Whether it's weather or feeling poorly, either way I feel sorry for you.  I'm blurdy freezing.   Anyway, time for another card over at
 I ♥ PROMARKERS (#156) and this week the theme is Four Legged Friends.  Ok, I admit, mice aren't everybody's friends, lol but I think they're quite cute.  The ones I see are frozen though 'cause my Royal Python LUVS them, ha, ha.  Our sponsor this week is  J & C CREATIONS with a £10 online spend up for grabs for our winner.

I don't think I've made a get well soon type of card before, but I just adore this Paper Shelter image.  This is  my second attempt at a card with it mind, my first was a bit too 'in your face' for my liking.  And, I think my lighting was wrong 'cause the shadow on the foam mounted mouse look a bit strong.  My papers are from a Teresa Collins pad called Sweet Afternoon .  I have used Cheery Lynn, Nellie Snellen and Lea'Bilities dies and an EK Success border punch (although most of the border's hidden).  All I used then was one brad and a computer generated sentiment.

Fabulous card Lorraine. Love that image, gorgeous colours and great layout.
My hubby has a pet Corn snake so I'm quite used to seeing frozen mice too - poor things!

This is SO cute! You've done a great job picking papers for this card, I like the combination of patterns and soft colors. I also think you've put together so many lovely die cut elements. It's a beautiful card - spotted it on MIM.
