Thank You’s


I haven't posted anything for quite a while, and unfortunately the thank you cards I am posting are for a sad time..........


Recently Kim's brother Jason passed away after losing a 4 year battle with cancer. I have made some cards for my mother-in-law to send to some of the special people in her life to says "thanks".... and I need around 16 for myself to send.


Here are 6 that I've made for my own use.....(I did two of each).....




This first one is probably very similar to many cards you may have seen floating around cyberspace.... using the Sale-a-bration Set "Punch Bunch" and the "2-step Owl Punch".


I've also used some brads and the 1 ¾" Circle and 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch. The pattern paper is "Woodland Walk" and the cardstock is "Crumb Cake", "Very Vanilla" and "Chocolate Chip".



 

This card was made using "Inspired by Nature" and the free hostess set "After Thoughts". I used "Regal Rose", "Rich Razzleberry" and "Whisper White" cardstock. Ink colours used are "Old Olive", "Rich Razzleberry", "Regal Rose" and "So Saffron". I didn't use the ink pads... I used my Markers so I could colour the flower image in different colours, and could colour only part of the greeting stamp (the greeting stamp actually says "Thanks I love being spoiled")




 

For this card I have used the "Every Moment" stamp set, inked in "Stazon" and then watercoloured in "Perfect Plum", "Concord Crush", "So Saffron" and "Soft Suede" using my ink pads. The card stock is "Perfect Plum" and "Concord Crush", and I've stamped on "Whisper White". The pattern paper is the "In Colour Pattern Stack" and Concord Crush Ribbon.


I've still got more to make, so hopefully I'll get these made and up here in the next few days.... oh – and I have picture of my renovation – MY CRAFT ROOM – to show you!


Til next time....

PS – Marlene – none of these are the card I'll be giving YOU – I'll keep that one (& Jodie's, Joy's and Tahnee's) a secret......!
