My Sheri Crafts Challenge #094: My Family

The challenge this week @ My Sheri Crafts is to create a family-themed project or card for a family member. My original idea had to be scrapped as my die cutting machine is 'ill' and out for repairs!  :`(  Sooo glad it's still under warranty and should soon be back and cutting like 'new' again!
Since my SIL just had major surgery and is home recovering, a Get Well Soon card for her fit the bill perfectly. 
I began with Heartfelt Creations China Fragments' Tea Cup stamp set that coordinates with Spellbinders' Nested Tea Cup dies I won last fall. LOVE both these stamps and dies, which were cut from white CS, colored with Copics to coordinate with Authentique's Delightful floral PP. The cup is aged with Black Soot distress ink and popped onto a doily  spritzed with Smooch Spritz Pralines & Cream. Want2Scrap's clear rhinestone 'steam' swirls from the cup's rim. A Lace Doily Accents border edges the left side. My sentiment from Little Paper Shop is stamped onto a JustRite Custom Antique Labels One Die that's accented on each end with halves of a decorative die from Lacy Doily Motifs, then laced with Martha Stewart ribbon tied into a bow to finish this card!
Hope it brightens my Sister-in-Law's day when she receives it and that you'll be inspired to create a family-themed project to post @ My Sheri Crafts now!
