Gift Thank You Cards

Friday, March 30, 2012

Hello Everyone, I hope you had a wonderful week.  I had a very busy one.  My best friend's daughter's wedding shower is tomorrow and I have been busy making these thank you cards.  I made a box for these cards to go in, but there were too many cards to fit into the box.  I remembered I ordered these clear boxes that you can put cards in and walla, here they are.  I made 20 in all.  I used this old Stampin Up "Thank You" stamp.  I can't remember what set it came with, but I thought it was nice and fancy for a wedding gift.  Well, that's all for now.  Check back later for some more of my creations.  I have plenty to share with you, I just have to find some time to post them.


This is the clear box I put the 20 cards in.

Recipe:
Paper:  SU Wisteria Wonder, Concord Crush, 80 lb. White cardstock
Stamp:  SU Thank You (not sure what set it came from)
Ink:  SU Concord Crush
Accessories: SU ribbon, Spellbinders small and large square

Cheers

Happy Tuesday everyone, what happen to our nice warm weather?  Today was a very nice and sunny day, but it was cold.  I had to turn my fireplace on for a bit to warm up.  Let's see what tomorrow brings.  Today I have another birthday card I wanted to share with you.  I wanted to try something different so I made a tri-fold card.  The image is a digi-stamp by DigiStamp Boutique, a company from the United Kingdom.  They have wonderful clear and digi-stamps, check their website out if you have never seen their products.  Well that's all for today, check back again soon.  I have lots of cards to post.   



This is a tri-fold card.

Punch Art - Dog

Saturday, March 24, 2012

Happy Saturday Bloggers!  I hope your weekend has gotten off to a wonderful start.  I am trying to catch up on some of my projects this weekend.  This punch art card is for a punch art card swap that I decided to join.  I did a "Thank you" card swap and I was a little disappointed with the cards I received, so I hope this punch art swap is better.  I guess one doesn't know what they are getting into until you receive the final product.  I hope whoever get's my cute little dog will enjoy it.  Punch art is new to me, if you saw a couple of post before this one you saw my cute little cat.  Here is my card and have a wonderful weekend.

Mojo Monday 233 - Male Birthday Card

Friday, March 23, 2012

Happy Spring everyone!  I hope you have been enjoying the nice warm weather.  I have a friend that lives in Washington State and I saw a post from her on facebook they were having snow!!!!  I don't know what to say about that.  The weather forecast for me this weekend is rain, so I am hoping I can get some projects done.

Here is my card for the Mojo Monday 233.  I had a lot of fun making this card.  I needed a card for a male, and thought of this paper by Authentique.  There is a quote on the bottom of the paper that says "Loyalty in a boy's character inspires boundless hope."  This quote is by Robert Baden-Powell.  I think this quote really fits this paper. I'm not sure who Robert Baden-Powell, but  it is definitely for anything you want to make for a male. As always, thanks for stopping by, feel free to leave a comment.

Mojo Monday 232 - Happy Purrrrthday

Sunday, March 18, 2012

Well, I know this is not Mojo Monday it is a Mojo Sunday and I am cutting it close to the deadline for this challenge.  It's been a busy weekend and now I am preparing for the work week.  I hope everyone enjoyed the nice sunny weekend.  It is hard to believe Spring is this week.  Where did the winter go?  I'm not complaining, I am looking forward to many more sunny beautiful days. 

I created this card for a collegue that I work with.  She loves cats and I thought I would make a punch art cat.  The punch art cat was inspired by Michelle Suit who is a great Stampin Up Rep.  You can check her blog out here.  I took a punch art class from her and she does amazing work!  I hope you like the card, thanks for checking in.
