Road To Success

Card Front

Sentiment Inside
Over the weekend I was a VERY busy stamper. We have a new card "release" coming up (March 1st), so the pressure is on. Mostly, we make b-day cards but we do try to have a good variety available for our customers so that means sometimes I have to crack the whip and start getting bossy - telling Heidi what to make and when. For the March 1st release we need b-day cards (we'll have 20 new designs); Thinking Of You; Thank You; Get Well; Congrats/Good Luck; and Sympathy cards. We still have plenty of Wedding, Baby, Retirement and Encouragement-types of cards. I'm hoping our customers will be impressed with the new card designs and they'll be eager to buy, Buy, BUY!!!
So here's one of my new designs.....this fits the "Congrats" requirement. I thought something kind of goofy and fun would be good. There's really subtle sponging on the front of the card (the clouds and along the "road"). I'm happy with it - I hope a potential customer is too!!
