Try Stampin' On Tuesday: Thanks So Much!

I have recently discovered the sketches over at Try Stampin' On Tuesday.  I raved about them so much, I think they felt obligated to ask me to be a guest designer!!??  I'm on their blog today!!  Here's the card that I put together with their sketch...

Thanks so much!
I had a very specific need for this card.  We have had an intern pastor at our church for the last year.  She is a wonderful woman who not only has the calling to go through seminary and internships, but is also unexpectedly raising her 2-year old granddaughter.  She has handled it all with graciousness and faith.  This next weekend is her last weekend and I want to thank her.  The plan for this card was a little sentiment in the bottom right (as in the sketch), that said something like "you will be missed".  Do I have a stamp like that in my extensive collection?  Nope.  Lots of  "I miss you's", but she hasn't left yet, so I don't miss her yet!!  There seems to be a gap in my stamp collection that I am just going to HAVE to shop for!
  • Stamps: Stampin' Up Papillon Potpourri, Watercolor Trio (sentiment)
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Crumb Cake, Midnight Muse, Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit
  • Accessories: Stampin' Up Butterfly Punch, gems colored with Copics, My Minds Eye Indie Chic twine, Quickutz die (it just says "C-0163-FRAME" on it - that will make it tough to find if you want it - sorry!)

Kim, this is so elegant and beautiful, I don't know where to begin. You did an awesome job with the colors and that die cut frame is fabulous. I'm sure this will be very appreciated by your church's intern pastor. Come to think of it, I don't have a "you will be missed" seniment either but can really see how thiat would be a good stamp to have. Let me know if you do end up finding one in your shopping adventures. :) Have a great day today!

Welcome to the DT this week!!! You do such a wonderful job! I like that scrolly thing and it being red really "pops" off the card. Beautiful!

Great job Kim. Love the colours and the red really pops out at you, but then the yellow butterfly calms it down. Thanks for being with us as a designer this week at Try Stampin on Tuesday.
