Get Well Soon Blog Hop



Michelle Rodgers of Stamper's Dream just had some surgery, so the Dream Team is getting together today with a surprise blog hop to wish Michelle a speedy recovery. Surprise, Michelle! Get well soon!!

My Dream Teammates are a wildly talented bunch, so hop on over to see what they've all done for Michelle today. You'll see two new faces on the team - welcome, Cindy Lawrence and Dawn Easton!

Visit Michelle at her blog if you'd like to leave some well wishes, too!

Today's card is also my sample for Jen's Sketch For You To Try for this week. Have a look:



I'll confess I had major trouble getting this sketch to come together. I don't know why?? It *looks* innocent enough. I had just given up on my third attempt and was scooping up all the scraps, when today's card more or less fell in place on the scrap pile.

The "You Make Me Smile" sentiment and decorative border on the card front are both from JustRite's Seeds of Kindness set. The patterned papers are all from Basic Grey's Origins 6x6 paper pad. I included my "Get Well Soon" sentiment on the inside, which is from Just Rite's Just A Note set.



Be sure to check out what the other SFYTT sisters have put together for sketch inspiration this week:

Jen del Muro, with guest designer Mona Pendleton
Amy Rohl
Kelly Lunceford
Leigh O'Brien
Susan Liles

To play along, upload your creations to the sketch slideshow at the bottom of Jen's post today. Use keyword SFYTT in the online galleries.

Have a great weekend, friends.
