Get Well Kitty

Here's a card I made a while back.  I had been putting together a gift pack of cards for my Niece who is in University, and this card was made to go with it.  Her favorite colour combo, as I recall, is yellow purple and green, so I wanted to use at least two of them.

The image is a House Mouse one, and so sweet!  When I was little I was always so jealous of the other kids because they got casts and everyone would sign them.  Now I'm happy I never had one, and got to keep my bones intact LOL!  Funny how our ideas change with age :-)

Here's a close up of the main image:

It's coloured using copics, and the DP is SU.  The pretty ribbon is some I got on clearance a while back, not sure of the brand.

I figure this image works if someone is sick or if their kitty cat is sick LOL!  Talk about versatile.  The perfect item to include in a gift pack of cards for a university student.

Speaking of useful cards, my poll on the sidebar is still ongoing, and I'm looking for feedback and comments (you can leave a comment on any of my posts) telling me what type of cards you use (give, not hoard) and how many in a year.  If you donate to retirement homes or to our soldiers abroad, or give gift packs like this to friends and relatives, those all count.  I'm interested in seeing what the trends are and what you are doing in your home with your cards, so please share some ideas with us.


  1. AWH SO sweet, i love it :)

    I do a lot of Holiday cards, but the ones I give, mainly end up being Thank You Cards, or just general friendship ones.

    Ways to say thanks for things people do for me, and for being there etc :)

  2. This is such a sweet image! Great colors too.

    I make and use the most of Christmas, Birthday and Thinking of you cards. I use the "thinking of you" type cards for get well, cheer up and lots of other purposes.

  3. Very sweet card!!!! I'm patiently waiting for my first order of House Mice to arrive!!!

    I make a lot of thank you cards - or cards without a sentiment on them so I can grab them quickly to use for whatever purpose I need. I've started making cards for our Minister to use and I make a lot of musical thank-you's for parents at school who help me out or come on field trips.

  4. sooo cute, love the image, you colored it soo nicely and colors are great too!

  5. This is such a cute card. What a great image. I love that it could also be used for a wide range of ages.

  6. Oh how cute! I love the stamp and your coloring is beautiful, the design paper matches perfect!
