Happy Easter Monday

Hello, Crafters.

My daughter and her
two children came
to lunch today and
we had a beautiful
roast turkey with
all the trimmings.
As both my daughter
and my granddaughter
are Coeliacs, hubby
always makes
gluten-free sage
and onion stuffing,
onion sauce and
gravy. This is one
place they can
come to eat where
they know all the
food offered is
gluten-free and
they can safely
choose anything
that's on offer!
Before they

arrived, I grabbed
a couple of hours
in my studio and
made two cards.

Today's  is a Get
Well Card using
the Hopeful

Thoughts stamp
set. Unfortunately,
I made a mistake

when I stamped the sentiment directly onto the card. I couldn't find a Stampin' Up! die or punch that would fit the sentiment so I used a deckled rectangle, that I believe is a Spellbinder die, which fits perfectly.  I painted the stamp using two Stampin' Write Marker pens - both discontinued colours: Poppy Parade and Gumball Green. Although it's quite time-consuming, I love the effect. The ribbon, which is also discontinued, is Gumball Green.

Why did I make a Get Well Card? No reason really, except I wanted to use this particular stamp and this was one of the sentiments in the set.

Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
