CAS(E) this Sketch! Get Well

This is my second post today.  
"Something wonderful"is just a post away.

First...I just have to say that I have a problem with the sentiment "get well".  It just seems so demanding..."get well - now!"  As if the recipient has a choice??!!   So I was cringing the entire time I was finishing this card, but I painted myself in a corner with that tag.  I needed a get well card but I didn't have teeny-tiny, less demanding sentiment.

OK...now that I got that off of my shoulders...it's time for a new sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch!


So many options!!  If you check out the design team, you will find that some used the tag - but you'll also see butterflies, vases and a few streaks and blobs of paint.  It really is quite amazing to see how a group of people use a sketch.  That's why I also love when you play along because I get to see them all!!

Here's my card.  The tag became a fence, but I did also add a little tag on my fence!

Get Well

Hope to see you play along!

I once used the sentiment 'feel better' and this totally freaked my husband out, but I actually think it's kinda cool. I've never really thought about 'get well' before... I don't think I'll ever look at it the same though lol. ps your card is sooo sweet.

Great minds DO think alike! I thought I was the only one to think that way about Get Well! What if someone has a terminal or permanent illness? I use "thinking of you" or "remembering you in prayer today." For more serious afflictions, I think an appropriate Bible verse is more encouraging along with a personal note inside. Your card is very cheerful and just fine for someone on the mend, though.

This card is so sweet and full of fun details - the twirls in the BG - that I think the smiles it brings will help anyone get well. And BTW, you're a total dearie for sharing your techie knowledge with us tech-less bloggers.
