A Get Well Card

An older relative has been sick, so I spent yesterday putting together a card for her from my granddaughter. Though I didn't actually use any of the digi graphics I've collected for this card, I still wanted to share it with you. Let me know what you think. The card is larger than a normal card. I have some fancy special-sized envelopes and wanted to send the card in one of them.

Since the card was to be from my granddaughter, I put her name on the little girl.

My daughter wanted me to use use this Magnolia stamp in the card, so I started coloring away. I'm still not sure about skin tones (just how much color to use), so my little girl's skin ended up being a bit darker than I intended it to be. And, and her red hair (Skyla has red hair) still needs a bit more of a lesson learned, or practiced, or...whatever.

In the next day or two, I'll be posting a new free Word Art. Not sure if it will be another Halloween design, Thanksgiving, or an Autumn one. Got several ideas churning away in my brain.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.  Remember, I'd love to hear from everyone, so please take a moment and leave a comment.

Leaving a comment for me means a lot. Being new at blogging and hearing from visitors would be like getting a 5-star rating on one of my books. :0)
