I needed to make some thank you cards for a friend's baby shower (as usual, part of the gift I give them) and since I was going to have a friend over stamping with me at the same time, I didn't want them to be too complicated and I don't know how everyone else feels about them, but I LOVE single-layer cards. So, I decided to keep it simple in color and design, and used Pick a Petal to make a huge flower on the card, and then to off-set the large size of the flower, I used the Thank You sentiment from the upcoming Level II hostess set, Vases in Vogue. I made her 12 cards, three of each color. I used Purely Pomegranate, Soft Sky and Groovy Guava. I thought Soft Sky would be my favorite new In Color, but it's not. It has a little more of a gray tint to it than I like for it to be my favorite. I find myself REALLY liking Purely Pomegranate, and that's not a typical color for me. I usually go for cool colors, greens and blues, but I love the Pomegranate!!!!! Anyway, here are my simple cards, followed by a couple more pictures that I'll explain. Have a great weekend - I hope to get to stamp today, we'll see!!!!
This next picture is of the card that Emma made for her friend Skyler. She did it all by herself as you can see by the little Taken with Teal fingerprints on the card :) She LOVES to stamp - I'm creating a little mini Stamp-a-holic!!!!!
Lastly, THIS is what Tracy won from my last blog candy contest. Sorry it took me so long to post a picture. Unfortunately, I found that the price of shipping appears to have increased from the last time I shipped Blog Candy to Canada, and in the future I will no longer ship blog candy there. Here's why: I like to have substantial blog candy, almost always including a stamp set, so it's not very light-weight. The shipping this time for this blog candy was almost $18 so when you add up that plus how much the actual blog candy cost me, it gets pretty pricey. I know that that will make my Canadian friends sad, but I don't want to just give away paper and ribbons, you know? I'm sorry, but hopefully everyone will understand. Thanks!!!
She got 32 sheets of 6 x 6 patterned paper (by wild asparagus), a little mini scrapbook to cover and fill, LOTS of copper brads, TWO stamp sets (Very Punny and Warmest Regards), some flower die cuts, and some pretty ribbon. Have fun with it Tracy!!!!
