Simple Thank You

A SUPER simple card I whipped up and then produced extras of for Thank You notes from my kids for their Valentine's presents from their grandparents.

American Crafts Romance pack of papers made this so easy! Then I just stamped the sentiment and the frame (both Stampin' Up), adhered it, and done! And I think they are pretty cute.

A little bling...

Who doesn't love a little bling sometimes?? I actually really love this card for whatever reason. It was a sketch over at CPS last week and even though I forgot to upload my card on their site, I had a lot of fun making it.

When I first saw the sketch, I thought I was going to have a really hard time. But once I started stamping and getting things laid out it just sort of fell together, just like the sketch is supposed to do!

Another challenge day over at Nichole's blog in celebration of PTI's 2 year anniversary. Here is the card I created for the challenge. I used all PTI stamps, and Stampin Up cardstock and inks since I have all those on hand.

I really like this color combination. I'm sure I'll be using it again. The colors are so happy and fun. Don't forget to visit the blog for your chance to win a year's worth of PTI cardstock!!

In the bag

Have you been over to Nichole's blog for Papertrey Ink? If not, you are missing out. They are doing a bunch of great giveaways in celebration of their 2 year anniversary! You can find the blog here.

Today's giveaway is an embroidered bag & a $100 gift certificate to PTI! In order to enter, you have to alter or embellish some kind of bag and then link it on their blog.

Here is my bag. It's just a white lunch bag that I dressed up with some American Crafts paper, PTI stamps, buttons, and ribbon. Easy peasy!

Just a quick one today

This card literally came together in less than 10 minutes. I usually take the time to thread the buttons, but only had a couple minutes to work on this so I skipped that step. And while I enjoy the more finished look of the threaded buttons, I'm okay with this. My guess is that the intended recipient will not even notice :-)
Have a great day everybody!
