January Ronald McDonald House Card

It's that time of the month again when I volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House. It's my month to design a card and, thanks to the inspiring work of Karen Graff-Povis of Live, Laugh, and Stamp with Karen, I have a bright, cheery card that fits the weather we're having--who can be depressed when it's 60 outside!

I was inspired by Karen's card because it used a color combination I'd been toying with yesterday. I have 2 packages of Barely Banana card stock left over from my Ronald McDonald House Fry Box card--miscalculated how much it would take to make all those "fries"--and so I wanted to put some of that color to use in whatever I designed for this month. Karen's combo is slightly different than mine. I used Real Red, Ballet Blue, Certainly Celery, and Whisper White together with the BB. I loved how she used the new 1.75" circle punch to create a cut-out for the focal image, and I also have the striped RR ribbon in my stash, so her design gave me a starting point. Thanks, Karen!

Jenn - thanks so much for letting me join you at the Ronald McDonald House. I'm planning to come again in Feb. And then we'll figure out which month you want me to design a card - like we talked about I think something with the Build-a-Bears would be fun....
