Get Well Soon

Last Friday night - just before I shut down my computer - I found an e-mail from Scenic Route in my inbox saying they are closing. Although it didn't come as a real surprise I am sad that they are closing. Scenic Route was the first brand that I bought when I started scrapbooking, and has been a favorite ever since. I just love their double-sided paper collections that always match so well. There aren't many paper collections that I buy twice, but Scenic Route is an exception. I couldn't resist placing an order at their online store as this is probably the last chance to get hold of some of my favorite collections.

I still have lots of Scenic Route papers in my stash, and pulled out the Lynden collection to create a Get Well card. I made this card for Riet who's recovering from pneunomia and otitis. Riet is a regular visitor of my blog and always leave me sweet comments. I truly hope she recovers soon. The card is inspired by Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #84.



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper Patterned paper: Scenic Route Lynden Stamps: Melissa Frances Button: Rusty Pickle Tools: Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Circles Large, Scalloped Circles Large, EK Success Flower punches, sewing machine Ink: Versafine Onyx Black Other: waxed cord, foamtape

Have a fabulous day!

I didn't know the news about Scenic Route. I'm sad because they have some wonderful, wonderful papers. I'm glad you were able to stock up on some before they closed down. Your card is beautiful. I KNOW it will bring a smile to her face!!!!! ♥♥ Kay

Ik las het nieuws vorige week al in een mail, maa vergat het steeds "te melden" op het forum. Nu herinner je me er weer aan. Inderdaad erg jammer. Gelukkig heb ik ook nog wel wat lijnen in huis, nu nog gebruiken, haha.
Lief kaartje trouwens en je bijdragen in het SBM vind ik ook erg mooi.
