I just finished completing 47 swap cards for this weekends Spring Sensation Stamp Camp. The theme was Spring cards for any occasion.
As you know when I stamp I often am inspired by the person I will be giving the card to. Ideas come much easier when I think of people and not product. So in designing this swap card I thought of my sweet friend Jennifer who is going to be moving very soon.
Jennifer has been a wonderful customer and friend for the past couple of years. I feel so honored and blessed to have met her and to have had the opportunity to not only stamp with her but also with her lovely mother who comes to visit every so often. Both of them are wonderful crafters with such beautiful hearts.
Whether Jennifer is at a class, bunco or even at the gym where I sometimes run into her, she is someone who always greets everyone with a friendly smile.
For her card I used one of my favorite color combinations of Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo. These colors are bright and vibrant, just like Jennifer's personality.
Do you recognize these flowers? They are from the Jar of Love stamp set. This shows how versatile that set can be as you can create a card without using the jar image at all!
The sentiment on this card comes from the Suite Sentiment stamp set and I think these words perfectly express how I feel about Jennifer.
Right now she's still on the island packing things and preparing for her move to the East Coast. I know I will see her at least one more time but I wanted to take the opportunity at our stamp a stack class this past weekend to surprise her with a lei and card to let her know how much she is loved and will be missed.
I know I won't be the only one to miss her. We all love her very much!
Although she'll be missed, I'm thankful that she will bring her beautiful spirit of Aloha to a new community so more people will get to meet her and discover how special she is.
Aloha Jennifer, you are loved and will be missed.
