PP481 Get Well Soon


Happy Sunday, peeps!  Did you remember to turn your clocks ahead, if you're in the US?!  We turn ours ahead early on Saturday afternoon....one, so we don't forget, and two, it just makes the transition a bit easier!  Of course, if you have plans, to need to adjust accordingly!  Anyway, it's time for a color challenge at the Paper Players, with Laurie as our hostess!  I love these fun colors together:


They gave me a chance to play with the fun Birthday Bonanza DSP, so here we go:


I diecut the little koala from the DSP using the Bonanza dies....they make it so easy to get a perfect image, LOL!  I stamped some balloons in Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral and Bermuda Bay and diecut them as well.  I positioned them on a big banner of confetti DSP and hand-drew some balloon strings down to the koala:


I created a horizontal banner and stamped a get-well sentiment on it in, then added a little element at the top, embellished with some ribbon:


The sketch I used is from Try Stampin on Tuesday:


My final additions were a few little sequins; this card was sent to a young lady who has been in the hospital for a few days and I thought it might cheer her up!  So I also entering it over at JUGS, where their theme for the week is "heal".  


I hope you'll play along with our colorful challenge this week!  Be sure to check out what all the designers created at the Paper Players blog, and share yours with us too!

Hi LeAnne, I loved to see one of our favourite native animals on your card. With the bushfires we have lost people, fire fighters including three of your citizens and over a billion native animals and thousands of Koala's, we are crying over here about all that has happened. We have also been in severe drought for years hence the fires being so extreme, at the moment we are having the best rain we have had for many years.
Love your newsletter.

What a fun and cheery card for someone feeling under the weather - they'll get a smile for sure! And yes - I USUALLY move the clocks when I go to bed. Not this year, though, for some unknown reason. It was a most unpleasant shock on Sunday! :)
