Am I bugging you?!

It seems like everyone around me are dropping like flies. Not dead like, but with a bug! Now autumn is truly kicking in here in the UK, I thought I should prepare some get well soon cards so I'm not rushing about at the last minute!


I got my inspiration from the Quixotic challenge blog "move it, move it" and Raise the Bar challenge to use orange, brown and green (kraft is a kinda brown, isn't it?!!). I've wanted to create a shaker for aaaages so it was a good excuse for me to do it a long last! It was a bit fiddly but I managed it after a few tries! Now off to make a few more...

Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Doodlebug papers
Stamps: CC Designs get well soon stamp set (can't remember it's original name, sorry!)
Mediums: Copic markers
Accents: ric rac ribbon and beads from stash
Tools: Nestabilities rectangle die, Martha Stewart border punch, a very sharp craft knife!
