Hey Friend, Cardabilities #80, CTD253

Hello!  I'm back to my blog after a pretty tough week for me and my family.  Before I get to the reveal of my card today, I just wanted to thank everyone who was kind enough to offer heartfelt condolences on the death of my Dad.  The outpouring of love and sympathy from people I have never even met is truly humbling and I am reminded again what wonderful people are part of this world-wide stamping community.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Now on to my card for today that features one of the cute robots from Crazy Circuits and a sentiment from Stackem' High.  The layout of my card is based on the Cardabilities sketch and the colors from Color Throwdown.

I think it's been a while since I did some sewing on a card so I dragged out my Janome mini.  I wasn't feeling the scallops on the sketch graphic, so I thought a zig zag stitch would be a good compromise to add some visual interest.

Short and sweet for me today.  I'm still feeling my way around my stamp room after such a long absence.  But thanks for stopping by!

Stamps:  Crazy Circuits, Stackem' High (The Alley Way Stamps)
Accessories:  Argyle embossing folder, Dimensionals (SU)

Sweet card in such fun colors. Love the zig-zags instead of the scallops; it adds fun texture and dimension. Great card.

And my most sincere sympathies in the loss of your dad. He'll always be with you, of this I'm sure.
