Mr Cardmaker is Black and White with a Pop

Hey guys!

Today I am showing a card I made for my friend Janeen, who is on the job hunt.  I can't think of  a much more Unfun thing to do, so I hope this cheers her up a bit. 

I made her this--

I love the Cuttlebug folder I used.  I swiped the raised portions with my white pigment ink pad and let it dry overnight.  The background is stamped with my Jenny Bowlin receipt stamp, and the sentiment is SU.  The brads make a real impact on all that clockworks, I think.  I added just a pop of pink, and I think it really says  "girl at work."  To me it does, anyway!    And, just to be sure it stays feminine, a little black and white baker's twine bow on the sentiment flag.

So that's it.  I was planning to enter this at Simon Says Stamp, for their challenge, but I missed the deadline.  *SIGH*...
UPDATE!  I am a DOPE!  I did NOT miss the deadline.....Read the WORDS, Richard!!!!
Anyway, I think Janeen will be happy about it.  Who doesn't love snail mail, anyway?

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Thursday!
All Best-


  1. Immensely encouraging and supportive card with the best feminine steampunk appearance. Reminds me of the war time ads with the women, "We can do it!"
    Best of luck to your friend and her job search endeavor. I really love that sentiment and it rings so true.
    LOL...good luck in the SSS challenge too!

A pop of pink...I approve! ;) Seriously what a fantastic card and you are such a great friend to cheer someone up!! Oh I totally had to laugh though....can't tell you how many times I don't read the "fine print"!!

  4. I love this card!! I also am looking for work and I have been using that sentiment for years now! I'm glad to see it as a stamp now.
