Getting Back to Work

My parents left this afternoon so that they could split up the 12-hour drive home over two days. We had a good visit; not perfect or without its moments, but still good, nonetheless.

This afternoon I was able to get back to work on a project that needs my attention. A gal I work with is getting married in September and mentioned that she wanted "Save the Date" postcards to send to some friends and family in advance of the wedding invitations. I told her I could help, and here's what we've come up with:

The postcard is a combination of printed text and stamped images and letters from the Jumbo Outline Alphabet (initials) and the Mark the Date and Full Calendar sets. The bride's colors are red and brown, and the postcard reflects this. I had a horrible time getting the text positioned, even with the HUGE help (thanks, Heather!) of a friend with tech savvy, but I think the end result is worth the trouble.

I had to use the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig extensively on this to make sure that everything was placed exactly where it needed to be...and straight! If she approves the proof, I'll be making 50 of these before the month's end. Then I'll be helping her design invitations.

My order comes tomorrow from SU! that contains the stamps, etc. I'm going to highlighting at my SAS on Friday, so stay tuned for photos of freshly designed cards!
