Get well soon

I came across a plastic hot water bottle embellishment that I bought years ago when I first started making cards - thought it was about time I used it!! The background paper is from my offcuts box - it actually is recycled because it was part of a wallpaper sample.

Colours are for Anything goes 57: the colour blue and one other colour, Colour create 86: blue, silver and white - also For your inspiration 20: photo inspiration:

and Our craft lounge 98 photo inspiration:

  1. Brilliant Hazel! Just right for how I felt a couple of weeks ago.

    Now, did the wallpaper sample arrive in your stash after a genuine mission when looking for wallpapers? Or, are you like me and have been known to snaffle some samples of wallpaper and borders 'cos you just know they would be good snippets for cards someday :)? Oooer, I'm such a naughty Pixie sometimes!

    Thanks so much for joining in again!
