Get Well Wishes Set 40

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, August 19, 2009 @ 10:38 AM | , , , , ,

Hi Cyber Girlfriends! First, I have some REALLY good news to share! :) I want to thank the girls at Color Thowdown for selecting My Backyard Hooty card to be in their Top 5!!! YAWHOOOO :) These girls week after week bring us amazing color challenges & showcase their DT's inspiring examples to get you going! If you haven't already, I recommend that you go visit their site & see what Colors they are playing with this week! :)

I made this Get Well Wishes Set for some VERY special people in my life that are feeling a bit under the weather :( My girlfriend Shana's husband & 18 month old twin boys have not been feeling well, nor my 21 year old son. So, I had to make TWO of these sets, exchanging out the honey for some baked goodies for Shana's family to be hand delivered tomorrow). I combined FOUR challenges for this project! Here they are in no particular order: 1. For Color Inspiration - Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Challenge @11, (SPCC11) 2. For Sketch Inspiration - Taylored Sketch Expressions Challenge #78, (TESC78) 3. Use it Challenge #23 - Where I had to follow these guidelines 1) What is old is new again (use old paper-I have had this Green Galore for 3 years!!!) 2) The eyes have it (use eyelets -eyelet on the tag) 3) Neglected stamps (a stamp not used in 6 months - SU Linen stamp, can't even remember when I used it!!!) 4) A non scrappy item (recycled button bag from HL) 4. Pile It On Challenge #11 - Oh Boy (to make a masculine card - card for Jerry (my boy), Shana's 3 boys - Mark, Colvin & Nolan). If you are up for a challenge or if you are just lookin' for some inspiration, buzz on over to any or all of these sites! I hope my Get Well Wishes gift sets make my loved ones feel better! :) I'd love to know if those Sweet looking bees cheer you up? Thanks for buzzin' by! BEE Sweet!:)

First of all, congratulations on getting the recognition you deserve for your beautiful artwork. Second of all, I'm feeling a little guilty. I saw that there was a surprise for me coming up and I thought, No, I should stop scrolling down. But no, I couldn't and I looked anyway. I used to unwrap and rewrap presents at Christmas too. I'm a bad girl. What adorable cards! You are just as sweet as the adorable things you make. I look forward to seeing you in a little while. I hope Jerry is feeling much better very soon too. :)
