Get Well, Fell Better!

This week at For Fun Challenges, we have a GET WELL / FEEL BETTER themed challenge for you.  I love to create cards for this reason, but I don't get to make to many Get Well cards .... although I make a lot of  Feel Better cards regularly, or cheery cards as I'm told they are!

Our sponsor is the super fabulous Dearie Dolls Digital Stamps... and I know that every time I visit the  Dearie Dolls shop, I smile! They are an awesome collection of images!  It is definitely a pleasure to create with these images!

I fell in love with this image... simply named SMILE ... it reminds me of all the times that I've taken my fingers to someone's face and made them smile!  I'm sure it would create a smile for someone else when they open the envelope!

Ingredients: White, Cardstock; Patterned papers; Stardust Glitter Pens; Promarkers; Pigment Inks; Rhinestones...

I coloured the image with markers for the faces and hair, and glitter pens for the clothes.  I couldn't decide what colour to  use for the girl's dress, so I left it neat - I thought yellow smiley faces on a white dress would be nice and bright!

I edged the image layer with a variety of pigment inks, to introduce more colours, but only little bits... I'm happy with this 'rainbow' effect, and will use it again,  I know!  I  used layers of blue and yellow papers to mat the image and added it to a white card base.  Unfortunately some light globes blew in my kitchen, and I didn't have enough replacements .... so the lighting isn't fab on the picture.  In actual fact it is quite a crisp white card.

We have some awesome creations from our design team this week.... guaranteed to make you feel better!  I hope you'll stop by to the For Fun Challenge blog to grab some inspiration and join in our Get Well, Feel Better challenge!  Thanks for peepin'!

Hi Pauline. I am so glad I found your blog (through the very sweet Jennifer Dunn). I am really going to try to enter the For Fun Challenge this week. I would also like to invite you to visit my blog and become a follower if you like - I would love to also follow you, but thought I'd ask you first. I am on the Design Team at Word Art Wednesday ( and would LOVE to see you play along if you get the time. Hope to see you at my blog!
