Hello, Stamping Friends! I have a card today created for a good friend of mine. No challenges, no swaps...just a personalized card. I LOVE when I can do that! I have known my friend, Mark, for almost the entire time I have lived here in Danville. He plays guitar at church for the more contemporary choir. I have sung with the choir for most years, but I would take a break for one reason or other. But Mark rarely misses a Sunday, plus he often helps with special prayer services or kids' programs. He played guitar for my wedding, and my husband and I sang in the choir when Mark married his wife Brenda. Our music is rather mild, but we often hear Mark before Mass messing with some classic rock tune! Well, Mark had knee replacement surgery this past week, so he will be out of commission for a while. I decided to make a Get Well card, and my Extreme Guitar guy was the perfect stamp choice! It may be retired, but I paired it with these stars and splotches from "Extreme Elements" still available from Stampin' Up. My card base is basic black. I added a layer of lucky limeade, stamped with stars then embossed with the square lattice impressions folder. I placed a layer of basic gray pattern paper on an angle, added 2 silver brads, and popped it up with dimensionals. The Extreme Elements were stamped in limeade and basic gray on whisper white, and the guitar guy is stamped in basic black, then heat embossed. More dimensionals since this card will be hand delivered later today! The sentiment is from Delightful Dozen, punched out with a circle and layered over a basic black pattern star. The star punch is a bit small...and retired...guess I should buy the star dies next!!
The chor members signed the card...and I think Bruce may try to make some food to deliver with the card. Hand-crafted card...homemade dinner...should make Mark feel better, dontcha think?
