Smell better soon!

Hope you are all having a great weekend! Still hot, probably too, right?! I'm in Fort Worth so we're used to it about this time of year! I feel bad for all of you that aren't used to it!
My post today is 2 cards, one for a very dear friend of mine that has been very ill and my DH's auntw who has similar "issues" as well! they both have lymphoma also. My heart breaks for both of them.
Well, since I love PKS stamps, and when they had a sale a week or so ago, I finally caved and got the Skunk Cheer stamps. But there is also a challenge at the Cricut Circle Blog, so I combined the best of both worlds! as well as my Silhouette Cameo and Cricut! a match made in heaven!

I decided to make one with the Create a Critter Skunk image and one with the PKS image. But when I got ready to make the PKS, my black Stazon pad wasn't damp enough! So I scanned in the image from the PKS stamp and Cut and Print with my Silhouette!! woohoo! I wanted the same kind of coloring on the CAC skunk so after cutting with the E2, I used gray and white Perfect pearls! It looks so cool IRL!! The flowers were also cut and printed with Silhouette!!
My recipe:
Cricut E2
Create a Critter Skunk cut with black at 2.75"
Doily and border from 3 Birds
Banner, pink background cut from CTMH Art Philosophy Cart
Black and White background from Slice Black and White Pad
Pink Shimmer paper from DCWV Shimmer Stack
Perfect Pearls - White, Pewter and "pink bubblegum"
PKS Skunk Cheer up set

I think I'll like the PKS best when I get a stamp! Whatcha think?!! thanks for stopping by and good luck to my Circle friends! Have a great week ahead!
