Stamp-A-Stack Candidate!

This card would be perfect for a quick Stamp-A-Stack.  It was very simple to do and it didn't take much time at all.  This was not the card I had in mind when I started but I still like how it turned out.  

Last Friday I was at a beading get together and one of the gals who had surgery on the 6th was there.  I had been meaning to send her a get well card and I was glad to see her there but yet felt bad that I had not sent her a card yet!  Part of the reason was I didn't have much time to work on a card and also, I lost her mailing address.  Today I found the address and today I made her a card.  And tomorrow it will go out in the mail.  So much for yesterdays brag session about being ahead of the game.  I think I need to learn to start using some of the cards in my stash.  There has got to be over 500 of them.  I'm sure I can part with one when I need it.  It's not like I don't make other cards to replace it!  

So enough about that.  I will tell you what I used to make this card.  The base of the card is a half sheet of Pacific Point.  That's a color I don't use too much of but when I get it with the Marina Mist I am SO enthralled with it that it makes me want to make more cards with the two colors.  My Marina Mist layer is cut 4-1/8" x 5-3/8".  The white layer on top is dry embossed and measures 4" x 5-1/4".  The words came from the Delightful Dozen set and punched out using the 1-1/4" circle punch.  I think that punch is one that I use the most out of all of the punches I have.  Ok, that and the 1-3/8" and the round scallop punch.  They all go together to make the layered circles I have in the photo.  You can't do one without the other when making those layers!

And there you have it, a very sweet, clean and simple get well card.  It would also be great as a make n take or even a shoe box swap!  As long as you can find words to fit in that 1-1/4" circle you are good to go.  And speaking of going, I have to run.  I am working on a VERY fun project and I'm hoping I will be done with it this weekend.  It really isn't a long project but it is for me because I don't work on it for very long amounts of time.  I have too many other things going on so I pick away at it and then when I'm VERY close to being done I just sit down and finish it!  I'm hoping that day will be Saturday evening after I get back from teaching at the bead shop.  I need to show you my latest creation too.  I'll get that set up to photograph too.  My poor camera is having issues.  Well, it's not the camera, it's the lens.  There is a dot on the lens that appeared when we were up in Duluth.  I'm afraid the wind may have blown a piece of dust into the lens.  How else could it have gotten in there?  It's all sealed up.  Or so I thought it was.  The camera is a bit old but I'm going to hang onto it and just get it cleaned.  It's not like I'm going to be using it for my prize winning photos!!! LOL  I just want to take pictures of my "stuff" and I don't want dots in it.  I suppose I could photo shop the dots out but I don't want to spend the time doing that either.  I just want the lens cleaned and I'll be happy!

Thank you ever SO much for visiting today!
