Get well soon

A friend at church had to have surgery and so I broke out this watercolor panel and had this background panel I had done earlier for a challenge with my stamp group so I thought it would be perfect for this. I colored this one with markers instead of watercoloring this time.



HERE is a link  to the tutorial on the background.
I used two different ribbon dies for the borders and I was done.

Taylored Expressions -- Keep in Touch, watercolor panel, colored w/markers
Wink of stella -- clear glitter pen on flowers
Cheery Lynn Designs - Alison's ribbons die

We are enjoying a Beautiful, sunny, cool morning today, brings a big smile to my face.

The Lord bless you
    and keep you;
25 the Lord make his face shine on you
    and be gracious to you;
26 the Lord turn his face toward you
    and give you peace.
Numbers 6:24-26

This is my best verse for closing out a church service, May you all have a blessed week ahead!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

Connie

That watercolor panel is the cutest and your background is pretty amazing, too! It's such a cheery card and absolutely perfect for sending get well wishes. I hope your whole day was as beautiful as the morning. It was gorgeous here and I was able to finish a big garden job.

Dearest Connie,
after this period of 'interlude' which I had to allow myself due to work reasons - the Short Lets I manage here at Tenuta Geremia, the speech about the Empress of Austria I had to prepare and to perform at the conference which was held last Saturday at Madonna di Campiglio, in our Dolomiti, some works of restoration here and the family to join and follow took me far from the pc for more than a month and a half - it's sucha deep joy to be here again, surrounded by your charming art, thanks most sincerely, sweetie !

May the remainder of your week bring much joy to you,
sending my dearest love

Xx Dany
