Card and ATCs - or I can't believe I don't have a "Get Well Soon" stamp!

On Saturday I finished the BQL October bag, which I can't post a photo of; I also went to meet with friends from the UKSewing group, thank you to Gill for her great hospitality. I came home with some Burda magazines that needed a new home, as well as a length of lilac mohair coat material from Diane. I sat and stroked the mohair like a Bond villain with his cat all afternoon. Not a successful afternoon for stash reduction, but sometimes a fabric calls out your name - and this one didn't even have a price tag attached... thanks Diane!

On Sunday I made a card for DS2's 15th birthday, featuring Desmond, his bearded dragon, photographed under conditions of great secrecy when Jack returned to school.

I also made these ATCs for a swap on UKATCs, they are for Alison. The dandelion is a Hero Arts stamp that is my absolute favourite at the moment, it's so versatile for cards and ATCs alike.

Today I needed to make a Get Well Soon card for Pauline, who has her hip replaced today. I have a HUGE collection of stamps considering it's not much more than a year ago that I began cardmaking, but do I have a Get Well Soon stamp? No I don't, how ever could I have missed that? So it's Warm Wishes and some butterflies for Pauline and a mental note to buy one next time I'm at Stamp Attic. The silly thing is that I was there yesterday and could have bought one had I not been convinced that I had one at home...
