Now...on to today's card.  As I mentioned in my last post, I've been working on some swaps that are based on CASE'ing cards in the IB&C and this one is NOT one of my swap cards (nor was the one in the last post) and it's not really a CASE - totally - but it is very much inspired by the card on page 84.  The placement of the sentiment is pretty much the same.  I don't think you can see it in the tiny pic, but the word "thanks" is below "heartfelt" and it's a rub-on.  My card is a very simple card - just how I like them!!  Anyway - I hope you like it!


Stamps:  Heartfelt Thanks, Thank You Kindly
Paper:  Baja Breeze CS, Parisian Breeze Specialty DSP
Ink:  Chocolate Chip classic ink
Accessories:  Paper Pretties Kit (large half-backed pearl, two white flowers), Valet Ribbon Originals (Baja Breeze satin ribbon)


  1. Very pretty! Again I must go get my catalog and look more closely! I need to make some different size cards also. Love the card and love that baja breeze!

  2. Great card & congrats on the new DT position! :)

  3. Love your card, and love your 'simple', although I would call it stunning rather than simple!! Such a crisp uncluttered look, wish I could do that, I add and add and add some more and always end up with very busy cards! Need to come see you for some lessons, shame you live so far from here!!

  4. Hi Marie,
    Love this card. It is so elegant! I'm always look for ideas for my pretties kit too, so thank you!
    Best wishes,


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I appreciate it and thank you for adding a little sunshine to my day.

Marie :)
