A card for Carol H. ~ WSC 63

I got this weekend sketch challenge from Beate John's blog and wanted to give it a try.

Sunday night at the end of my monthly team meet up my fellow SU! demonstrator, and friend, got a distressing call about a family member and ran out of here very quickly. Since ~ she has not been on email and is not accepting calls on her cell phone. I'm guessing something is very wrong, and I'm concerned. Carol H., if you are reading this, know that I have heard from many of my team members wanting to know if everything is okay with you. Check in with us and pop an email to the group, okay?

Anyway, I felt compelled to stamp something, but sometimes when you need a good design, the feeling just doesn't come. In step's Beate's sketch challenge, and I thought I would try to put something together. I stamped this for carol today, and used the chit chat rub on's. I'll put it in the mail with a prayer that everything will turn out okay for her and her family.

The ribbon was WAY too bright for my taste, so I gave it a bit of color with a more mustard marker. Maybe I should have used chocolate taffeta! It's so hard to stamp for another stamper!

There's some pressure there! I don't normally stamp with retired sets very often, but this one fits my mood at the moment (and the scallop square punch) so well, I decided "what the heck" and went for it.

So, Carol, it's not just me. Of course, I'm thinking of you and here for you. But so are about 15 other people! Hugs my friend. I hope to hear from you soon.

Your card is really nice. The set you used is not retired though, only on the dormant list.
