Isn’t this bear adorable??? My best friend’s mom (and my surrogate mother) is having hip surgery soon. While this bear’s injury is to his head, I’m sure she will appreciate the sentiment! This set from Jan’s Digi Stamps, called Get Well Bear, has the main image as well as several sentiments, and accessory images that I chose not to use for this card. As typical of Jan’s images, they come in color and b/w. I love coloring, so I almost always opt for the b/w version. Though if I need a card in a hurry, I appreciate the ability to print of a colored version and the card is ready in a jiffy. This card is my DT piece for the current March challenge at So where it is truly an Anything Goes challenge!!!
I printed the image and used a square die from Simon Says Stamp to cut it out. I used Tombow markers to watercolor this image. There are several sentiments to choose from but I picked this 2 part sentiment as it is perfect for post surgery rehab. I die cut the first half with a fishtail banner die and used that as a guideline to make the mat for the banner. On the inside, I added the rest of the sentiment and matted it on matching green cardstock and patterned paper.
We also have some changes coming up in April. We’ll be moving to a monthly challenge starting on the first Monday of each month and ending, as usual, on the Sunday before the new challenge.
In addition to that, we will be doing two, separate, random draws each month; one for those who use a Jan’s Digi Stamps image and one for everyone else. Each winner will receive a gift certificate worth $10 which can be spent at the Jan’s Digi Stamp store. If you use a JDS image, your chances of becoming a winner are so much greater and you can add to your collection of beloved JDS sets that much faster. 😀 Now, head on over to the challenge site to see what the rest of the DT created and to enter your latest creation (card, scrapbook page, quilt, baking delicacy, etc) for your chance to win! Make sure you are a follower of the blog as its the only requirement for winning!!!
