Missing You Card

I'm mortified that it's been over a month since I've posted to this blog! Ack! I can't really say I have a good excuse, either. Yes, my health issues continue to slow me down, but the real culprit is Facebook games, to which I've gotten hopelessly addicted. I'm taking steps away from the games because I genuinely miss stamping, so I have high hopes that I'll find a healthy balance between stamping time and computer play time soon.

So, moving forward...

I was asked by my new nurse last week to custom make a "miss you" card for her sister several states away. I was inspired by a piece of Razzleberry Lemonade DSP that was sitting on my worktable, and the card came together quite easily from there. I love when that happens!

Below is a photo of the inside of the card before I added personalization -- a computer-generated sentiment that includes the recipient's name and a message. I found the RGB code for Rich Razzleberry and printed the inside message from my computer printer.

Stamp sets: Whimsical Words, Tiny Tags
Colors: Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry, Whisper White
DSP: Razzleberry Lemonade
Punches: Trio Flower, Scallop Trim Corner, Scallop Trim Border, Medium Jewelry Tag, Curly Label
Big Shot: Top Note die
And: Rich Razzleberry polka-dotted grosgrain ribbon, gold brads, Stampin' Dimensionals

Yeah, the sympathy cards I started on months ago are still at the top of my To Do list, along with adding finishing touches to the Build-a-Bears for the Las Vegas Ronald McDonald House. With the new Stampin' Up! Summer Mini catalog going public in a few days, I am highly motivated to meet my stamping commitments so I can move on to play with the ultra cool new toys coming out!! Hang on to your socks, people! You're gonna be dazzled!
