Get Better Soon!!

Happy 2nd Day of January everyone! Does anyone have some good plans for their upcoming weekend? We have no plans (ahhhhh) and I'm thankful for that because come Monday back to the "real world"! Hubby goes back to work and kids go back to school!! The time off was nice but it will be good to be back in our routine again too! Although my kids are so prayin' to get some snow soon--we've only had some flurries and sleet, nothing fun to play in (although I'm looking forward to spring already, LOL)! Ok, onto my projects of the day....

Today marks the kick-off of our contest over on PaperCraft Planet for the "Countdown to Karen Lockhart" release of her new stamps. Please stop by our site (Fans of Karen Lockhart) to leave a comment to be entered for a Itty Bitty stamp that will be given away by Susana everyday thru the 5th!! We'll also have sneak peeks of the new stamps and Susana's DT will have projects for you everyday. Also starting on the 5th of this month we will have a huge webcandy giveaway that includes a signed and colored *new* stamp by Karen Lockhart and some other fabulous goodies!!

My project today features Karen Lockhart stamps of course and I'm the first of the DT projects for our countdown! I had seen this get well-kit on my blogger friend Sandy's site (see her blog for dimensions and directions) and knew I had to make one (or 2 or 3)! Super easy to assemble and such a nice gift to give someone that is in the hospital or just home sick in bed! I used the Lockhart stamp "tissue box" on the front of both the card and get-well packet. This yummy dp is by K&Co "Roam" that paired well with SU's new baja breeze cs.

This is a close-up of the card---for each tissue box image I colored with Copics and then added a sheer coat of Shimmerz on top. I cut a slit in the tissue box image and added real tissue to it for a fun look! Inside I stamped the Lockhart sentiment that says "Sneezie, Queezie, Wheezie" which I think is soooo cute! The baubles are "goldilocks" and they will be available from Susana's store this weekend---she's getting lots of colors and metallics in (I wuvvy them)!! I used elegant colors and patterns to make this set gender neutral so it would be appropriate to give to anyone, but it would also be fun jazzed up in cheerful colors especially for a sick child!

This is an inside view of the packet which includes a pack of tissues, a chapstick and a throat lozenger. I attached them all with red-line tacky tape. To make this packet close I added a wrap around tab and hid a small Basic Grey magnet on the back and then this pretty metal brad to the front--the brad automatically sticks to the magnet (just a nice alternative)! Such a quick and easy gift for friends or family who aren't feeling well!

Please make sure and stop by our PCP site and enter our Lockhart contest---we'd love to have you. And check out all the Lockhart stamps in Susana's store too---she will have all the NEW Lockhart stamps in store on Friday, the 5th for you to purchase. And if you buy 4 regular sized Lockhart images you get a free Itty Bitty stamp of your choice too--no need to buy them all at once if you don't wanna cuz' Susana will give you a cyber-punch card to keep track!!

See ya tomorrow!
