I’ve had a busy last few days since taking over as the volunteer church secretary. Not only being new to the office, we are getting a new interim pastor since we have been without one for several months, having various ones filling in. It’s going to be good, though. I’m not complaining.
However, I needed to play a little. I brought out a pad of “Fancy Pants” paper to see what might inspire me. I know we needed more “Thinking of You” cards for the Card Ministry so that was the first one I made.
This one, a single layer of “Fancy Pants” patterned paper on a white card, was stamped and doodled on. I stapled a ribbon piece on it, colored the image with SU markers and called it done. It is for a woman at church who is having some major issues and I want to let her know I am wishing her well.
I completed this one before but couldn’t post it until after it was delivered. It is for my good friend and I know she looks at my blog so I waited. I used alcohol inks on glossy cs, cut out with a Spellbinders die, made the envelope from the punch board she gave me. I used a SU stamp on the card. The envelope was stamped with Fun Stampers Journey stamps. To the right I have a photo of the way I embellished the inside with a die, a duplicate to the one on the front, each with a green ribbon laced through. The card is 5×7 inches.
I feel better now. It’s nice to play and let your creativity go. Simple, but rewarding!
