The Kindness You Show Has No End

Left:  Stampin' Up!     Right:  Simon Says Stamp
Jon and I are heading down to Ocean City, Maryland this weekend to visit our good friends.  We only get to see them a few times a year, so I'm very excited!  The last time we saw them was in August and the visit was very brief due to a mishap with our Yorkie and another dog...if you'd like to read about that drama - click here.

Our friends were so much help to us the last time we were there.  We will be staying at their home this visit, and wanted to get them a little 'thank you' gift card to a local restaurant they frequent - Fager's Island.  My Thank You card stash was low so I created a few using a new multi-step stamp set I received free with an order from Stampin' Up!  Since I was going to use the same color ink for each step in the process, I decided to test the set out using two different inks:  Stampin' Up! and Simon Says Stamp.  I have to say I prefer the result using Stampin' Up! ink for this technique.  In addition to the flower, I also like the way the greeting on the front of the card came out.  All preference, I guess.  It's nice to have choices.

Paper: White (PTI), Soft Navy (Simon Says Stamp), Lost Lagoon (Stampin' Up!)
Stamps: Lotus Blossom (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Soft Navy (Simon Says Stamp), Lost Lagoon (Stampin' Up!)
