Sending Sunshine

My friend who got me started in this stamping world (and then moved away leaving me with no one to stamp with), called this morning. She's away from all of her stamping stuff, and has been for too long, while her husband is doing military training. It's pouring buckets where she's at, and the kids are cooped up inside, and she can't even spend the day stamping. So she asked what I'd be making today and I told her I'd make a card for her. Well, this is my second one. The first one turned out awful! I was trying to do it for a color challenge, and it looked really blah, and then I smudged ink all over at the very end. I emailed it to her, for a good laugh, but there was no way I was posting it here! I "cased" this fun card from Split Coast Stampers. My friend loves Little Pieces, and the first time I saw that card, I knew I'd have to do something similar with it. It's almost Friday....woo-hoo!

I would have liked to have seen the "oops" card. I bet it had some redeeming qualities :-)

I saw this same card on SCS and thought it was such a cute idea. I also have the Little Pieces set but don't use it often.

I'm sure your friend will appreciate this card.

I am so lucky to have you as a friend - not to mention that fact that you are a far better stamper/card maker than I am and I get tons of inspiration from what you do!
