"Frog Green" Sick

      Yesterday, as I was making this card, I had a sudden flash of memory about a friend of mine who had come down with a nasty stomach flu.  After not hearing from her for a few days, I called and she answered the phone with a death-warmed-over voice.  I knew right away that she must be ill and asked her what was wrong.  She replied by saying she was "frog green sick."   I didn't need any additional details.  That pretty much said it all.  :-D

     So this card became a Get Well card which will go into the stash until needed.  

     Of course, the image is from Beccy's Place and the optional twist in the challenge this month is a sketch.  You don't have to use it because the theme is always "Anything Goes" with a Beccy's image but it's a fun sketch if you want to give it a shot.


And here's my card:


Colored w ProMarkers
Image cut w Die-namics die

     Have a great day and Happy Crafting!  NanaConnie

I hope it's not too long until your friend is feeling better, she sure sounds ill! I've never heard the expression "frog green sick" before but it doesn't sound good.
Your card is beautiful, you did a wonderful job colouring the image. I especially like how soft and pretty the flower looks. Wonderful mix of card stock too.
Cheers,
Beccy
