Get Well Wishes & A Special Thank You Too

Today I just wanted to share a couple of cards I made last week while my oldest was in the hospital for a ruptured appendix. 

The first one is a card I made for him. I used two of my favorite images from Some Odd Girl. I used Pajama King Tobie and Sweater Pup.  My son's favorite color is orange so I added a lot of orange to the card. I wanted it be bright and cheerful so the bright, almost neon green really did the trick. 

This next card is one that I made to give to the nurses that took such good care of him while he was at the hospital. They were all so nice and did such a great job with him. I used the image Super Mae, also from Some Odd Girl.

Again, I used orange. Since the card was to be from Zach I wanted to use his favorite color. I had a hard time deciding what color to use with it and ended up going with black, which added the challenge of not making it look like a Halloween card. I think I succeeded. I added some ribbon and rhinestones and lots of patterned papers from my stash. The nurses loved it and hung it right up in the nurses station so that all of his nurses from the week would be able to see it. 

Both cards were colored with Spectrum Noir Markers. Here are the colors I used: 

Mae Card: FS2 FS4 FS9 TN4 EB5 TN7 TN5 OR3 OR2 GB3 IG10 IG8 IG6 EB3 EB2 Clear Sparkle Pen, Black Diamond Stickles

Tobie Card: FS2 FS4 FS9 TN4 TB5 TB3 EB3 EB2 EB1 EB5 TN7 TN5 OR3 OR2 GB3 CR1 DG3 CG2 CG1 IG8 IG6 IG5 IG3

I would like to enter the Mae Card in the Some Odd Girl Linky Party as well as in the following challenges:
