We would like to see you create a thank you card. We have a fabulous prize this week of the Sarah Kay stamp - "Country Girl". She has very kindly been donated by Bryony from Silly Monkey Crafts. They have all the new Sarah Kay's currently in stock. But I bet they will all be gone really soon!
For my card - I really don't know where I was going when I started, but not here. I like how it turned out, but nothing like the plan. Helene from Alota Rubber Stamps, just sent me this Country background stamp recently, I asked her for one to use with some of the cute people stamps she has had come out the past couple of months. And honestly that was going to be what I was going to do today. But then I came across the well recognized "Mr. Bug" and something just clicked and the tipping of the hat seemed to say Thank you to me. I colored him and the background with my Copics. I cut out Mr. Bug with my Fiskars Kraft Knife and put him on the scene with pop dots.
For the card I used a scrap of dots pattern paper, sorry no name on it so I have no clue as to who made it. I punched the side of it with one of the new Martha Stewart Border Punches, I think it is called Double Dots or something like that. I inked the edges really heavy with a light brown ink. I then matted the scene on the same card stock as the base and attached to the dots, and then ran two layers of ribbon on each side, one that is the same color as the card stock and the second layer the white ric-rak. The sentiment is also from Alota Rubber stamps. I love this Thank you it looks handwritten and I love the heart at the end of it.
Not where it started, but like how it ended!
Make sure to go and check out all of the other DT cards this week at Spoon full of Sugar - wow really wonderful cards this week as always! I hope you get a chance to join in - Thank You cards are always needed right?
Oh and one last reminder for the PCP Alota Rubber Stamps Group Grab Bag Challenge, only one more day to get in on the prize (AND FYI... Helene has been adding to it for two weeks it is a BIG GRAB BAG of goodies!) All you have to do is load up a card to the PCP photo gallery using an Alota Rubber stamp and tag it with the code Alota-gbc1... yep that is it! Hope there are more last minute cards!
Well I have about 20 minutes before I have to pick up MIL to take her for her weekly errands - and I want to catch up on some blogs I missed yesterday - So have an Inky Tuesday!
