I attended a local scrapbook convention in February 2007 with my girlfriends Kaye, Dora, and Jackie. There was an SU! consultant there doing make-n-take tidbits. I made this "y o u" at her booth. I came across it when I was going through my SU! scraps bag (to make the cards from yesterday's post.) I put it on my scrap table, hoping it would "speak" to me. I decided on a "happy 4 you" sentiment. I used my QK "happy" and a pink Bazzill cs scrap. I took a scrap of green SU cs and stamped it with versamark and my SU! polka dot stamp. Then I used my QK Tangerine font w/ shadow for the "4". I ran a scrap of white cs through the Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder and added a DCWV mini brad. I grabbed another scrap of pink Bazzill cs and used my Fiskars scallop border punch. Lastly dimensionals for the "y o u". Done.
A question for you: I spent almost an hour on this card for the satisfaction of using the "y o u" up. I did consider just tossing it. My question is this, would you have tossed it and not spent so much time on one card? It is more time & cost effective for me to mass produce; but sometimes I do enjoy a challenge :) I'm not crazy about this card in general, but my younger customers will surely like it.
