Crafty Individuals Challenge 'For my Friend'

Well I really didn't know I was going to make this when I sat down at my craft desk today. Everyone has gone out and left me on my own (am I bad to want to shout 'hooray!'?) so after some necessary housework I  thought I'd sit and play. Nothing I really had to do today, but I had this challenge from Crafty Individuals in the back of my mind.

I've also been missing my best friend as she has been pretty poorly lately and not getting out much - just the usual coughs and sniffles but never ending as so many colds have been this year. I've left it a bit late to send her a get well card as I am seeing her tomorrow before we go off on holiday - yay!! Sunshine (I hope!!). Her very favouritest things are beach huts, (you may recall I made this card for her birthday last year) and I just happen to have that CI stamp with beach huts so somehow this came together. Went old school, used my water colour pencils to colour for a subtle effect. It started ATC sized but then I decided to mount it on some other card, triple emboss it and add a magnet to the back so it can be a fridge magnet.  Quite simple, but I hope she'll like it.

QUICK REMINDER - FEBRUARY ART DRAW CLOSES MONDAY 25th AT 9.00 PM.
