So Grateful

I'm out of thank you cards again so I rustled up this quick card tonight, using the sketch from Try Stampin' On Tuesday (a new challenge for me) and the colours from Colour Q.

Here is my card:

I stamped this wonderful frame from Apothecary Art in Chocolate Chip ink.  Do you know this is the first time this particular stamp from the set has seen ink?  I've just fallen in love with the stamp which is the next size down, completing ignoring the others!  Time to rectify this, I think!  The flowers are coloured in Daffodil Delight and More Mustard, with the leaves in Pear Pizzaz.  I will miss Pear Pizzaz when it retires at the end of this year... it's such a lovely shade of green.

I cut the frame out with my coordinating Framelits dies and layered it onto an oval made from textured Chocolate Chip card.  I don't have any oval dies or punches so I drew around some kitchenware!  I scored seven lines onto my base card before adhering the oval.

Nothing complicated today!

Stamps: Apothecary Art
Ink: Chocolate Chip, marker pens in Daffodil Delight, More Mustard and Pear Pizzaz
Card: Whisper White, textured Chocolate Chip
Other: Framelits Labels dies, BigShot, Simply Scored board, stamp-a-ma-jig

As always, do get in touch if these or any other SU goodies have caught your eye!  I'd be delighted to assist you with your crafty makes and place an SU order for you.  Just give me a ring on 07977 141605 or send me an email.  Remember that, during July, if your order comes to £45 or more, you receive two 9-yard spools of organdie ribbon and a box of gorgeous Everyday Enchantment brads for absolutely free!

I couldn't stop laughing at today's cat picture.  Do you remember the photo I showed you of my wonderful Stampin' Up starter kit when it arrived?  So much loveliness spread across my dining table!  Well, this is a slightly different starter kit... one I don't think Socks would have been as happy with!

Right, I'm off to catch up with your blogs!  Thanks for stopping by today,
