GET WELL - Punchart

Hello fellow crafters
Would you believe we are nearly 3-months into 2013 already. With all this snow, it seems like Chrstmas was only yesterday. 
This is a card I made for my boss who had been very poorly. 

The owl punchart 'nurse' I have made before but liked the idea of doctor and nurse for a masculine 'get well' card. Thanks to fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrators for sharing the punchart images on Split Coast Stampers. 
The owl punch and greeting from Curvy Verses are all from Stampin' Up!  Every owl punch purchased from me will receive a copy of my owl class tutorial. 
Happy craftin'

Hi fellow crafters

This is a card I enjoyed making for a colleague at work who had just become a new Dad. Quite proud of the compliments when other colleagues signing their congratulation messages. 
When David and I were away on a cruise in Hawaii a few years ago, I took part in all the craft activities available on board ship whilst at sea.  We made a bear similar to this use thin wooden circles and so for this card I punched lots of circles using Stampin' Up! Punches, some same colour ink sponged round the edge of each piece (yes, some were very fiddly).  I have also seen a similar image on Pinterest using coudroy covered buttons. 

The balloon strings were made from Stampin' Up! White Bakers Twine, pulling strings all together after mounting on card and rolling a glue dot to keep all strings together, before tucking under bears 'paw'.
I can't wait to make a pink version and some more for my stock box. 
I hope you have enjoyed seeing this project and feel inspired to create yourselves. 
Bye for now, happy crafting :-)
