Get Well Eeore






Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge at Whimsical Wednesdays! This week the theme is going to be Get Well with a certain little boy named Angelo in mind. This week both card teams have come together for our challenge to make get well cards for a very special little boy. Angelo, 15 months old, who is the grandson of Margie from Bella Bug Creations, is going through a very difficult time right now. He underwent brain surgery last week and will begin Chemotherapy next week. You can read more about Angelo at this post over at Margie's blog. We hope that you will all join us this week and make a card for Angelo too.
I decided that this is a card for a baby in retrospect and so I didn't want alot of frills and kept it simple. I also wanted something that he might recognize and most kids know who Eeore is. I cut Eeore from Pooh Font at 4 inches. I used Glossy Accents on the ball and stamped the sentiment. I also used a black pen and did a stitching line around the mat and added a bow. I hope you all like my card and will play along this week. I can't wait to see what you'll create!

Gigi, if that isn't the sweetest thing ever! First of all, kudos to you for having the patience with the Disney character cut...I struggle immensely with those! LOL!
I love the look of the glossy accents and I know Angelo is going to recognize Eeyore...they watch Pooh cartoons all the time. Thank you so much for taking the time to make this adorable card for Angelo! I am so touched by all of the amazing cards the DT has come up with.

This is super cute and super clever to put an image on that a little child would recognize. Eeorye is my favorite. I have lots of statues and stuffed animals of him. This is so playful and happy. Perfect get well for Angelo he will love it. Great job with the challenge.

Oh GiGi, what a perfect card for Angelo. I know he will recognize who is on the card. You have such a great use of the glossy accents. This is just adorable.
Please accept my apologizes for being late with my post today. I tried to get it up this morning in the Atlanta airport. But I had no luck. It was late today before I could do it. I think so much of everyone of the DT. I just do not want to let anyone down.
