Get Well Soon! - New PCS Release!

Happy Thursday to ya! Hope all is well in your neck of the woods! Today, the kids have dental appointments - in and out all at once!

Also, Pink Cat Studio has new digi's available today! Click here to check them out!

My first card uses the Sick Lily Digi Image. I made a card and a tissue holder gift set. I got the idea for this from Stephanie's Blog. She has a video tutorial here.I used some SU Raspberry Lemonade DP along with Melon Mambo, Crushed Cherry and Rich Razzleberry cardstock. I had some SU felt flowers left over from a few years ago - they go perfectly with the Melon Mambo!

Here is a close-up of the card. I used one of Melissa's free digi images. I cut it out using a tag nestie and inked it with Crushed Cherry. I punched a flower with a Marvy punch in Razzleberry and layered it under the felt flower. I added a Basic Grey button and some DMC floss.

Here is what the tissue holder looks like without the belly band. The box holds a Kleenex small tissue pack and can be refilled.

Here is a close-up of our little sickie! :) She's looking a little pale, eh? And her temp is way high! LOL - went a little too far with the red marker!

Here is my second card - Sick Billy. He reminds me of my littlest one who has asthma and is always sick! He is only 4, but spends plenty of time on the couch down and out. I made another card and tissue holder set, but the card has a little surprise!

I dug waaaayyyy back in my stash and found some totally vintage Basic Grey - Dazed and Confused - I swear it was one of the first sets that ever came out! I love this stuff! I used some coordinating Bazzill with the DP. I had a hard time decorating this tissue holder - I could not come up with a boy embellishment, so I figured just leave it plain - my sons would just stand Lego men on top of it anyway! LOL!

Here is my little secret to my card! It holds 2 cup-a-soup packets! I got this idea from Suzanne Dean's post HERE, but modified it to fit the soup packets. This size would also fit cocoa packets like these. They are shorter and wider than the Land-O-Lakes gourmet packets. My dimensions are 8.5 x 8.5 and score at 4" and 4.5" vertically and then follow the rest of her directions.

Here is a close-up of this cutie-pie! I colored him with Copics and then inked around the edges of the circle with some caramel chalk ink.

Off and running! Have a fabulous day! ~Tori
