More Thank You's!

I'm always in need of thank you cards. I think I go through more of those than I do birthday cards or maybe even Christmas cards. That one I'd actually have to keep track of to know but it may be VERY close.

This was a fun card to do. A lot of paper piercing but I find that fun and relaxing. You don't have to do a lot of thinking to follow the holes in the template!!!

Now trust me on this one, the pink background isn't as dark in real life. The flash brings out colors more. It's really a lot more subtle.

I used the bird from the Stampin' Up! set "Fun & Fast Notes." In the center of the flower is a green rhinestone brad. It doesn't show up very well here either. I like adding the faux stitching, it gives it a bit more character. I stamped the image with Black Staz On using watercolor paper and I used a blender pen and markers to color the image in. I'm not overly thrilled with the colors. I wanted to use Bordering Blue because I had the Bordering Blue wide grosgrain ribbon and the colors that Scraptitude suggested. Maybe it's just not colors I would normally pick.

All products on this card are Stampin' Up! materials. Click here to find more cards and projects that are made entirely of Stampin' Up! materials.

I will be posting blog candy tomorrow night. I'm getting "stuff" ready for the FABULOUS Stamp Share tomorrow. It's an all day event!!! I'm SO excited to be going to it. It's such a fun time plus there are SO many card samples and business tips, demonstrations (I'm doing one of them and I'll show you my card tomorrow night too!) and we do a Make N Take too. I will also be attending the Shoe Box Swap. I'm SO looking forward to that. I will be taking Sue, my manager's place, she will be attending her son's wedding. Of all days to plan a wedding!! LOL I'm just thrilled to finally get to do the swap. The first time I qualified to be in it my husband was in the hospital so I had to be there with him. And last year I was sick and wasn't able to attend. And get this, this year I didn't qualify!! Murphy's Law. But things seem to have a way of working out don't they? Anyway, I'm SO happy to be able to actually participate in the swap. I can't wait to tell you all about it. Well, I had better get back to getting my "stuff" finished up for tomorrow!

Thank you SO much for stopping by,

I clicked on this card to enlarge it and WOW!! the detail is amazing! I LOVE how you did the faux stitching by skipping every other hole! All that piercing really makes this card. The colors are very spring-like and you did a wonderful job with this card! Enjoy your all day Stamp Share - I cannot wait to see what you've created for that event. Have fun!!!

I love the colors in this. And the shade of pink in the pic is really nice. I like the faux stitching. It adds that little something to the card.
