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.
