Thank You Card

What an interesting week.  We had a taste of spring earlier in the week which was the inspiration for this card but as I share this post, it seems we've reverted back to winter.

What or who do you have to be thankful for in your life?  I have so many people that have blessed me, that I just wanted to dedicate this card to them. (You know who you are!) I hope this card gives you some inspiration to drop a note to someone today, thanking them for just being them.

A Masculine Birthday Card

Masculine cards have always been a bit of a challenge for me. I think the "To The Nines Specialty DP" is a perfect remedy for that! (too bad it's discontinued)   I stamped my image on white paper using Sage Shadow and Chocolate Chip.  I then sponged the edge to make it look more vintage.

To assemble my card I layered a piece of the "To The Nines Specialty DP" onto a piece of Chocolate Chip CS along with a white layer that was punched with the Scallop Trim Border from Stampin' Up. I then took a piece of 1/4" grosgrain Chocolate Chip Ribbon, placed it around the matted DP, brought the ends of the ribbon around back and stuck them down to the back of the Chocolate Chip CS.  I then centered and mounted this piece to the Sahara Sand card front.  Lastly, I stamped the greeting in Sage Shadow.

Get Well Card

I spent a few days at the office this week and I never enjoy just sitting in the hotel room every evening.  I decided to make a trip to Walmart to see what Cricut cartridges they had in stock.  I've had my eyes on the Cricut Lite Cherry Limeade Cartridge for a while now but I couldn't find it at any of my local stores.  Wouldn't you know they had it so I just couldn't pass up purchasing it.  It has a great font and some cute images too.

Enjoy your weekend!
