My thoughts are with you (7 of 52)

Today I pulled together a quick card for a friend who didn't have time to go shopping. Look at me turning into the local (free) Hallmark.

I was drawing a complete blank, so I decided to do a quickie web search for some inspiration and came across this sketch from Card Positioning Systems. Sketches are such time savers, particularly when you feel like all your creative juices have dried up and you can't come up with one more thing.

So here is my masterpiece. I hope she likes it.
Supplies used: Paper - Basic Grey Sugared; Stamps - Clearly Wordsworth Comfort Collection, CTMH Felicity; Ink - CTMH Autumn Terracotta, Cocoa, Goldrush, Desert Sand; Ribbon - American Crafts, Offray; Adhesive - CTMH Liquid Glass, Scotch Foam Tape, Tombow Mono Liquid; WRMK Corner Chomper

Catch you later,
TJ

Tracy if you created the card above you need to open your own business. You could name it "Let cards do the Talking" What do you think? Keep on rolling them girl good job!

Okay, Miss Hallmark, looks like you need to start charging for your cards. This is much better than anything your friend could buy from the store!

You "hope" she likes it? Seriously? I'm sure she'll LOVE it! It's fabulous!!! Because I spent so much time doing craft shows over the past year, my friends know it's a business for me to earn my "fun money", so they order from me now and again. Nothing wrong with friends coming to you instead of Hallmark! ;-)
