Get Well...

Hello friends... after a hectic Saturday morning, I am now relaxing at home. Just completed my 2nd dose of antibiotics today and Kendall just got her 3rd dose of antibiotics... boy, have we been in the wars at the end of our winter... wish we could get better now... 

As you know I belong to a wonderful group of crafters in our country called the Rubber Stamping in SA group.  These ladies recently rose to the challenge to make cards for CANSA in celebration of Cancer month, which is this month.  Our group comprises of individual crafters of all ages, each one having her/his own unique stamping/crafting skill. We can learn such a lot from each other, which is wonderful for a newbie like myself. I am learning where to get stash at better prices... helloooo... we all want to save a few pennies so that we can buy MORE stash, don't we....  I'm learning new words that are still very foreign to me... I've met a few of my blog buddies in the Cape Town area and even one from Johannesburg and they are all LOVELY people... There was absolutely no awkwardness at all when meeting them for the first time... we share the same hobby, so we just jumped in and started chatting as if we'd been doing it for years...

OK... I'm getting to the point now... we are also there for each other in one's time of need... should someone be ill, we're informed thereof so that we can send a Random Act of Kindness (RAK) card, just to cheer that person up... so, as one of our members has not been well for a while, I sat down last night and made this card for her and posted it today... Just thought I would share it with you all...

Not sure of this size card, but thought I would try a different size for a change... Just love this little nurse trying to give her patient some meds to make him better... awww, so sweet.  It's a Lili of the Valley stamp, for those who don't know.  I decided just to colour it with my chalk this time, to give the copics a rest...lol  and I quite like the softness it gives to the image.

Used the same papers to decorate the inside and my Best Wishes stamp.


I hope this card will cheer the recipient up a bit... thanks for popping around and leaving a comment... and if you're not feeling well today, I hope you'll get better soon... hugs Sharon x

p.s. As it's World Cardmaking Day today, just couldn't let the day pass without showcasing a card.  Can't wait to read what you've all been up to today.  Hope you've had FUN FUN FUN!!!

Hoi lieve Sharon,

zo spijtig te horen dat jij en Kendall nog steeds ziek zijn, dat klinkt niet goed. Je kaartje is weer zo mooi, ik ben er van overtuigd dat diegene die dit kaartje krijgt heel blij zal zijn en zich vast beter zal voelen.

Voor jou en je dochter veel beterschapsknuffels vanuit Belgiƫ!

Vele groetjes,

Lins xxx

Oh this is so beautiful, Sharon! I love your effect of colouring with chalks - so soft and perfect for that image, too. I realy like the size of card as well - it's nice to see something a little different.

Ahhhh what a super sweet card for I too love the image! I love the softness of the chalks and have been using mine to do the outside of the images which I am unable to accomplish with Copics or stress ink. Hugx, feel better soon! xoxoxoxo
