Thank you! (again.....)

Last week's challenge on Stars and Stamps - as part of the ongoing Birthday Bash -- was to create a thank you card incorporating the color yellow... this week the Midweek Throwdown is to make another thank you card with an autumn flair to it. Fall is my favorite season and I love the colors (and the stamp!) in this card. The stamps are from a gorgeous set I just received called "Day of Gratitude" from the Stampin' Up' holiday minibook. The medallion is stamped with Cajun Craze on celery cardstock.

Stamps R Us Challenge for OWH

Thank you, Stamps R Us, for joining the OWH Stars and Strips Birthday Bash! The challenge was to create a birthday card for a child. Got lots of great nieces and step grand-daughters so I love making them cards with the Magnolias...

Sketch Challenge 34: Thank you!

Okay, I know I'm over 60 and that's when the mind really starts to go but I was in denial until I searched high and low for Sketch Challenge 33 and realized that the brain cells necessary to see this have apparently died. Hence, we skip from Sketch 32 to Sketch 34!

The challenge was to make a thank you card from this sketch that incorporated the color yellow. I used some leftover paper from a pack I got a Target, Stampin' Up! "Just Believe" stamps and Stampin Up! Daffodil Delight and Early Expresso ink... and again my "less is more" mantra....
