Get Well Wishes
I'm sneaking in a second card today; please scroll down if you're looking for my Cooking it up with Katie card:). This is a Get Well card for a dear friend who is faced with the frightening diagnosis of a brain tumour. Because of a shooting accident many years ago that has left tiny fragments of metal in his eye, he can't have the scans that will give a quick answer to his symptoms. John loves his racing and, to date, his finest hour was as part of a syndicate that won the Derby, hence the horse theme.
I've used the sketch from Cute Card Thursday for my layout and again I've been persevering with my brayer. The yellow green streak across the moon was not intentional but in the end I decided it was all part of the scene! Mare and foal is the first stamp I ever bought, when I found Lavinia Designs at the NEC and fell in love with her style of working. The tree stamp is also a Lavinia Designs stamp. DP is My Minds Eye and there are peel-offs in the corners, something I don't make a lot of use of.
My card is also for Cards for Men - anything goes and The Stamp Man - cards for men.
