Get Well card..inspired by Jeannie Phillips

I made this card for a dear friend of mine who just had major surgery. She is doing well, but in a lot of pain. When I seen Jeannie's Thanks for Helping card it gave me a cute idea for a get well card. I did mine a little different. I don't have some of the carts she used, so I used what I had. I did a lot of inking( I never ink) but after this card I really like it. If you have never seen any of Jeannie Phillips cards here is her blog A Place for My Cards. She is now making videos(they are great). I would like to Thank Jeannie for all her great cards she shares with everyone..her work is beautiful.

I Used:
DCWV Flower Shower Spring stacks
Bazzill cardstock
DCWV cardstock
Wausau cardstock
PS cart-grass
DC cart-Sun
P&F cart-Turtle, Flowers, & Butterfly
WC cart-band-aide(it is the get well card size 1/2"-I just cut the card part off) yes very tiny, but I think its cute.. :)
SU Chocolate Chip ink-for inking
Pop Dots

I made the inside like the front, but only did the pattern paper layers. I will write a note in there for my dear friend.
If you notice the butterfly is delivering the turtle a flower..I drew tiny legs on the flower stem to make it seem like it was carrying it..My friend lives 700 miles away and I wanted to make her something to cheer her up :)
I might also go back an make a little tiny bow an put on the turtles head so you know its a

Thanks for Looking! Have a Great Day!


  1. Sheena...this is a piece of art, nothing short of Phillips, believe me. I hope your friend gets better soon and hint her she can always frame it. It is gorgeous! Love-love the scenery and the mini story within in.

  2. First thank you so much for all the sweet words in your description... and thank you too for being inspired by my card and letting me know about yours!!

    Your card is so gave me goose bumps.... the paper choices are out of this world... I love love love the band-aid on the Turtle...and I love love love the butterfly carrying the the flower!!! ...this card is absolutely amazing... be sure and let me know what your friend things of it!!


  3. Thanks flowerdisco!! I will have to tell her when she gets her card to frame I say I will be getting a call in the next few days, I just mailed it out today.

    Thanks Jeannie for your kind words. Your cards are beautiful works of art. I wanted to give inking a try. I always use colored ink to match the colors in the paper. I really liked using the brown ink this time. I will have to try inking more often :)

    Hugs, Sheena
