch of images that I had stamped. She is into scrapbooking, but not cardmaking or stamping. She watched what I was doing for a few minutes and I asked if she wanted to join me. Well, you know how addicting Copics are so you can guess the rest of the story! We colored for most of the afternoon. After I left she went to Hobby Lobby and bought her first ones. Then the next week she bought a couple of more. Then she ordered a set or two. Then my Uncle called just to "thank me" for getting her hooked on stamping, markers and making cards. She still spends most of her time scrapping, but likes to color too. The Magnolia images are her favorite so I knew that is what I had to use to make her a card. It is rainy and gloomy here so getting a great picture was just not happening. Everything is colored with Copics, paper is DCWV, lace and pearls are from my stash. Thanks for visiting with me today!

Your progressive story of your aunt's new found addiction, thanks to you, made me laugh! Not easy today because I had a cold, so it was a bright spot! Cute card too, you are rockin' the copics. I personally like to believe the coloring therapy you provided for your aunt helped her recover that much more quickly!

Such a pretty card! Those Magnolia images are so sweet, too. I'm sure your Aunt loved it! Sounds like you two had a fun time creating, too. How funny that you got her hooked on Copics! Those little buggers are addicting and she had a great teacher to show her how to use them. :)
