It's a Stretch Thank You Card!!

I just love this Stampin' Up! set "It's a Stretch!" There's 4 stamps in the set. There's a Christmas stocking, a cake on a stand, a tree in a stand and this vase. The vase is the only one I've used so far. I know, I know. I REALLY should try to use all the images in a set at least once!!! I have a lot of sets like that. And SO sad to say I have a few sets I haven't even used yet. But they are put together!!! Oh and there are a couple that aren't even put together. I just need to find some time to play with them all before they retire!!! Though the retired part hasn't stopped me yet!!! Maybe I should say "I need to play with them before "I" retire!!!" LOL

This card is for a very special friend of mine and I'm hoping she gets it before she reads about it on my blog!!! I mailed it out on Tuesday so I'm hoping that she already has it.

I had run across a partially started card using this wonderful "Candy Lane" decorative paper and I just knew who I was going to share my last bits of this paper with!!! I need to order more and of course I forgot to. UGH!!! Or did I? I'll know by the end of the week!!! But as memory serves me (like it really serves me, it's eluded me more and more lately!!!) I don't think I ordered any!!!

The "Thank You" is from one of my very favorite Stampin' Up! sets "Holiday Blitz."

It was a simple card to make. I colored in the flower with a blender pen and Riding Hood Red ink. The vase was colored in using Bashful Blue and the blender pen. The center of the flower is from the YoYo Yellow marker and the leaves are from the Mellow Moss marker. I sponged the edges with Riding Hood Red and it was ready to assemble.

Isn't it just a sweet looking card?? I'm sure she will LOVE it!! Sorry about the crooked photo. If you tilt your head to the left it doesn't look as bad!!! LOL Did you really do it???? LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Beautiful card! I think I might need this set and don't worry, I have plenty of sets like yours too. My goal this year is to get a lot of uninked stamps inked!
