How cute is this little card? I used the March Stamp of the Month: A Little Everything for the sentiment. It is so great for EVERY occasion! This stamp set is available exclusively this month only, March 1-31, 2010. Contact me to order the stamp or to learn how to get it FREE!
I made this card especially for my mom, who had surgery a few weeks ago after breaking her shoulder in Mexico! Yikes! Fortunately, the surgery was done in the states, Tampa, to be exact. The arm/shoulder was broken in three places and she ended up with several pins and a plate in her arm as a result of the surgery. I have been sending her a handmade card here and there to lift her spirits as she recovers. I remember once when someone sent me a handmade card, I was so touched. I just imagined the time and effort she spent (Rachel Keehn!) and I still have the card! I hope this little card lifts my mom's spirits and lets her know we are thinking of her all the way over here in Texas.
If you are planning on attending ScrapHappy Saturday, this card will probably be one of several I feature in the card class. The card class will be offered for a minimal price, probably $5 and we will make 6 cards or so. If you are interested, let me know!
Also, wanted to point out the custom stamp (from CTMH) that says "Handmade with Love, by Jill Kaale" that I stamp on the reverse of every card I make. These custom stamps are great! You can have one made with any name or sentiment you like, you can select the font and a graphic as well! This one was just $12.95 and I will use it forever. And, the best deal is that a 1" x 3-1/2" acrylic block is included in the price! Makes a great gift! See page 87 of the current catalog for more details or visit my website to order one of your own! http://jillk.myctmh.com/
