Most of you probably know by now that our CEO and co-founder of Stampin’ Up!, the wonderful Shelli Gardner, had a severe horseback riding accident the other day. I have been deeply affected by this, and by her dear husband’s account of the accident. Here is a link to what Sterling wrote yesterday on her blog: Shelli’s blog Please keep Shelli and her horse Kadie in your thoughts and prayers. They are both going to have a long recovery and need all the positive energy we can send her way.
I missed the mail Saturday so now with the long weekend, my card won’t go out until Tuesday.
Maybe you can help me decide which one to send? I made this first card after seeing the talented Brian King’s card he made for Shelli…. it is the sketch for this week’s challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches, do you ever need some help deciding on a card idea? So do I, when I’m stumped, I head over to see what “sketch” ideas there are out there. Maybe you’ll want to check it out: Freshly Made Sketches Blog
this was the original card sketch:
But, then I thought my card looked too similar to Brian’s since I used crisp cantaloupe, crumb cake and very vanilla together, so then I made another card. This one was inspired by my friend and downline Jamie DeCanio’s card she made and posted on our demonstrator group facebook page. I changed it up a little bit, but what do you think of the painter’s tape technique? And I am now in love with these swing cards! How super easy to put some cards together very quickly. Tomorrow I’m going to share 7 cards my sister and I put together in less than an hour. Super fast and easy with this new thinlit die set. It is jam packed full of cute little dies for other “parts”.
So what one do you think I should send to Shelli? I kept the cards simple, flat and easy to mail to Utah.
