Welcome to the GET ILL SOON Blog Hop! What is this all about? Well, let me tell you.
Perhaps you may recall a while ago I mentioned that one of my Tweeple (@AuntiePrincess) says the darnedest things, and (with her permission, of course) I put some of these sayings on cards. So now when she says something funny, people just kinda expect I'll be all over it, and they are usually correct.
Last week she said something card-worthy, but - I WAS AT WORK! I KNOW! Someone ELSE jumped on it instead of me! Then Auntie offered it up as a challenge to ALL of the card makers in our little group, and informed us there would be judging and (more importantly) prizes!
What kind of prizes? This has not yet been revealed, but I hope it will be something from her ribbonwork etsy shop. She makes the neatest Cocarde, some of which are flat and would work well on cards (hint, hint!) She is also into vintage things and sells those in her Vintage shop. AND, she has hand-made lamp shades in her lampshade shop. This is a woman of many talents!
So what did she say that was so card-worthy? She said that sometimes she wished they made Get Ill Soon cards. That's right - wishing someone to get sick and go away. Someone else fired back he'd need a whole box of those. (I'm working on it, Gary!)
But you are not here to hear about OTHER people! You are here to see A CARD, am I right?! Without further ado, I bring you my entry in the Get Ill Soon challenge:
I think it is perfection. Why? Not because it is GOOD (though I am kinda loving it right now), but because (1) I used a just-bought stamp - Da Moose, (2) I got to use my new fancy tag Nestie behind the sentiment, (3) I got to open my pack of checked PTI patterned papers, and (4) I thunk up all of this while chained to my desk at work! Once I got home it all came together in about 10 minutes. Schweet!
ENOUGH with the blathering. I am sure you want to see the other entries in this little challenge, so without further ado, head off to the next stop at Lisa A's blog: papergrace.
And thanks for stopping by!
ETA: The winner of some cool cocardes is Dreena, the third stop on our hop!
