Acts of Kindness

I would have to say that Thank You cards are the ones I need and make the most. There's always someone doing something nice for me and I LOVE to make them a card to tell them how much I appreciate what they've done. I was looking for a simple card. Not so much simple to make though that is always nice!!! I wanted a simple yet elegant looking card. I don't really have issues with brads, buttons or bows and postage when it comes to Thank You cards. I mean, adding the extra 17 cents is absolutely NOT an issue.

I love the elegance of the "Artfully Asian" flower spring stamp. And I wanted something different for the wording. The set does come with a "thank you" stamp but I've used it so much it just didn't appeal to me this time. SO I took out the Stampin' Up! "Define Your Life" set and found the word "kindness" and liked it. I thought it fit well in the corner. I used a piece of decorative paper from the "Bali Breeze" package. I thought it worked well with the black and the Apricot Appeal. But once I got it all put together I though it leaned a bit too much towards Halloween. Maybe I should have used the Basic Gray on the top part. I'll have to give that one some more thought. I like everything else about this card. Plus it was simple to make too!!! That's a nice deal!!!

For the coloring of this card I just used markers. No blender pen. Can you believe that??? LOL I colored the flowers in with Apricot Appeal and then came back with the writing part of the Pumpkin Pie marker and colored in the centers of the flowers and the buds. The leaves were colored in using Sage Shadow and that was it. I sponged the edges with Pumpkin Pie. SO simple and did I mention SO quick!!!

I will be posting some blog candy this week. My blog surpassed the 275,000 mark and it's time to celebrate so stay tuned!!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by,
Wanda

I think it's a very pretty card and fits very nicely together. It looks very fallish.

Such a lovely card!! Now you've shown me how to use a set I had NO intention of buying before! I hadn't even noticed the set cuz the words were so small that I only noticed the price......oh, well, I guess a retired single granny of 5 is made of money-NOT! LOL
