Finally, a new post!!

I made this card for a co-worker, whose father passed away four years ago today.  Actually, her soccer team wanted to buy a card, but I offered to make it instead.  I knew a sympthay card, per se, was not the way to go, so I wanted to more of a "thinking of you" theme, so I found this rub-on and designed it around that. 


I used a rub-on I had from years ago, DCWV Rustic Stack, SU blush blossom, and MTC to make the buckle. I just took a tag shape, and added in the slots (rectangles made reeeeeally small), and put the ribbon through. The ribbon and stamps are all SU also, and I used the dollar ink spots from Michaels for the inking. I intentionally kept it really simple on the inside (very plain and no mat) because 40 girls need to sign this thing!


Overall, the card is 6x9, so I made it pretty big, too!  Thanks for visiting today, and I am really going to try to get back into the swing of crafting.  Getting home at 8:30 every night this week has not helped!  Ugh....
