thank u



This "thank u" card was quite involved for someone as rusty as I am at stamping and creating! I even pulled out the sewing machine for this bright and cheery creation:)

My favorite part of this card is the darling little "thank u" tag... isn't it cute? The image is from the Cute by the Inch hostess set, which includes nine little square images (that are equally cute). After inking the image up in Real Red, I punched it out using the Small Tag punch.



The Mojo Monday Sketch 187 and the...



Play Date Cafe Challenge 78 were the inspiration for this project!



Thanks for stopping by the stage:) Have a great holiday weekend!



Stamps: Cute by the Inch (hostess)
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Real Red, Bashful Blue (textured), Whisper White CS, variety DSP
Ink: Real Red
Other: Paper Daisies, Candy Cane BIG Designer Buttons, Linen Thread, Bashful Blue Satin ribbon, Small Tag punch, Cutter Kit, pins (non-SU)
