Get well Soon ELLA! - second post today!!!

Ahhhhh - one of the girls at work has had her tonsils out - and had a horrible time of it, bless her!  So we made her some cards! YAY!  Her mother-in-law works at my son's school and got a thank you card in July - it is still on her fridge!!

 Ahhhhh - Josh chose this image - from Dustin Pike - this is the third time I have used this one and I still love it!


 This card was from Josh and Dexter (our library dragon!  Go check him out, his link is in the sidebar!)

And have just entered this into Stamping Vacation's challenge to include an animal with unusual or non-furry skin!
 Close up of flowers - cut these using my ecraft - and the little swish!  They are all from the standard design card that comes with the machine!  Used a glitter sakura and then used glossy accents over the top to make them look like gems!


 And took this picture to put inside the card to show Ella how to display it! 

Digi-doodles have a challenge this week to 3D it!
Paper Pretties would like to see an animal on the cards this week - hmmm is a dragon an animal????
Stamping Vacation want to see an animal you wouldnt want running through your house - well, if a dragon is an animal then I dont want it running through our house - not that this one looks like he could run anywhere!
Creative Card Crew would like to see flowers this week and the Sisterhood of Crafters want to see 3 flowers!
Incy Wincy have an anything goes challenge this time!


 And this is an image from Bugaboo!  I was SHOCKED to discover that you no longer have to eat jelly and ice-cream but rather toast - no kidding!  It gets the scabs to come off - errrghhhewww!

Bugaboo have an anything goes challenge this week - so thats cool! 
Other Lovelies - want us to use a digi image this time for their Thoughtful Thursdays Challenge



Would like to link BOTH of these cards up for Creative Inspiration's Get Well challenge! 

Phew - thanks for popping by!
