But before that happens I want to share with you a card I made for a special friend, to thank her for her thoughtfulness, kindness and friendship. Sometimes I caught up in my own bees wax that I forget to tell my friends how special they are. I'm making a conscious effort to fix that, starting with this thank you card:
|The background paper is from My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary 6x6 pad... I've had it forever and it's still there!|
|For texture I embossed some green CS with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and lightly sanded it so the dots will show up. I punched one end with X-Cut Daisy punch and to finish a thin pink gingham ribbon tied in a knot and a couple of blue blings.|
|On the inside, enough room for a message to my friend.|
Ideas and inspiration for this card came from: Retro Sketches #69 - sketch; Just Add Ink #170 "Just Add Leaves"; One Stop Craft #231 "For A Friend"; Catered Crop "Dies & Punches"; Challenges 4 Everybody #23 and That Craft Place "Flowers".
Last week was my birthday...I'm 36, again... and I want to share with you a few card that I received from my blog-buddies. I am so very blessed to have the friendship of these talented ladies and I just could not keep it to myself. Below each card is the link to their respective blogs and I hope you can spare a minute to check them out. They truly are masters (mistresses?) of their craft.
Thanks for stopping by, dear friends. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and I'll see you again soon!
