Thank You

I needed a thank you card so decided to use one of the new sets in the 2010/2011 Idea Book & Catalog called "Just Believe". There's quite a lot of work in this one, although it still looks relatively simple. The flowers are clear embossed on Very Vanilla cardstock and then brayered with Crumb Cake ink. I love the look of it. The 'thank you' frame was also clear embossed on vanilla and brayered. It's trimmed and popped up on dimensionals.

Stamps : Just Believe
Ink : Versamark, Early Espresso
Cardstock : Very Vanilla, Riding Hood Red, Not Quite Navy

Daddy's Birthday Card

It's my Dad's birthday next week so I made this card for him this morning. It's not going to make it by Wednesday, but at least he knows it's on its way! And thanks to my sister, Sarah, for talking to me on the phone the whole time I made it ~ it made the time pass wonderfully :)

Maybe Mum will show it to him on the 18th! Thanks, Mum!
