Here's lookin' at you

At Sunday's meeting I was asked to make a couple of Get Well cards for lady Committee members. They are both lovely ladies and of course I set to straight away yesterday. The first one is for Marge, who has a wicked sense of humour. So I thought it had to be something amusing:
Marge and I often sit opposite to one another at meetings and many a time I have to look away - just a little rueful smile and a raised eyebrow from her sets me off with the giggles. Plus, her little ritual is to treat herself to a mini bottle of red wine at lunchtime to help during the afternoon when topics get turgid, sometimes I think a full bottle would be a better option :)

So, Penny Black froggies came to the rescue - and this is the Stickeroo I picked - and the sentiment inside will say 'Here's Looking At You' - I just know she'll cotton onto the meaning :))

I used:

- 5" x 7" white card stock

- Penny Black Stickeroo from the 'Pond-side Celebration' sheet, plain oval Nestie and a scalloped oval Nestie

- SU's 'Certainly Celery' card stock plus a matching one from a SU patterned pack bought over a year ago

- 'Dragonfly' embossing folder made by Craft Conceptions

- sentiment from SU's 'Sincere Salutations' set, stamped in 'Certainly Celery' and die cut with SU's 'Decorative Label' punch

- a snippet of pink ribbon from Hobbycraft I think, I have the last 2" long piece in a little poly bag ready to be taken to search for some more



  1. Oh Di this image is sooooo cute ..

    I love your colours too you have great taste..

    Oh, and meant to say too re your WOYWW post and SU spots??

    - I have bought some disconinued colours which dried up in spots or wore out and and have about five large SU ones this way and paper to match for some as you can get them very reasonably (or I can for US but should be plenty in Uk too ) - away just a thought,
    love Shaz in Oz.x

  2. Fabulous embossed top, your card is so cute and cheery and love the dotted ribbon and paper together.

  3. Wauuu love this card,

    PS I should know by the end of this month, a rough itinerary for when we will be South (as compared to North). Once that part is sorted, I should be able to narrow down a date to meet up!
