Switching gears from Monday's soft and subtle sympathy card, today is all bright and cute and happy. It's a birthday card for a friend at my former workplace. She's not a flower kinda gal, but she does love dogs. Her own is a black Lab mix. Hence, the black dog.
I colored with Copics, cut out the dog and balloons, and popped up on foam mounting tape. The dog is a Bugaboo digi -- Pup Balloons. The "hey" word is a triple layer of SU's Tempting Turquoise, and the green is the very soft and pretty, retired, but still loved SU Gable Green.
I've been at the old stamps again, too, and I have to say it's been a pleasure. It did me a world of good to clear out my stamp room. Seriously, can one ever use an acre of stamps? Is it enough to simply own them? Two that I saved are in the background of this card -- a Hero Arts brush stroke stamped called Abstract Art, and an Ink Splatters stamp which I believe is D.O.T.S., but I cannot read the label clearly. There are plenty of brush strokes and splats and splatters on the market today, but these and a couple others I saved will do me just fine for now.
I send birthday cards to all my former coworkers, and since I don't know all their addresses, I mail them to the workplace. I like the thought of giving them happy mail in the middle of a very stressful day. Whew, I'm glad I'm out of there, but I still have a great fondness for the folks I spent so many years alongside. Have a good day!
