Get Well Tree

Mornin', y'all.  So....I really don't know what else to say, 'cause I don't want to talk about the election or anything.  People be crazy.  Let's just ignore that and have a go at today's card.


I've discovered that if left to my own devices for a sketch, I tend to go very simple.  But I dunno, this card seems a little too plain to me?  I started with the color challenge from Global Design Project:


I admit it kinda stumped me until I put it together with the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge:


I pulled out the tree from Thoughts & Prayers just because I hadn't used it in a long time and I liked how you could fit a sentiment under it...thought about going with a sympathy card (because it's always good to have one or two on hand) but the colors seemed too bright for that, so I thought a get-well card would be better.  And I usually don't have a lot of those in my stash so that seemed a good idea.

So yesterday I spent a good chunk of time working on more scrapbook pages, and when I get some journaling done I will have met my 2016 scrapping goal, yay me!  And I really liked the layouts I was working on yesterday so all I wanna do today is more scrappin', but I should probably go to the gym first just because I had cinnamon rolls for dinner last night.  Told the hubs I just didn't feel like cooking up a "real" dinner :p

Cheers, y'all!
