A LONG Overdue Thank You Card!

I have finally found my list of cards I needed to make. I was going by memory and frankly that does not work very well for me anymore!!! It's SO sad.

Hubby and I had gone out to dinner and met some friends who were dining at the same place. They asked us if we wanted to share a table. We thought it was great and we had a wonderful time catching up on things. We need to do that more often.

Anyway, I wanted to send a thank you card and I actually wrote it down on my list and then I misplaced the list. But I did find it and realized I have other cards that have slipped my mind too. UGH. I wish I had a better memory!!!

For this card I used the Stampin' Up! sets "Echo's of Kindness" and "Holiday Blitz." I hadn't put the decorative paper that I had out the day before SO I thought I would use it up. Yup, I actually used up that piece. And I think now I no longer have that print or that color in my stash anymore either. That's a HUGE step for me. It's tough when you get down to your last quarter sheet and don't really want to use it up. But I did and I also survived it too!!! LOL

Once again I used the Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss folder. My favorite!!! I used it twice on this card. Once on the white background piece and again on the solid Almost Amethyst piece. I added a little bow and ribbon alongside the flower. That space just needed a little something. The top needed something too but that is where I put the "thank you!"

This was a very simple card to do. I had stamped the image using black StazOn and I colored it in with markers and a blender pen. One of my favorite techniques. I sponged the edges of the flower and the "thank you" and put it all together! Now to remember to get it out in the mail tomorrow!!! LOL

Thanks SO much for visiting today and don't forget the blog candy!
