Hippo get well!

Hi Everyone, I have the most exciting new for me anyway, I have been a fan of of Paulette at Create with TLC for a number of years and you may have seen me taking part as Guest Designer recently in her blog hop. WELL - I am thrilled to say that I have had the chance to become one of the DT and I am over the moon.

My card today so happens to include the sentiment from Create with TLC, it is a Get Well card for a friend of mine who was on an away day, helping people with arthritis to get around (she's nearly 80 but quite active). She had a bad fall and was taken into the local hospital where she had an emergency operation to insert a new hip! her husband had to travel 200 miles and stay in a B&B until she could come home 10 days later, after succumbing to a chest infection after her operation.

Anyhow the card - you know when you say you have uninked stamps? well this is one of a few hundred (at least) of digital stamps I haven't used. It's by Anne Fenton, I have had it for 5 years, shame on me.  I thought it apt with the sentiment from Create with TLC and a note added from me! I hope the cheery colours in the DP's by Melo Vrijhof at Pixelscrapper, cheer her up and get her on the road to recovery.

Congratulations on your DT assignment, and will be looking forward to your way with designing! Your friend sounds like a lady who would be a pleasure to know, and what a shame she had some misfortune while she was doing such kindness. This cute hippo is sure to bring a big smile and the cheery colors just have to brighten up her day. It's darling. TFS & Hugs

First, this is as cute as can me. Happy image, and happy colors and all of it put a big smile on my face. Next, the thing I got is called PizScan by Cameo. I bought from Amazon for $13. It's not real new but new to ME....haha. You buy the mat, calibrate with your camera. Stsmp your images onto your paper. Take a pic of stamped images on the mat that you put the paper on. Cameo will now cut around the edges or you can leave a border. It's pretty accurate. It's about two steps but beats fuzzy cutting around some tricky images.

Sorry to hear about your friend. Sounds like she is in need of a cute card like this one to cheer her up. I love this card with the bright yellow and pink. The hippo is as cute as can be and so perfect to be pink.

Ouch! Your poor friend!! I always find it especially sad when one gets hurt while doing good deeds for others. I do hope she's doing much better now.

Your card is fabulous! It's bright and fun - and just perfect for a hip replacement!
