Yesterday I found out that one of my Mum and Dad's oldest friend is really having a hard time living with cancer and they wanted a card to give him that showed they cared. Now I've known Jack all my life, his wife was there for my Mum when she started going into labour until Dad arrived. Now Jack is a lifelong Bury F.C supporter and my husband and his family are fans of bury's biggest rival the mighty Rochdale A.F.C
Now I wanted Jack to know we cared but I didn't want him to think I felt sorry for him so thought I would have a little joke with the card. I also felt that the usual Get Well Soon was not right for obvious reasons.
I needed to explain all this as you just wouldn't understand the wording otherwise.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges :
Critter Sketch - anything goes
Simon says stamp - anything goes
Stamptacular - anything goes but be creative (I needed to be creative with the wording)
Crafty pad - blue and brown
Paper sundaes - super duper sketch
Pile it on - B is for .... Bear
Bugaboo - anything goes
Card making mamas - digi week
Stamp something - digi week
Do you stack up - friendly critters
Isn't he just the cutest!! He is of course Teddy Bo. He has just had his shop made-over and would love to show it off to you if you pop over. He is coloured with my super duper copic's. In the sketch the image had inverted rounded corner's and sadly I don't have one of those punches so instead I'm using a woodware one Mum won and gave me. The paper's are actually nitwit one's that came in a pack with a magazine. I so love these denim look papers. The gems were originally clear but I coloured them with my copic's to match in with the colour scheme.
I really liked this sketch so much so I continued with it on the inside of the card.
