My Thinking of You stamp from Stampin' Up! came in handy today...

Good Monday afternoon My Stamping Friends, Today I'm sharing a card that I made this morning in my brand new-to-me crafting space. It was sooooo great to sit down at my desk again and be able to have everything I need want at my fingertips. I'm still waiting for just the right file cabinet to appear and I need to get a curtain to contain my mess conceal the storage under my workdesk, and get some more cork boards to display card samples, a few other minor things but I'm feeling like its done and that makes me so happy.

Anyway, this morning I made this lovely card for a friend and dropped it in the mail.  Hopefully she'll get it tomorrow and it will brighten her day.  It was my RAC (Random Act of Cards) for someone that I think needed a little lift today. Have you heard of RAC yet? Basically, you hand deliver or mail out cards randomly to brighten someones day. Its a great way to spread a little cheer by using your cards.

and Window Frames framelits from Stampin' Up!

For this card I used Rich Razzleberry #115316 for the base and some of the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper #127540 (which I got for FREE during Sale-A-Bration just for ordering $50 in merchandise) for the front layer. I then inked up the Just Thinking single stamp #129940 and stamped on whisper white cardstock #100730 and cut out the image on my Big Shot #113439 using the Window Frames Collection framelits #129021. I added a ribbon and bow made with the whipsper white organza ribbon #114319. I attached the Just Thinking sentiment to the front layer with dimensionals #104430 and the front of the card was finished.  Sorry for the color variances in the two photos of the card. It was a real pain to take a photo of the inside of the card for some resason.

For the inside, I started with a layer of whisper white card stock and used my Rich Razzleberry marker #120970 to ink up just one part of the Just Thinking stamp #129940 and stamped that on the bottom left of the inside of the card. Then I added a small piece of the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper #127540 to finish it off. I think it turned out well and I really think she is going to appreciate the card.

Have a great day and make sure to tune in tomorrow for photos of my new stamping space. I can't wait to show you how it looks.
