Get Well Soon!

Both DGDs have been sick this week.  : (  This sparked some reminiscing between DH and myself about being sick when we were children.  It soon took on the tone of "three miles to school and back, through the snow, in bare feet" and we had to laugh!   Children were relegated to bed to rest and recuperate on spoonfuls of broth and glasses and glasses of Robinson's Lemon Barley water!   If you were lucky, you were permitted to read a book.   No TV, games, or apps to entertain and distract as you suffered!  

This image from the Imagine cart 'The Good Old Days!'  (Uh, right!)  popped in my head and I set out to make a get well card for the Bitten by the Bug 2 -  Get Well challenge.   You can see the DT's fabulous designs here.

I am not too comfortable with creating 'vintage' although I love the look.  Hopefully,  paper from MME and lots of inking helped with the look and feel.  (I seem to be on a yellow kick, don't I?)
The book comes from another image on the cart, and I played with the colors a bit as the original  was just too pink!  I had fun making this card and thank you for visiting with me today.   : ) Christine

Think Spring!

Around February 1st,  my sister calls me so that we can reassure each other that yes indeed,  Winter is on its way out,  and Spring is just around the corner!  It's a tradition.  : )

I thought that I'd send her a 'Think Spring!' card this year and use the opportunity to try out the pinwheel card from the Cricut Wild Card cartridge.   I remembered this cute image from the Imagine Enjoy the Seasons cart (one of my all time favorites) and by cutting away the snow from the windows, I was able to place a snowman looking in the windows so that I could enter the

FCCB Challenge # 194 Use a snowman

(Visit the FCCB blog here.  I was amazed at all the creative ways paper-crafters can use snowmen! )

Here's the front:-

And the inside.

Here's the pinwheel mechanism.  I think that next time I use this card, I will add a liner to conceal the brad.

Here's another one of the Spring images that appear in the thought bubble when you turn the pinwheel.  I have NO idea why the tree looks so yellow; it really is light green!

Thanks for visiting with me today.  : )  And the card is in the mail, Sister!
