Elphine House Australia Challenge - Get Well!!

I cant believe its been two weeks since our "Welcome Back Daisy in Fall" challenge. 
I have been trying to get this posted from yesterday but had a few problems with Blogger...dont know if it was just me or is others having problems??

Anyway the new Elphine House Australia challenge is up and going and this time the theme is...
Get Well
I bet we all know someone that has flu or a bad cold, sore throat or the winter sickness bug. Why not cheer them up with a card or a gift..or anything handmade project you like. 
You can use ANY ELISABETH BELL doesnt have to be a Elphine House Australia stamp but if you have one we would love to see what you do with it!

On my card i used Nursing Boo Boo, who i love and you can get her here.

I have found my new and latest addition to my "cant be without" tool! When i was at the Hobbycraft show i was watching a demo from the girls at Inkylicious and they were using there Ink Dusters brushes. You can use them to cover large areas of your card but also is great for just edging just like a blending tool does but it is way much easier and gives a really even coating. With my blending tool i sometimes get areas where the ink is uneven...i have been using the Ink Dusters since getting them and its been perfect everytime. Will never go back and have ordered more. I would say that these were one of the "hot" selling items at the show last week. Everyone that saw the demo were picking them up! I used them to ink the edges on this card.
