Another Thank you.

Like I said in my last entry, I have been making some Thank you cards.
This one is extremely similar to a birthday card that I received from a friend of mine Fiona Platzer.
I have to admit that this stamp set Elements of Style is also a favourite of mine.
The card is made using Elegant eggplant, marina mist and white cardstock. Marina Mist DSP, soft plum and old olive ink. Also used the Scallop Trim border punch.
Have a great day,
Michelle .

Thank you

I was going through my stash of cards, to find I have a thousand female happy birthday cards and very few of anything else. I am in need of a few Thank you cards, so set about making some.

I even decorated the inside a little. I really like this card. It is made using Crumb cake, Baja Breeze and vanilla cardstock. I embossed the front of the card using the Square Lattice embossing folder. I have used a retired SU stamp set but I just love this stamp set. Also used the Modern Label punch.

Hope you like this card.

I'm Back.

Hello Everyone,
Well the last couple of weeks have flown by with no real time for crafting.
My parents have arrived for a visit, they were coming to help me after some surgery but that has been postponed for a month.(bugger!!! and I am so disappointed, but know it is for the best in the long term.)
So I have been busy making a few items to keep my mind busy.
I would like to share with you a few of these.

First is this little Desktop Calendar box by Connie Babbert and thought it was a potential gift idea.
I have used some new cardstock and retired DSP and greeting. Am liking that the DSP had flowers on it and the butterflies fitted in. The only thing I have not done is to add a brad to the little draw, I would like to find on in the shape of a butterfly, to finish off the theme of this project.

Here I have tried to give a side on view of the box and card.

Hope this finds everyone well and taking care,
