Thank You card

This thank you card was made for a neighbor who loaned my husband a walker the other day when he hurt his foot and couldn't get around. I was real pleased with how it turned out. I think the paper really made it.

Again I used WC page 35 Stitched blackout, no shift at 5 1/2 and PS rectangle at 5 1/4 and 5. I used CB with a square floral and embossed the square. Then I chalked and stickled it. The lettering is SB cut twice. Skittles are on the corners. Real simple.

Note Card Set

I finally finished a complete set of note cards. I've wanted to do that since I started a couple months ago, but everytime I got started I'd see something on the MS and I'd want to try it. I've made a change in the blue card. I wasn't really pleased with the way the words read, but I was trying to hide a stamping error. (I used a aqua ink and it blended right in with the flowers). I asked for advice and one our card buddies also felt the wording read strange. That's all I needed was confirmation. LOL

All the cards are cut using WC page 35 Stitched blackout, no shift. The base card is 5 1/2. The the sheets are cut with PS Rectangle at 5 1/4 and 5. Of course the squares and rectangles the flowers are on vary by the size of the stamp. Some are cut with PS and I just cut with my cutter. I believe most of the phrases are from WC. (Love that cart !) The stamps are clear stamps in a pack I got a M and the bouquet is off M's $1 table. I used MCPT and stickles. Ribbon, Skittles and brads were used as embellishments.
