Get Well Soon say the DT of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today brings us to the next fabulous challenge at the

The theme this week has been chosen by the very talented Francessca who has chosen

Get Well Soon

Now I love a little humour to make some one feel a whole load better when they are not well or in hospital, so just had to use some of my favourite little critters.  Here is what I came up with for my DT inspirational piece.
I created an easel card, using a House Mouse image my little critters as I call them.  The base colour and contrast on this creation is a pearlescent brown.  The papers are from one of my Prima packs I believe.  I have used an MS round the page punch for the pretty lace edges and some fabulous ribbon that I get from the Hobby House.  The sentiments are My Sentiments Exactly a combination set as well as the single get well wishes one. Little pearls are also from the Hobby house.  The flowers are from my stash obtained from various places, leaves are nestie cut.
The image has been coloured with copics, with the clouds created with Tim Holtz Tumbled glass. These two items can be purchased from 
here is the inner return with the extra little cutie.  All the edges have been distressed with Tim Holtz Old Paper.

I would like to welcome ALL my new followers, thank you for your kind support, I am now only 1 follower off 300, more candy to follow at the 300 mark.  Still thinking on what colour to go with for that one though.

 I would also like to thank all my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave such inspirational comments, I love them all THANK YOU!
