Congratulations, Marie! Please send me an email (RobinKirk@aol.com) with your selection and contact information!

OK, on to today's card! I recently needed a get well card for a good friend who had surgery and loves lavender. This Lockhart Stamp Company image fit the bill perfectly! Once I had selected the image, I decided to use this sketch from the Clean & Simple blog as my starting point. The patterned paper is from the Memory Box Biscotti collection and the card stock is from the Prism Majestic Purple Pack. I stamped the image on Rustic White card stock and colored it with Copic markers. I used a larger square Nestabilities die to draw the outline with a Lavender Copic Spica pen. The Feel Better sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Mixed Messages set and was stamped using Adirondack Eggplant ink. That's about it for this clean and simple card!

Thanks to everyone who left such nice comments for the blog candy giveaway. I really appreciate all your kind words! Have a great week and try to keep cool!
