Get well flowers

Hello lovely people,

I can't believe how fast time is flying by at the moment despite the long hours of daylight.  There's another Wednesday flown by in a whirl of washing, shopping and painting skirting boards.  Oh yes, we have new carpets for hall/stairs/landing and 2 bedrooms arriving on Friday and I can't wait.  Is is just me or is there something really lovely about brand new carpet?!  Apart from the fluff that it sheds for weeks afterwards!

Ok, that's enough about our home improvement project and it's time for a new challenge at In The Pink where our theme this month is...

GET WELL SOON

This needs no explanation but just to make it even easier for you to join in, any 'thinking of you' type card or something suitable to cheer someone up will do... as long as it has plenty of pink on it!
I never have any get well cards 'in hand'  so it was a really nice theme to do so I have one just in case!
Oooh, and check out these lush new papers from Pion :-)


Given that it was a pink card I wanted something girly and floral for the image and despite the small size of my Tilda collection I was spoilt for choice!
I was happy with the skin and hair colouring but not so much the dress.  Perhaps I'd better get on with that clothing colouring class at Kit and Clowder!
You can probably just make out the little dots of liquid pearls that I added around the flowers.

Well, I seem to have been quite chatty today so all that is left for me to say is please do pop over to In The Pink and check out the inspiring creations from the rest of the Pink Ladies.

Oh no, that's not quite all because I should just say that I will post the winners of my candy on Friday evening as a lovely weekend treat for two lucky people :-)

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,

1.  Midweek Magnolias (anything goes +/- summer fun)
