Less is More #137 (Get Well Soon), Addicted to CAS #22 (Get Well), Paper Smooches Sparks 16/9 (Purple, Teal, Lime Green, Grey), Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge 18/9 (STAMPtember)

There’s a brace of ‘Get Well Soon’ challenges this week … it’s the theme chosen by Chrissie and Jen for our one layer card at Less is More … and it’s also been picked by the lovely Sandie over at Addicted to CAS.  Oh good … a bit of challenge doubling.  But wait … it just so happens that I used Paper Smooches stamps for my card, and as the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge this week is a Cool Shades one, my colours are their colours … purple, teal, lime green and grey.  Challenge trebling then …

ETA:  I forgot .. Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is asking us to use something from the store this week to celebrate STAMPtember … I used Paper Smooches Healthy Vibes, so am submitting there too … quadrupling!

I love this little creature as it’s able to morph into different things … a while ago it made an appearance as an extraterrestrial (here) … this time it’s a germ … not sure what it might turn into next time.  Wish I was as versatile (in a non-germ way of course).

As well as taking the starring role during this performance, this little ‘thing’ had a walk-on part … as a mask, so I could get it’s buddies to float about in a crowd-like manner across the stage card.  Once the crowd got themselves settled, they were coloured with Promarkers, although for the extraverts among them that wasn’t enough.  The lime green ones insisted on hogging the limelight (naturally), so are sporting doodled spotty numbers instead of plain outfits.   They all have stickles added to their head-blobs (I was going to say antennae, but don’t know if germs have them … head-blobs seemed more appropriate) and the ‘feel better soon’ part of the sentiment nestles cosily between the tail-blobs of the final four.

Before I move on, has anyone read ‘A Million Chameleons’ by James Young … either themselves or to sons/daughters/nieces/nephews/grandchildren?  It’s the one that starts ‘a little chameleon all in vermilion,  danced alone in a garden pavilion’.  If you have (and it’s not toooo long ago), don’t these germs remind you of the illustrations of the chameleons?  If you haven’t, and you have little people to read to, try it … it’s charming and delighful.  I read it to my niece a million times when she was between two and four years old … it was high on her favorites list (and mine because we had so much fun together with it!).

Now … some exciting news.  Yesterday, my whelms were very definitely overed when I found I’d made it onto the ATCAS Wall of Fame … to be in the company of so many talented and inspiring card-makers … wow … I mean WOW!  Thank you so much Kylie, and the rest of the DT for such an honour … and for such a fun challenge … your hard work, creativity and enthusiasm is so appreciated 🙂

I’m looking forward to a browse round blogland a little later, to see who’s been inspired to do what, so may see you there.  In the meantime, thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a delight!  Anita 🙂

    I love this Anita. Your masking is fab but why is purple bug left behind, being purple he should be the star!!! I have this fun set and have been a bit unsure of how to use the bug, masking is a great idea. Congratulations on your top honour with us and thanks for joining us again at ATCAS x

    Absolutely the most delightful looking germs ever! Especially lovin’ the outfits that the green guys are showboating! Amazing job masking all those critters – especially the skinniest of skinny antennae! I would have been tempted to just draw the little suckers in!

    AND NOW….A HUGE, HUGE CONGRATS ON MAKING THE WALL OF FAME at ATCAS – a very well deserved honor! The cards posted on “the wall” are so fabulously “Anita”…impeccable craftsmanship and brilliantly creative!

    This is such a cute and ‘clever’ card! I love the color combo and how you placed them across the card! Your description had me laughing (thank you, I needed that), and I have to tell you, I think the green ones have the ‘Chicken Pox’….Such a fun card, which I’m sure will help someone feel better!

  8. Kate

    Wall of Fame?!! How cool is that???!!!! Well done and well deserved dear friend!! Woohoo. Did you feel the earth shake, as I was happy dancin’ for you? And this little card is just another example of your amazing talent. Cute, cute, cute, and sure to cheer up anyone who’d ‘caught a bug’. Love these colors and images. As Geri would say, “winner, winner, chicken dinner!”
