Thinking of you

 The idea for this card came to me when I was thinking about the colors for the Pretty Palette #68, which I thought were saffron, red and black.  Saffron is  definitely NOT a color I am comfortable using, so I was trying to think what I could possible do with it when I thought of Winnie-the-Pooh.  Then, I checked and discovered the the colors were saffron, red and chocolate brown.  But hey, it still works and maybe even a little bit better since the brown is not as harsh as black would have been.  I have had this stamp for a very long time and don't know why I don't use it more often; it's so cute.  If you know anything about Pooh, you know that he is a "bear of very little brain" and thinking is something that is difficult for him.  That's why the look of concentration.
I was trying to create an "all-occasions" card, so I finished off the inside with this sentiment: "thinking of you".  So, if you read the sentiments together, it reads "Think, think, think . . . thinking of you."  Cute huh?  I thought so, but I might be a little bit biased.

Pretty Palette #68--saffron, red, chocolate
