In My Thoughts…
I’ve been designing for UStamp with Dawn and Friends for six months now, and it has become like a family, really. Each event gets better and better, and it’s all down to the energy and effort we put in as a team.
But no-one puts in more than the owner of the site herself, Dawn Rapsas. Today I got an e-mail to say her brother is in hospital, critically ill and in urgent need of a liver transplant. Now, I’m in New Zealand, and they’re in New Jersey, so there is little I can do to help but pray. And I can also make a card, as this is what we do!
I’ve used the sketch from Stamping 411 as my springboard tonight – here:
I’ve tipped in on it’s side, and come up with this:
If you look closely at the stamped image, you’ll see it has been done twice – first in Sahara Sand, and the second time in Early Espresso. This is to give it a shadowy effect. I got the inspiration to try this myself from Paula Woods this afternoon; I’ve been meaning to try it for ages, and tonight seemed as good a time as any.
Of course, I’ve stamped the inside of the card, and the envelope:
We’re thinking of you and praying for your brother, Dawn. Big hugs from us here in Auckland, New Zealand. xxoo
