Get Well on Tax Day!


Today is a day we in the U.S. dread. It is by this date that our federal taxes must be paid. This fact makes many people ill. So.....the challenge this week from my friend Joanne (JoJot)  is to make a get well card!  The inside of my card holds the get-well sentiment "A Get Well Wish" (Rubbernecker).

I used my sweet Little Lovins Girl with Hat image by Rubbernecker; she is watercolored with mostly SU inks except for the Ginger Adirondack ink I used on her hair and shoes and the gray Copic markers on the kitty she is holding.  I stamped the background with a new Florals (#496-09) release also by Rubbernecker in Blush Blossom and Cameo Coral.  I used the SCS sketch and color challenges for this week.  The colors are Blush Blossom, Cameo Coral, and Ruby Red (with a dessert option of Close to Cocoa).  The cocoa corduroy button is by Stampin' Up and the other buttons were gifted to me in a bag of pretty buttons by my friend Traci (thanks, Traci!)

If you'd like to see the projects my team mates made and/or play along in our challenge, you can get all the details on our CCEE blog!

I had a laugh at the write-up on CCEE this morning - and some of the cards, too. Yours is just so sweet, the soft, almost monochrome look with the little grey cat is gorgeous.
