Get Well Soon!

Good Morning Lovely Blogging and Crafty Friends and of course anyone who happens by.
I hope all is well with you and that you are enjoying your weekend. Still not getting the weather that should be Summer up here in Inverness.

Alistair phoned from Iceland last night to say that the weather has been wonderful and they have all had the best of times, so there will be lots of stories for him to tell.  He should be on his flight back now, but will be staying with his friend Mick in Heysham and coming home by train tomorrow.  I am looking forward to having him back.

This is just a quick post today, I promised myself I would do some housework so I had better crack on, but here is my card;
As you can see it is a Get Well Soon card and it's for my friend Dale who has shingles on her head and it's very painful, so I thought I would get a card together for her.  We are going down to visit her and Stewart in July for the Edinburgh Jazz Festival.
I have used, Time Holtz Sizzix die, with Silver Centura Pearl card behind it, there are 4 in the set and all really useful.  Sheena Douglass poppy stamp and die set, and  Textured EF all from the Summer edition of CC Inspiration Magazine. Die'sire sentiment die, SN Aqua pens, star dust which isn't showing, Hobby House pearls and a tiny Papermania bow.
Dale loves poppies and has all sorts of ornaments, pictures, curtains you name it around the house so she is sure to like this.

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments on my last card, and I'm pleased to have made some of you chuckle at Teallch's photos.

Take care of yourselves and enjoy your Sunday,

Hi Kate,
what a wonderfully designed creation.
Love that fab poppy stamp.
My Mum had shingles in her head, and didn't realize she had it till she visited the docs, and said she had a very itchy scalp.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Kate, poor Dale she will feel poorly, shingles are horrible. Your card will cheer her up that's for sure. Your peace will be broken then once alistair gets home, I can just see the mountain of washing you will have so here's hoping they have got the good weather right. Hazel x

Lovely card Kate. I had stopped buying magazines, but couldn't resist this one last week, since I love poppies too.

So very lovely, and just the thing to cheer your friend with the shingles. Those can be so painful. We took the shot after seeing a friend laid low with a very bad case. Love the TH die (think I have that one with the 4 dies - got with a coupon, not used yet). Your pretty card makes me want to hunt it up. I really like the blue & white color scheme too...perfect choice for the poppies. So glad that Alistair had good weather for his trip, and I know you'll be happy to have him home safely once again, to enjoy all his adventures. TFS & Hugs

Fantastic card Kate. Love the argyll/ diamond die. Your friend must be in so much pain with the shingles. My son had them when he was getting his cancer treatment but the doctor gave him a painkiller which was specially for shingles and he got a lot of relief.

Hi Kate, what a beautiful card for Dale, my favourite colour comb. Shingles can be very nasty, I hope she feels much better soon.
It sounds as if hubby has had a super trip. It is somewhere I'd love to visit too, maybe one day!

This is stunning! Hope your friend recovers quickly from the shingles. It is such a horrible illness. Al and I both got the vaccine after our youngest daughter got shingles at 38!
Hopefull it will protect us.

Love the colours of your card...Aqua is my fave colour!
