Occasions Alphabet: So Shelli Creative Challenge

The So Shelli Creative Challenge this month is "Thinking of You": any sympathy or condolence cards, hang-in-there cards, you-can-do-it cards . . .whatever. Just a way of reaching out to someone who needs to know that they aren’t alone.

With that in mind I created this card for this challenge (and it was very similar to a card I made for swapping at Convention 2011 which was a few weeks ago in Salt Lake City, Utah). I absolutely love this new alphabet set called "Occasions Alphabet"! I can make up several of these cards to have on hand and then just stamp and punch the saying I need for that particular occasion from this set. I can easily make this card a birthday card by using the "H" is for Happy...hope that's what your birthday is, or a friendship card by using "J" is for JOY...that's what knowing you brings to my life or "F" is for FRIEND...you're one of the best, or "E" if for EVERYTHING...that's what you mean to me....ok, you get the picture, right? Plenty of possibilities from one fabulous stamp set. Check out this stamp set on page 171 of the new Idea Book & Catalog.
