Hop to it, Adorn with Jewels.

My second post....don't think I've ever posted two cards the same day before.

I've made this card for a Friend who has just had an operation on her foot. She has pins in it and will be hobbling about on crutches for 6 weeks, poor thing. 

This is one of my favourite housemouse stamps...think they are just so cute and look like they are having a whale of a time - I've used it previously for a new home card too....very versatile. Not quite sure how long I've had the stamp, it's pretty old, a good few years. 

The first part of my sentiment 'Hop to it' is fitted onto one of the retro flowers, with the 'and Get Well soon' acting as the bar to hold the easel in place. My image is coloured with water colour pencils - I coloured the image, and wet the area's afterwards. 
Wish I could remember where I had the card stock from, I really love the texture, and these sheets are pearlised too.
