Get well for Mum

Hi All,
Hope you're all excited about the new catty. I thought I could post this card now that the new catty is out.

I made it for Mum as she had to have an operation recently. Thankfully she is making a wonderful recovery (hi Mum, xox). I used a set that the gorgeous Lavonne brought me on her recent visit from the US (she's headed back home *sob*, miss you Lavonne!). I was very glad to see it turn up in our new catty. It is called 'Morning Cup'. I love any images to do with teapots, cups etc, so this set is sure to be a favourite. Of course I CASEd it, from this card made by Ilina Crouse. I have had no time to think, and am not terribly good at coming up with ideas with at the best of times. I once again used colours from the 'Cottage Garden" DSP, Orchid Opulence (now retired), Old Olive & Rich Razzleberry. We don't have the punch here that Ilina used so I added a piece of CS cut using the Curly Label punch. I used versamark for the background images. I thought the sentiment 'Perk Up' was appropriate for a get well card. Mum seemed to like it, and that was the main thing, she took it into the hospital to set on her night stand.
That's it for today. I'll pop back soon with some pics of yet more birthday cards & two that i've made for Dad's day. The occasions just keep coming. i've no time to enter a challenge in months :-(  
I really wanted to enter Andrea's blog candy challenge but had a last minute Union meeting to attend (see roster comment 2 posts ago) and a new mobile phone to figure out. Time just got away, I can't believe it is nearly 10pm.

Enough raving, sleep well,
Fi xox

Hi again hunny! Don't stress about my challenge ... I know how life gets ... when the heart is willing and eager ... but time just doesn't allow for it! This is very cute ... and I am so glad to hear your mum is doing well. You have had a busy time looking after your mum. Hope you can take it a little easier after all the busy-ness of the last few weeks. Hugs Andrea xxx
