Doodling Thank yous

Happy Friday! :) I love that another weekend is here, but I am so not lovin' the weather forecast for the weekend... chance of SNOW on Sunday? What is up with the weather? I wish spring would finally just get here and more importantly stay here already!


So... I have been working on thank you cards for all of my wonderful birthday gifts from a couple of weeks ago. I was actually able to get a few cards out of my stash - a few month ago, I would never have been able to talk about my stash of card, because I didn't have one. I never stamped more than what I needed. So that is the other wonderful thing about stamping on a regular basis just for me - less scrambling and rushing around for a card when I need it! :) But this is one that I made just for a thank you card - vs. for a SCS or IA challenge or because someone just inspired me with a card she created. So here is my card for today:


Stamps Used: SU Doodle This and Wonderful Words
CS Used: Shimmery White
Inks Used: Really Rust, Ruby Red, More Mustard and Brocade Blue and some Twinkling H2Os (I haven't been able to resist using them on a card lately!)
Accessories: Black and White Gingham and Mustard ribbon, dimensionals

I used Shimmery White CS for the first time. It was another purchase in what has become my "I can't believe that I never got this before" order! LOL I really love the subtle shimmer to the card and the simplicity of the layout. Just one layer - I popped the flower up on dimensionals, and then finished the card with some black and white gingham. I again used my aquapainter again to color the image (lovin' this look!).

OK you got me - I just got my Twinkle H2O's out and tried them with my aqua painters and it was so much fun. Now I just need more colors of the H20's......great.
