More Thank You cards

I held my fun $30-for-30 Birthday card class this weekend. I am still not sure what I should do during these classes... walk around? Instruct? Work on the same projects? I was not prepared (i.e. did not have enough supplies, since my order from SU! is still on it's way to me.... another frustrating topic embedded there!) to make the same b-day cards as everyone else, so I continued to make some thank you cards. Some still for Christmas presents, some for the customers who came to my class! Sneaky, huh?

#1 Eastern Bloom Thank You
I love this card! I just got my Hawaii Papaya paper in my latest order & I couldn't wait to use it. And the colors in that paper are just so pretty together, and a nice retreat from the pinks and browns I have been using lately! I think it fit perfectly with Eastern Blooms. I will make more of this card, I'm sure (I only made 3 yesterday).

Stamp Sets: Pocket Silhouettes, a thank you set I can't remember the name of...
Cardstock: Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango
Stamp Pads (Classic): Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, Orchid Opulence
DSP: Hawaii Papaya
Accessories/Tools: 1/4" Chocolate Chip ribbon, Silver Brad, dimensional

#2 Thank Ewe
And I always seem to go back to Pun Fun, one of my favorite sets in the catalog! This one is just too cute for words, and it makes me chuckle everytime I use a stamp from it. Notice the same layout (one of my new favorites!) It's so simple, but interesting at the same time!

Stamp Sets: Pun Fun, Love You Much
Cardstock: Whisper White, Riding Hood Red, Bashful Blue
Stamp Pads (Classic): Black Stazon, Riding Hood Red, Bashful Blue
DSP: Washington Apple
Accessories/Tools: 1/4" White Ribbon, dimensionals

I have to also say, I'm SO disappointed! It looks like my hit counter has bit the big one. So now I don't know how many visitors I've had. I may have to install a new one and start at 1000, since I know I was close to 1000. BUMMER!

Thanks for reading. :)


  1. Thank goodness SU is starting to catch up with the orders!! I am glad you learned to improvise. Good cards!

    The ewe is so cute! The whole set makes me smile - the animals are so cute!

  3. Very very cute! I love the sheep card!

  4. These are darling! I am a huge fan of Hawaii Papaya - love the colors and patterns in it (though I don't think it was the most popular DSP) - it has a great look for both summer and fall, too! Way to make good use of your time during your SAS! :)


  5. Sorry about your counter - I think a lot of us got hit by that bug.
    Your cards are awesome! Thanks for sharing.

  6. Lovely cards! Fun colors and they put a smile on my face... :) My counter was on the "outs" too and now I see it's up and running again... Thank God! Smiles :)


Imagine a beep. Then leave me a message! I love hearing from you, thanks!
