Please Feel Better Soon…

Hi again!  I’ve let my get well and thinking of you cards get a little low. So I decided to get a few done.  This is such a cute image and is one of the first that I ever purchased. It is from Di's Digital Challenge

It is colored with Prismacolors and Gamsol.  I’ve decorated it with several dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.  The paper is by Paper Studio, sold by the sheet.  I made the flower and topped it with a decorative button.  And the gems are by Reflections.

1st Explosion Box…

I thought this would be a fantastic project to give one of my best friend’s for their 50th anniversary; but I don’t think I’ll attempt it again.  It’s much more challenging than I thought. And it took me much longer than I thought it would take.  There will be several photos, so bear with me.

Some of the supplies I’ve used are:

Cheery Lynn dies
Digi – Mo’s
Papers from stash and open stock
Flowers and Gems by Recollections
Lace, starfish,and additional embellishments from miscellaneous sources. Pearl flower is by Basic Grey. Gold words by Paper Words.
