My Aunty Kathy

Hi there friends!  Got some news last week.  My Auntie Kathy went to see her cardiologist for the 1st time in 7 years.  She had been having pains in her chest and just wanted to have this looked at.  The dr. scheduled an angiogram.  During this test, the dr. interrupted the technician and woke Auntie Kathy up.  Emergency 4x heart by-pass surgery.  Of course, she was taking a few medications that needed to be stopped.  So this Thursday she was scheduled.  Everything went great (praise the Lord) but she actually had all 5 done.  She is recovering, pain is manageable so she just has to get out of the hospital next week sometime.

Now I needed to make her a get well card.  Auntie Kathy and I are only 12 years apart and are more like sisters.  So I needed to make something that would get that grin back on her face.  So here is what I dreamed up, well with ScrappyDews help!  Here's the lyrics...

~Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells 12x12 paper
   *Frightful Folly
   *Steampunk Spells
   *Fanciful Florals
~Scrap Factory Program
   *Closed No Toes Body
   *Winter Dress #7
   *Accessory Bunny Slippers
~Flannel material
~Of course Make The Cut, and my printer

So I made the doll first.  I just love the Scrap Factory program.  There are probably millions of combinations for creating just the right doll for your project.  I knew I wanted to make the dress and sleeves in fabric.  So after cutting the paper pieces, I just glued on bits of material.  Worked slicker than a whistle!  Presto Chango....I had my card done and in the mail.

I made an easel card

See the little cup of cocoa?  I was able to find this free svg file from a wonderful new program that Rob and Michelle from ScrappyDew have developed. It's called SVG Hunter. Please take a look at the link.  It is the best money you could spend this year in your crafting.

So maybe next week I will be able to share with you the final gift tag and presents for my DIL birthday the end of the month.  

Bright Blessing for a fabulous week!  Jana
