I just want to thank you all so much for your Happy birthday wishes!! I really appreciated each and every one! : ) Those who know me best know I love my birthday!! really love it! I am blessed with a husband and friends who put up with my goofiness about my birthday and bend over backwards to make my day perfect! this year was no exception. You know what this means... I have thank you cards to make!!
|I created these buttons by cutting two each from white card stock and then just stamping them. This is definitely a more postal friendly variation! : )|
Here are a few that I've finished so far. I'm slightly delayed because as my birthday WEEK continues I've been busy with friends and family continuing my celebration! LOL This weekend I have a VIP visitor keeping me busy but I'm sneaking away to post these cards. There will be more later in the coming week : )
This series of cards were created using the PTI Button Boutique stamp set and coordinating dies. I have posted cards from this set previously but those were more of a Vintage feel. I wanted to try this set with some bright cheery fabric from my stash and I really like how they turned out.
I started with lots of white! and did some embossing for a clean fresh look. I cut thin strips of my fabric and gathered them to make a ribbon like trim. As I was out in blogland I learned about a challenge at Sentimental Sundays blog for a challenge to use fabric on your card. A perfect fit for these cards so I will be entering that challenge for the first time. : ) Be sure to hop over and check out what others have done with this challenge : )
My first card design is from the challenge blog at Mojo Monday! I LOVE the Mojo Monday challenge blog and all the wonderful inspiration I can glean there. Please check it out you re sure to be inspired as well. : )
These cards bring my total to 64 cards created in my personal goal to make 100 cards by July 16th! : ) I am offering BLOG CANDY!. All you need do to have a chance to win is comment on this post : ) See all the details HERE.
Well I best get back to my company. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend and are having the opportunity to get inky!! : )
