More Thank Yous

It was fun to make a card here and there as gifts trickled in, but since I now need a bunch of cards at once I had to go the mass production route.  But I think I came up with a cute design that was quick to put together.  I made several cards with each animal assembly line style.  I'll probably make some more using the lion, owl, and fox, which I didn't use in these ones.  I love this stamp set!!  The animals seem to be perfect for every baby/birthday/thank you card I need these days!!  If you don't yet have it it's in the Occasions Mini which is only going to be around until the end of April, so get it while you can!!

Whale of Thanks

As the gifts trickle in I make cards!  I guess I should try to make a few ahead of time.  Maybe I will get working on that this week!  This one is going in the mail tomorrow.  I used last week's card sketch from SCS as inspiration.  I thought the Summer Sun panel needed a little something so I made a faux button!  It looks way cuter in real life!!

Today I am going to a wedding.  And this is the card that will be included with the gift.  If you remember this card from the bridal shower you will remember that the wedding colors are burgundy, orange, yellow, and brown.  So, I used those colors in my card again.  I wanted a soft look on the card, so I used Stampin' Pastels to color the Medallion and sentiment which I had stamped in Versamark.  I added a little ribbon and my one layer card was complete!  Have a great day everyone!  I'll be dancing the night away!

Nursery Art

 I haven't been able to share anything with you recently as my laptop went on a business trip with the hubby.  But I've got it back and I have some art work to share with you!  I bought these frames from IKEA to make some sort of art work for the nursery.  I knew I wanted to use Fox & Friends, but wasn't sure how I was going to make them.  One afternoon I sat down and just got to work.  I like the idea of the uppercase and lowercase alphabet like in Defining Alphabet, but since I don't own it I'm improvised.  I used Short Order Alphabet and my Stamp-a-ma-jig.  The theme of the nursery is brown and white, so the monkey and owl tie in with that.  I'm planning on hanging the giraffe picture in the middle since it's got some color on it.  I'm so excited about how they turned out.  Now I just need to get them on the wall.

Ink: Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Old Olive, So Saffron
Paper: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Old Olive, Whisper White
