A Thank You Card

Okay, so I am officially 
posting my first card.  
This is a card I made awhile back for my husband to use for a woman he works with.  I am not going to lie, I am pretty proud of this one.  Let it be known, it took me almost an hour to do it, though.  Of course, that included thinking of the idea and all, but still if it took me an hour every time I sat down to make a card, I would never get any made.  Not that my reality is a lot better, but that is more because I have a 2 year old.  With nap time get shorter, completing chores and crafting is getting harder and harder to do. 
Anyway, here is the card...

I used a free gift I got years back when I still lived in the same town as my Stampin' Up consultant, Cindy.  The stamp set is called Fresh Cuts and came with some note cards, as well.  The large flower in the center was die cut into the cards.  I cut the card in half and ran it through my Cuttlebug.  I used the SU white craft ink along with the same SU Fresh Cuts set for the background image, and the black "thank you" was a dollar stamp from Micheal's.  Add some ribbon and Stickles to a base made of scraps, and you got yourself a card.

FYI - I am working on improving my blogging and photo skills, so keep your fingers crossed.  
Thanks for taking a look!


  1. Yeah - I am SO not crafty... but since I dream of one day being... I will definitely show my support!
