Thank You and Thank You.

Hi Everyone!

I have two cards to share with you today. I have been so busy making birthday cards lately, that I haven't replenished by stash of other cards lately. One group that I'm really lacking in is Thank you cards. So, I decided to take some scraps of patterned papers that I had laying on my desk and make a couple of Thank You cards to share with you today.

I kept the first one really simple. I had this piece of patterned paper already trimmed in a triangle shape. (I'm not sure where the paper came from....I just have a huge stash of scrap patterned paper.) I also had the red base already as well, so it was a perfect match! I added the layer of Kraft to the base and heat embossed the sentiment from SSS "Handwritten Greetings" set with versamark and white powder. I added a small strip of SSS Surf Blue diagonally across the middle and some stickles as well. I finished it all off with some faux white stitching line.

Anything Goes Challenges for this card:

1. Lil Patch of Crafty Friends
2. Crafting from the Heart
3. Pammies Inky Pinkies

Now for the second card. I started with a Ripe Avocado base and added a layer of dark brown. I took some Vintage Photo Distress ink and inked up my Argyle embossing folder before I ran a piece of Kraft card stock through it with my cuttlebug. I distressed and roughed up the edges of the embossed piece before adding it to the card  I layered up the rest of the card as shown. The sentiment in the middle is from PTI's Framed Out #1 set.

Anything Goes Challenges for this card:

1. Artistic Impressions:
2. Incy Wincy Designs:
3. 613 Avenue Create (embossing folder optional)

Have a great day and I'll see you again tomorrow!
