Swinging by to wish you well

This weeks challenge at Catch The Bug was to make a "Get Well" card. It seems like there is always such a great need for them.  Especially this time of year. 
I had so much fun making my first easel card for last week's challenge, I thought it would be fun to make another one!  This time I chose to make a window on the front and this cute image, Deacon Swing, was the perfect image choice for it. I like the way it looks as if he's swinging by to wish someone to get well.  Such a nice guy!

I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.
I used my Label One Nestabilities to make all the framesand my Oval Nesties for the sentiment.
Papers are blue and lime textured and DP from a Cricut mat pack.
I kept the embellishments to a minimum only using buttons and a bow to finish it off.



I think I may be hooked on these so plan on seeing a few more here and there.  Hope y'all had a nice President's Day.  I sure have enjoyed the extra day off.  Tomorrow it's back to business as usual so until next time, have a great day and thanks for stopping by!  TTFN

Hugs, Becky
