Wow, it's been a while since I posted a project :( I apologize but it's just been so busy here trying to get our flooring done. The in floor heating went in the bedroom over the weekend and now we are onto the tiling. We will then be on to the family room next. We are doing most of the work ourselves to try and keep the costs down some so that's where I have been even though I would much rather be crafting..... I will keep my fingers crossed that this all gets done in the next week or two :)
I did sneak in a little time to craft, yeah!
My card base is 4 3/4 x 4 3/4. I added a small blue mat on the bottom, cut at 2 1/4 x 4 3/4. I layered a white mat that was cut at 2 x 4 3/4 which I embossed both with the divine swirls folder. The white mat has a border that I added using a punch from Recollections. I then added a fun bow with crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl JAM~colors antique white and daffodil which was made using their amazing bow maker. Super easy and so fun!
The pretty fabric flowers are from Recollections that I found at Michael's on clearance for 2.00 for a jar of them. The leaves are from Spellbinders~Foliage die set which I distressed with Tim Holtz-old paper. The
oval is from Spellbinders~Beaded Ovals die and the smaller oval is a SU punch. The Thank You sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping ~Heartfelt Gratitude. One of my favorite sets!
I wanted to play in a few challenges that I miss playing in. It was perfect because I needed a thank you card for a special friend who spent so much time helping me the day of the flood. I will be entering this in a challenge over at Go Fish ~Challenge #20-Thank you card using your favorite color (which one of mine is blue) BTW, I am really missing you guys at Go Fish!!
