Get Well Soon, Paulette!

Good morning!  Happy Sunday!  Hope you've had a great weekend so far!  I am here this morning with something very special.  If you follow the Create With TLC blog, you will know that the poor Paulette had a bad fall last week and dislocated and broke her ankle in three places! She has since had surgery and has to be in a big heavy cast for many weeks, followed by a long recovery period.  You can read all the updates on Paulette on the Create With TLC blog.  Paulette's wonderful daughter, Bri is keeping the show going on the blog and keeping us all updated and for that we are enormously grateful. 

Some of Paulette's current and former DT members are getting together today with a blog hop to send Paulette lots of encouragement and to let her know we are thinking about her and wishing her a speedy and complete recovery.  We have all created projects for her using some of the many freebies she so generously shares with her followers each and every day.  There will also be a Linky set up on the blog, so if you would like to create an encouragement or get well project for Paulette, you will also be able to add it there. 

If you arrived at my blog from Karen's blog, you are right on track.  If not, you may want to start at the beginning with Candy's blog, so you don't miss anything.

With that introduction, I will get onto my card for Paulette:


My card base and mats are SU Pretty in Pink and the patterned papers are from the Authentique Flourish 6x6 pad.  The cute vintage image is from Create With TLC.  It's called Playing Doctor.  I colored the whole little scene with my Copics.  The sentiment is also from Create With TLC.  A couple of paper flowers and a few gems from my stash finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the vintage image:


Thanks for stopping by!  Your next stop on the hop is Ileana.  Enjoy the rest of the hop!

Get well soon, Paulette!  We miss you!

In case you get lost, here is the whole list:

Desire - Doing Life 
Carla -  Carla's Stamping Spot (you are here)
Ileana - Sparkling Pink
Hetty - Craft Chaos
 
I am entering my card in the following challenge:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 #18 (sketch)
Sentimental Sundays #212 (when I grow up; I picked nurse for my profession)
613 Avenue Create #77 (anything goes; optional use pink)

I let the image take center stage.  It is colored with my Copics.  I layered on a beautiful sentiment, also from Create With TLC.  You can't see it well, but I ink-distressed the edges of the image panel with Antique Linen Distress Ink and I spritzed the whole image with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist.  A triple-loop, distressed seam binding bow and a couple of botanical Whimsies from Webster's Pages finished my card.

You Look Marvelous

Hi there!  Happy Monday!  Hope you had a great weekend and your week is off to a terrific start!  I am popping in really quickly to share a card I made with a new set Paulette has added to her Create With TLC store.  It's got a couple of fun vintage images and of course, fantastic sentiments to pair with them!

Here is "Look Cute":


Here is my card:


My card base and mats are SU Baja Breeze and the patterned papers are from the Teresa Collins Fabrications 6x6 pad.  I colored the elegant vintage image from Look Cute with my Copics.  The sentiment was a freebie some time back from Create With TLC.  I thought it matched well with the image.  That's it!  I kept it very simple with no added embellishments.

Here is a close-up of the image:


Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be around to visit a little later.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
