Sassy Cheer


Happy Friday!!!

I'm horribly behind on some cards...actually sympathy ones. They have got to be thee hardest cards to make...I'm non-traditional in certain card making projects. Can you believe that this "Sassy Cheer" card is a sympathy one? Yes, it is nice and bright and cheery....what could be better? It definitely depends on the recipient...and this is going postal today for a young blogging buddy of mine that recently lost a family member. I'm crossing my fingers that when she opens up the envy that this card will make her smile...

The card base is Stampin' Up Chocolate chip and the oh-so-cute paper is Sassafras Fruit Slice Land...reversible...the scalloped heart band is the flip side of the rainbow design....I could NOT resist the scalloped edge. I picked it up from the fabulous online store, Peacoats & Party Hats. Candice's blog is fabulous...I loved this post with her Haunted Couture Kit.... soooo stinkin' fun! I actually took the time to stitch the fun button onto the American Crafts felt flower...I figure that it will have a better chance going through the USPS that way...

I hope you all have a magnificent weekend...I have a feeling that it is going to be a soggy soccer Saturday for us....
