Get well soon

The sketch for Perfect sentiments 20 is for a 'get well' card:

My card is also for the recipe on Creative Belli 137: 1 ribbon, 2 designer papers, 3 colours (green, grey and lilac/purple) and 4 rhinestones.

The circle and square are chipboard - I've had these for ages, so it's good to use them at last. The card blank is stardream and is a smokey grey colour.

The lilac/purple papers are scraps - another for Pixie's crafty snippets 9.

This is also for:

Phindy's Friday 94: get well cards
Challenge up your life 63: get well soon
Sassy Cheryl 104: are you seeing spots?
Raise the bar 93: purple, green + one other colour (grey)
Paper sundaes 109: circles
More than favors Wacky Wednesday 65: circles

Suzie's 365 photos day 59: grey

I had a peep this morning to see what Suzie's prompt was for today ... and then we were out all day at doctor's/hospital (see previous post) and so I wasn't able to take my photo earlier.

'Grey' made me think of my favourite 'grey' - Basic Grey - I love Basic Grey papers, so here are some of them for Suzie's day 59 (and there are lots more apart from these):

For fun

It's been a tiring day. It started off with a doctor's appointment for John which led to a trip to A & E because the doc thought the swollen leg could well be a DVT. We eventually got back home just after 7 and have got to go back to the DVT clinic either tomorrow or the next day to confirm whether it is DVT or not. So all my plans for cardmaking went out of the window today - and John is much more important - but I'm just making a couple of cards now to help unwind.

This card is for the recipe on For Fun challenges:  1 senti as the main image, 2 different ribbons and 3 brads or buttons.

The papers are Forever Friends spring time, other bits, including doiley, from stash and another stamped image made with one of the PM moments of faith stamps, coloured with copics. The buttons were from Poundland - I like these because they are not too raised, so should escape having to pay the extra postage for large letter stamp.

I've used the sketch for CRAFT 143:
