Wishing You Well...

Hello Fellow Crafters,

" Sending "Wishing You Well..." prayers, happy thoughts and words of encouragement. Each day is a new day for new opportunities, a new a blank sheet a paper to fill our day with things that build us up no matter who or what tries to tear us down.  

I woke up Saturday morning with Bell's Palsy a paralysis of a facial nerve on one side of my face where I lost control of my movement of the muscles. My speech, eating and new smile with a drooping right side of my face seem to be quite a challenge. I thank my Heavenly Father this is a temporary virus and healing is going to be a process. I have to mention when I look at myself in the mirror I wonder who this new women is...and surprisingly giggle and not cry as I think of one of my favorite Walt Disney movies " Hunch Back of Notre
Dame... with the Quasimodo(Hunchback) character. I fell in love with his sweet character not letting his looks make me shun him or give him a strange looks. ---As I go out in the population to do my shores...I only hope I will get compassionate smiles and conversations. I had my first good one yesterday. 

Today I am sharing with you my fun play with this adorable My Besties image with bandaids on her and on the balloons as a Get Well design. I cut her out and made into 3D image. I put a little Diamond Stickles on her here and there.  I think she is so adorable. I have been slowly putting her together on a card design I hate to say for over a couple months now. I have some projects I start and just seem to put on the back burner until I am ready to do the final closing so to say.  My Design papers are also a My Besties digital paper collection and somewhere in my My Besties printed paper stash I found these beautiful purple flowers.  I enjoy having fun mixing matching my elements and colors together with what I have to complete my card. I find it therapeutic.

I finally got the urgency to finally glue, paste, pop dot and finish distressing the paper as needed. Sometimes I have projects that I start and they take me awhile to complete. I try keeping all the little paper details with that specific project in a clear protection pocket folder.  I keep a cute little tin with all my 3D Cut outs that I do for future card design. 

I was hoping to give it to someone special knowing it would put a smile on their face with the cute and happy features.  Well...guess what that urgency to want to finish was because I wound up giving the card to myself to look Wish myself well and a speedy recovery. 
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
