Secret Crafter's

Saturday challenge #13 and my first one of the year.
I needed a get well card for my ex MIL as she had not one but 2 heart attacks last week!! (Ex's family are really going through the mill at the mo - it was Florence's funeral on Friday!)
Anyway, the template is another good one so I decided to give it a try :)

The striped paper is Je T'aime My Mind's Eye and has to be one of my all time favourite papers (so I only use bits at a time :)) The stamp is one from Imaginisce Snag 'Em stamps that I bought a couple of months ago but have only just showed it an ink pad LOL and the punched butterfly is using a beautiful glitter card from my latest design kit by Debbi Moore, take a look, it is gorgeous!!

I also needed a quick card on Friday as we made a donation to the hospital who looked after Florence and this is what I came up with, it was a very difficult card to make!
The stamp is again from my design kit and everything else was from my 'left overs' box-I am detemined to empty it this year!!!
I'm now finishing my DT cards so I can get them in the post tomorrow.
See you later :)

Lovely cards, well done on trying to use up those left over bits - something I am very guilty of not doing nearly often enough.
