Hi All!!
Had some sad news last night - my Aunt .. .who is 92 ... has had a heart attack and is in hospital, she is quite frail and I'm off to see her shortly.
I wanted to make her a card this morning before I went and was searching for a sentiment to put on it and realised I didn't have any!
So I thought - there's probably quite a few of us that don't make "get well" cards very often and when you need some words - you haven't got any - so I designed a set of 6 especially for that and have just uploaded them to my blog Sentiments 4 You
I think there's something there for all ages, male or female :o)
Here's my card I'm taking with me

I tried a different technique with my Letraset Aquamarkers ... I coloured directly to the stamp and then spritzed with water and stamped to give a watercolour effect - then cut the image out with nesties - I did the same with the sentiment, butterflies are both Martha Stewart, paper is from the Henbury Lane collection by Papermania
Thanks for stopping by :o)


  1. What a lovely card Lynne. Tulips, your favourite. Hope Auntie was in good spirits when you saw her.
