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
