Perfect Sentiments Challenge #31 ~ Getting Well Without Get Well

Are you confused yet? LOL We all have those fun sentiments to use for wishing someone well. For example, All Fizzled Out, Under the Weather, Wishing you Sunny Days, Feel better Soon, Take Good Care, etc. Now is your chance to use them.

Our wonderful Sponsor this week is Shelly's Images!  One lucky winner will receive a free digi from her shop!
 Now for the challenge:

The Challenge: create a card with a sentiment that wishes someone well. Sentiment must be on the front of the card.

The Twist: You cannot use the words “get well’. Dig through your stash of sentiment stamps and use those sentiments that wish someone well using words like…Under the Weather, Wishing You Sunny Days, All Fizzled Out, Take Good Care, Hanging by a Thread, etc. I know you have them and “Thinking of You” does not count. So get them out and get inky!

This sweet little digi from Crafty Moments has just been aching to get used.  I found the sentiment in a book and thought it was a perfect fit.  In the book, it says for chicken pox/measles, so I added those little extras to the stamp when I colored it.
