Day 97

Well, I am trying to do a bit of catch up at 365 Cards today.  Sunday was Day 97 and here it is Tuesday already.  I had to think about this layout quite a lot, which is often the case at this great site.  They do challenge me and make me try new things.  A great place to stretch a cardmaker's wings.  :o)

It was a simple layout.  I used the following:

  • White cardstock
  • Light blue cardstock
  • A piece of  white cardstock dry embellished with blue ink
  • Spellbinders Jewel Flowers and Flourishes SR-S5143
  • Memory Box Pippi Butterfly
  • Some green cut out leaves
  • Blue polka dot ribbon
  • "Miss You" stamp - Sorry, don't know the manufacturer

Here is the card for the challenge:





This card is for a dear friend of mine who moved to Alaska last year.  She is one of the sweetest ladies you could ever hope to meet--nobody quite like Kathleen.  She's the best, and I do miss her.

One thing about this card is that the layout and design of the card make it for easy mailing.  You always have to consider those things.

Thank you for stopping by my blog, and as always, God's highest and best to you today and every day!

Blessings,

Ginny B.
