Many Thanks... May giveaway starts next Sunday!

 Hello and welcome!

I've had four days off in a row and have been catching up on a lot at home! This is just a quick post about some thank you cards I made with embellishments I found a thrift store!

I found these "thanks" embellishments and knew I probably had card stock to match to make some quick thank you cards for sale (at Friday Fling if you're in downtown Palmer, Alaska this summer!). I rummaged through my paper and found some close matches although these pictures DON'T show the colors matching very well! They match better in real life! I rarely use patterned paper so don't faint when you see the brown card with the flowered paper! I did a technique learned from Jennifer McGuire in that I stamped in VersaMark ink onto the cardstock to do a tone on tone effect. I used a couple of different background stamps from Impression Obsession. I added some bling or pearls around the "thanks" or scattered here and there depending on the card! I made a dozen cards rather quickly! I'll show the other half dozen thank you cards on next Sunday's giveaway post!

I wanted to remind you that my May giveaway starts May 1st... that's less than a week! I'll have to make it a shorter giveaway time since I leave in the middle of the month to head south to see my girls, grandson and brother and sisters (I can't wait!) and I want to mail the prize before I leave!

Since the April giveaway had a rain theme stamp set in it I'm going to try to have May's giveaway include flowers so that... "April showers bring May flowers"! ;0) I know, I'm silly... as my sister keeps saying!

So stay tuned next Sunday for the giveaway to start... you'll see the prize then too!

Thanks for stopping by and God bless you!

  1. Hi Kris ~ I LOVE the tone-on-tone look on a card. It looks classy and elegant in my opinion. Very nicely done and I especially love the brown one. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your trip to the lower 48!

  2. Love those scattered dragonflies. Thanks for sharing!
