Feel better little bear!

It's the 15th of the month and that means two exciting things. Firstly it's pay day (and yay for that) and secondly, it's time for another challenge at Sparkles!

Our theme for this month is


For my DT work I purchased a brand new stamp from Meljen's Designs - Sick Little Bear. He's the most adorable little fellow, every time I look at him with his little thermometer in his mouth and his scrunched up tissues I just 'awww'.

As the last card I made as a Get Well Card was a girly one, I thought I'd keep this one more masculine, for a sick little boy or perhaps the next victim of the dreaded 'man flu'.

I coloured the image with copics and then simply layered the card over some light purple cardstock with three rows of purple ribbon. I used my swirly cuttlebug embossing folder on some teal cardstock.

Our sponsor for our challenge this month is Di's Digis, who are offering our winner a $10 voucher for their online store.

Get Well Cards are one of my favourite types of cards. There's something extra uplifting about a card when you are feeling poorly. My teammates have made some lovely cards - visit us at Sparkles Monthly Challenges to see them in all their glory.

Also entered into the following challenges:

Craft Your Days Away - All Creatures Great & Small
Allsorts Challenge Blog - A Card for Man or Boy
Totally Papercrafts - No Pesky Girls Allowed
Pixie Dust Studio - For the boys

I hope you all have a fabulous week!
