RAK For A Cause

Here's my RAK to send to the family mentioned in yesterday's post. I started with a light blue base, which is watermarked with swirls if you look really closely. The floral panel is Sketchy Daisies by Stemma, mounted on a textured mustard panel. The same blue is used for the smaller panel across the bottom and the sentiment (All Year Cheer I) is clear embossed onto a Giga Scalloped Oval punched from the same mustard textured cardstock. I pierced around the scallops to add a little something. Ribbon is from SU! grosgrain collection. Simple, simple, but I hope it brings them a smile.

I also finished my swap cards today. But after they were all sealed and ready to be mailed, I realized I forgot one of the layers I was going to add. Oops. They still look nice without it, but that final layer really made them pop. I'm not tearing them all apart to add it in now, though!

After this week of relaxation, I am tired! How can that be? And is it horrible to say that I have not missed work? Tomorrow is my last day to myself, as my hubby and son will be home with me all weekend. I'm hoping to sneak away for some Card Making Day challenges - we'll see if Justin takes a nap Saturday...
