Forget you're ill

A get well card for a five year old with chicken pox, poor boy. I'm hoping this will cheer him up a little, he likes cars. The image is Mo's, and he didn't originally have curly hair, so hope Mo doesn't mind me taking liberties with my colouring pencils. It means he's ended up with big hair, hope his mom likes the 80's look lol. 

He's coloured mostly with ProMarkers, but Lyca pencils for the hair and the bumper and go faster stripe. I tired to make them look metalic as per the tutorial on Dorcas' Blog. I only had the dark & light cool grey so had to do my best with those. I'm not too displeased, but want my greys to do it properly lol. 

My greeting is stamped, using a frame stamp and separate get well. They are both stamped in versamagic chalk, and the card outlined in the same chalk. 

My cardstock is from the £10 Mystery Parcel I received from Sarah Wright today. It's a lovely pearl, shiny and embossed. The Mystery Parcel is well worth the money, I had beautiful double sided patterned A4 cardstock, A4, A5 & 8x8 double sided papers....all lovely. Stamp sets, rub on, sticker, including 3d Stickers, ribbon, raffia, velvet rik-rak. I am so pleased with everything.....such a lot of fun to unpack it all.

Wow! Linda, this is an amazing card. I LOVE the vibrant colors. It doesn't look like something colored, it looks like a print or something. I'm sure he loves it. Hugs, dj

A perfect bright and cheerful card for a little boy! Hope he feels better soon. I remember when my 2 had chicken pox. We had to miss the memorial that year :(

Adorable, Linda! Such a sweet card for this poor little boy!
How are you, Linda?! And how´s Paula?!
Hubby and I are fine, but I felt, that I needed a break from paper crafting and commenting during summertime... I concentrate a little more on my photography skills... natural light is wonderful now!
Sending a big hug your way,
Uli
