Sorry for the lack of posts lately, but there is a direct correlation between lack of posts and lack of stamping time. My life has turned upside down in the last week, hopefully in a good way! I got a new job and I'm moving 120 miles across Southern California. My last day of work is in two weeks and my move is about three weeks away. Of course, I don't have a new place to live or movers lined up yet, and so far all I've managed to pack are three boxes of books! :eek:
What little stamp/craft time I've had has been devoted to getting ready for Virtual Stamp Night on Splitcoast. It just happens to be occurring the weekend before I move! Aaack!
I've been at my current job for 7.5 years, so leaving is going to be difficult. I wanted to make a few thank you cards for some of the special people I've gotten to know in the last few years. Time is limited, so I knew they'd need to be simple. Fortunately, the Target clearance endcaps came to my rescue. I picked up a package of 10 red 4-bar notecards (3 1/2 by 4 7/8ths) and some pale blue envelopes to match. The cards were 48 cents and the envies 58 cents, which will make each pair about 11 cents!
Of course, I came home and had to design a card to go with them. I used some bashful blue paper and stamped the flower image from my new Embrace Life stamp set, then colored in parts of the flowers with my white gel pen. A few snaps and voila! A simple thank you!
