Get well

I almost never send Get Well cards, so I almost never make them, so when I need one, I can't dig one out of my stash, I have to make it right then.  Here is one I whipped up yesterday for poor Lynn Stevens - her appendix burst, so she has been in the hospital all week, and has suffered through some dreadful surgery.  She is not someone I have ever met in real life, but she is a Technique Junkie like me, and had always had great comments about the cards I post to the group, and has been very encouraging to me about getting published - I couldn't just sit this one out.  

 

The Pencil highlights technique didn't come out quite right, probably because of the metallic textured cardstock I chose, but once I had my pencil in hand, it seemed a simple thing to handwrite the sentiment.  You may remember the Kitty digi, it is one of my favorites.

This card also happens to meet several challenges -
Whew - It's taking longer to blog about it than it took to mail it! Oh, by the way, if you also know Lynn and want to send her a card, I will be happy to pass on her address, just email me.

What a lovely card and I can see why you love that stamp.

The flowers should have been purple though in order to qualify for the monochromatic challenge, but nevertheless your card is great!
