Cards for a Cause


The blog 'I Heart 2 Stamp' is offering some great blog candy. All you have to do is send her a blank all occasion or birthday card to be entered in the drawing. You can read all about it here: http://iheart2stamp.com/2009/01/08/new-year-new-look-and-lots-of-blog-tart-goodness-for-you/
I made a birthday card using the retired Stampin Up! set 'Thing of Beauty'. My cardstock colors are white, So Saffron, and Regal Rose. The designer paper is Basic Grey. The sentiment is from Inkadinkdo. The embellishments are primas, brads, Martha Stewart Wedding Brads, and the Martha Stewart Scalloped Lace Border Punch. I sponged the edges of the card with Antique Linen Distress Ink to 'age it' a bit. the image was colored with Copic Markers.
I start a part-time job at a Fabrics and Crafts today. I'm nervous, but so excited. I haven't worked in the 'Paid' workforce for over twenty years, so this is definitely a new experience for me. I'm excited to be working for a great company and being around all that crafty product all the time! I just hope most of my paycheck doesn't go to purchasing new 'toys'. LOL! Have a great day!

  4. what a pretty card. All the details you added really coordinate well the image.

    I don't think I could work at Joanns. Too much temptation! My paycheck each week would be gone.
