A Quick Get Well Card

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

I hope you are having a great week. The weather was just amazing yesterday. I was helping at a Wet Felting Workshop and we were able to have our coffee break in the garden. I felted a soap. You can see it HERE. 

In the light of our son-in-law breaking his elbow I needed a Get Well Card. I turned to my stash of Pollyanna Pickering papercraft kits. He received the card on Tuesday. Yesterday he went back to the hospital and the cast came off. He has a small break and he has to be careful. No lifting and only short drives. This is amazing as he will be able to go back to work. He did like the card.

Last week I was looking at the backing paper wondering about when it would be useful, well yesterday it was. It took two passes of my Tattered Lace alphabet to get all the the letters for the sentiment. The die came free with a Tattered Lace magazine, some time ago,  the letters are a good size but the B doesn't cut properly. Fortunately this time I didn't need any B's. 

The topper comes in a pad all done and ready to go. I just trimmed the edges and matted it with black.

There it is nice and flat for posting and it is on its way now. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Happy Crafting
