Thank you card . . .

Okay . . . last thing of post before leaving in the morning!

I started writing a list, of things not to forget tomorrow and on the list was punches & paper. Terry asked what I thought I'd need the punches for . . . he thought that Theresa and I were going to sneak to start crafting, while in St. Louis (after the kids went to bed). I told him that I was planning on punching some flowers out, on the way. He seems okay with it . . . WAHOO!

I thought this card turned out really cute and elegant . . . and it was SO easy! I ran the front of the card (Always Artichoke cardstock)through the Cuttlebug (Birds and Swirls) embossing folder. Stamped the "Thank you" from a new Stampin' Up Elegant Thank You stamp, on Whisper White, matted on Always Artichoke, and then Black cardstock . . . used dimensionals behind the black and then folded a piece of Old Olive grossgrain ribbon and taped it on the back. I did a little 3x3 card, to test it out on . . . which I love the 3x3 (it's just SO cute) . . . but you can't put 3x3's in the mail . . . so this is a "real sized" card! Didn't turn out cute?

Okay . . . better go get my beauty sleep! I got two anxious little men . . . that are going to be ready for MonsterJam bright and early tomorrow!! Send telepathic thoughts, for Terry wanting to drive tomorrow okay . . . then I can punch flowers out in the car! ;o) I promise to upload these when I'm done!

Have a great weekend girls! Thanks for stopping by the craft room!


  1. Your card turned out beautiful!

    I hope you guys have a great time at MonsterJam. Have a safe trip!

  2. MONSTER JAM!!! We took the kids to that when they were young. I've always wanted to go again. The tickets cost the same as Jazz tickets so IF we go to Salt Lake for entertainment, it's usually Basketball (darn).
    Hope you had a lot of fun, and got a lot of punching done!! The card looks beautiful!
    Have a great day.

  3. Ok I really like this card.
    Hopefully you can show me how to make it. I would love to make some up to have on hand. I am always having to Thank somebody. Especially your sister after friday nite. I could not believe that she did that for me.
    Meeting Trace was the most amazing time. I was in awwwwww! We had a really good time. Hope Monster Jam was just as good for you all.
    Have a great week!
