Get Well cards

I have been really busy over the past few days and have found no time to craft, but I was eager to take part in the challenge at the Simon Says Flickr group with the theme this time of "Dots or Stripes".  Yesterday I at last found some time and made these two cards.  I had run out of get well cards, my 98 year old Aunt is in hospital and as we live so far away I like to send her a card every week to let her know I am thinking of her.

This first card is using the Simon Says Square Stitched Dies, the Striped stamp is "Canvas Stripes " from Hero Arts  and the flower is from Honey Bee stamps. I have coloured the flower with Zig Markers and then fussy cut.

The second card also uses the "Square Stitched" dies from Simon Says and also their "Stitched Scalloped" die.  The flowers are Altenew's "Painted Flower" stamp fussy cut and layered on Pop Dots.  Need to get this one in the post today.

Have a great week

I love this background... I may have to find the striped canvas stamp for myself.
