my contact card

Remember when I showed you THIS? Well, I got the idea of asking for contact cards from my friend Anne. I was pretty open about how my contact card was to be made and I gave everyone about 6 weeks to get them done (did you get your done?) but Anne was a bit more specific. And, her contact card is much is ATC size. Yikes! I'm not very good at ATC size stuff but I really wanted to participate so I said yes. I've had to put this to the side for about a month (or was it procrastinate for a month?) but I pulled it out on Monday and gave myself a deadline of having it done and in the mail by Monday the 19th. Here it is...ready to go...probably tomorrow! Yay!
There was a line in Anne's instructions that says "this card is all about you for me." I thought okay, she needs to know all about me so the "I Am" side was born. I used PaperTrey Ink's designer paper and card stock along with the Boxes, Bags, and Tags set that has the little flowers in it. I printed the "I Am" on my computer. Some PTI Sweet Blush Twill ribbon completes that side.
On what I am calling the back side is my personal information. I again used PTI card stock and a little trim stamp from the Faux Ribbon set to complete the information area. Looking at it I just realized I should have done this side a little different but there is no going back now! Overall...I love this card. The colors, the "I Am" section and the simplicity is really all me. Now, finally, I can start making other cards without feeling this project calling me! Pointing and Laughing

I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday and I'll see you again soon!
