Lexi’s Creations 94 For a Friend

Our challenge this fortnight at Lexi’s Creations is ‘for a friend’ and we are sponsored by My Heart Pieces.

My ‘friend’ creation is a Get Well Card. A friend of mine had been feeling really unwell and after several fruitless trips to the doctor she finally persuaded one of them that there was something seriously wrong and after a few more tests, MRI etc. it was discovered that her thyroid gland had grown and wrapped itself around her windpipe! Scarey stuff, no wonder she couldn’t breathe. She finally had surgery last week to remove it.

My image is a House Mouse stamp, and I do seem to have made a lot of House Mouse cards lately. Like a number nine bus, don’t see one for ages and then three come along at once! I coloured the stamp in with my copics.

The papers are various freebies from magazines along with some stardream lemon paper and a sheet I printed from Nitwit Designs’ Lifes Little Lemons digipack. The sentiment I created on my pc.

I followed a sketch from  The Sweet Stop, which I first flipped to the right
