Get well soon Fran

I made a card for my cousin Fran who is in hospital...I kinda want to keep it cuz I LOVE it lol. I think it's the colours...what do you think...

I'm really into turquoise at the moment ... I think the pp is from a Dovecraft pack though not sure what it's called. The rest of the pp has cups and saucers, teapots,cupcakes and flowers on them...ring any bells? I printed Clear Vase Delight onto PTI cs and coloured it in with my Copics. I added Zircon Swarovski crystals to the centre of some of the flowers and Glamour Dust to the rest....they are sparklicious!!!

Not sure why I always colour water with the lightest of blues as water is clear...maybe it's all the maps I used to love colouring in school lol. Anywho, after colouring the water I covered it with Glossy Accents to make it look more real.

I can't stop using my new Flower Trio die

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Paper Sundaes - Anything Goes
House of Gilli - Flowers
iCopic Challenge - Spring Colours
Incy Wincy Designs - Digi's only
Karen's Doodles - Something Spring
Make It Mondays - Anything Goes
Simon Says - Anything Goes
Whoopsie Daisy - Anything Goes
Sadly my Uncle Bob, Frans dad, passed away on Good Friday. He was my Grandpa Tom's (my mom's dad) brother and there was another brother Uncle Herbert who passed just after my grandpa so it's an end of an era. My sister Tracey and I used to go to my Uncle Bob and Aunty Millie's when we were small for sleepovers and treasure hunts. I used to (and still do!) eat really fast and Aunty Millie would always say 'Kerry, slow down you're not catching a train' lol. We had great times and have wonderful memories which will stay with us always.

I hope this card cheers you up a bit Fran...please get better real soon.

Thanks for stopping by.

Catch ya later x

So sorry about your Uncle Bob Kerry.

Your card is just gorgeous. I think its the colours too, its a "grown up" card, if you get my drift! Is that a new felt colour??! I must order some of the new colours you have and I am also running out of pink!!

Hi Kerry,
What a lovely card for your cousin! The soft blues are so peaceful and relaxing and I really like that you added gems to the centers of some of them. I'm sure she's overjoyed with it and can understand why you'd want to keep it! LOL.
