In Dire Need

Today while I was in my workroom cleaning and organizing I remembered I was in dire need of "Thank You" cards. I never seem to have enough of those. So I turned on the tv, to a channel that had commercials so I could work during the program and catch the gist of it and I'd do a little organizing during the commercials. It worked out just fine. I did manage to get the thank you cards I needed done. And as soon as I'm done posting this I need to make a sympathy card. SO sad. My aunt died, she was 91. She was the oldest of 10 and my dad was the youngest. He died almost 2 years ago at the age of 73. She was the last of the 10 too. SO I do need to quick type this up and get that card made.

The card I made today was simple and fun. I used the Cuddlebug folder for the background. I used the "Priceless" set by Stampin' Up! For the remainder of the card. I cut one inch strips of the decorative paper and layered it on top of a 1 1/4" strip, tied a bow around the layers and taped it in place on the card. I had stamped the "So Kind" words before I used the Cuddlebug. I did one plain and the stamp didn't want to cover over the bumps very well so it was best to stamp first and then emboss. The butterfly was done using Lovely Lilac ink and punched out using the 1 3/8" punch and then I punched a round scallop using the Lovely Lilac card stock. I added some Dazzling Diamonds to the butterfly and to the "*" between the So and Kind words. It doesn't show up very well in the picture. You can click on the photo to enlarge it but don't look too close, it's not perfect!!!

Thank you for stopping by and good luck on the second chance blog candy drawing.
