Combined Challenges

This morning when I checked the challenge blogs, I had every intention of making different cards for each of the challenges. I have a couple of cards to make this weekend and thought that I would tie them into the various challenges. Things didn’t quite work out that way. Instead I completed 3 challenges with only one card. The challenge over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge was to create a Get Well Card. Our Creative Corner wanted us to use a tag somewhere on the front of our card. Sketch Saturday, of course, posted one of their fantastic sketches:


I combined the 3 challenges, and came up with:


I have been so focused on my new stamps that I had almost forgotten about this cute little Gift Bear. He’s bringing a flower to brighten someone’s day. But, he is rather unassuming so instead of simply saying “get well soon” he implores the recipient to “feel better, please.” For some reason, he looks a bit faded out in the picture. I didn’t notice it when I was working with the picture but now that I am posting it, it is rather obvious.

Thanks for looking.
