Morning all,

Hope your week is going well. Sadly, not going quite so well for a pal of mine who had to have some surgery last Thursday - I thought I would make her this card ... here's hoping it will have arrived by now and that she will be cheered by this card and starting to feel better.

  • Stampers Anonymous image and Chapel Road sentiment stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink
  • Alcohol markers in vanilla, red, poppy, saffron, apricot, senna and cool grey1 used to colour image

Ooh, that's a very elegant card! I like it very much - why should Get Well cards be mundane? That one certainly isn't and it's the one I'd buy in the shops.
Btw, your comment on Julia's post about not buying exercise equipment from night time TV really cracked me up, lol!!
