 Hello everyone,

Been a busy old day this morning, all nice stuff, had my hair done and it made me like a million dollars, did some shopping, got a new things that make us happy..AND, some quality chocolates which I plan to devour after dinner tonight..yum..

But for now, the reason we are here is another new challenge over at Little Red Wagon and our hostess is our lovely Doni and her theme is ...FEEL BETTER - Get well or encouragement.

My project was simple and fast...

The flowers I made last week sometimes while I was "Trapped " in my house.
{ we were not allowed to go anywhere as people were and getting in the way of emergency vehicles}

Love the layering, new Tim Holtz daisy those leaves, going to use them a lot with other dies as well..oh, wait, I have not added the veins here..

Ahh..veins. never thought I would be happy to see veins..

and that wee panel is a paper towel after spraying butterflies and mounted or wrapped around cardboard, I haven't used it yet, but I will, just thought I would mention it as it was sitting there in the photo.

Butterfly from butterfly making day, just needed background papers and a sentiment..
The die cut images just faded away on the papers and I could not really see the sentiment, so needed a panel..

And this scrap from the flower was just the right size and leftover and the last of it's colour..
Phew, it saved the day..

Then changed the sentiment die cut for a " Get Well Soon" ..

Added my butterflies [from butterfly making day].. onto the panel

And some more little clusters of flowers from a set from Altenew, love these too for filling gaps.

and DONE!

So do come on over and show us your cards or journal pages or anything you like as long as it fits the theme you are good to go..

Thank you so much for stopping by..

I'll see you tomorrow or Thursday..oh, wait tomorrow is Thursday, yay only 2 more sleeps and it's the Friday and then the weekend..which means I stay at home for 4 days and do whatever I weekends are 4 days long. isn't that great, should have bought more chocolate!!

This gorgeous card would make anyone feel better Chrissy, your fab flowers, leaves and butterflies sit so perfectly on the embossed panel.
Isn't it funny how much better we feel after a hair do ? I remember during Lockdown that it was months before I could get a hair cut- I felt like Rapunzel- BUT NOT in a good way!!! Enjoy those chocs!
