Another Thank You Card

Good Morning! We are back from the Regional Softball Tournament. The girls played well and had alot of fun. Saturday, it started pouring down rain and the lightning was showing itself so we had an all day delay and ended up playing our last game of the night at 11:15pm Saturday night. We didn't leave the ballpark until 12:30am. Then the girls had to be back on the field at 8:00 am Sunday morning. We didn't win the tourney but the girls had fun so it was still a success :)

I'm still making thank you cards and will probably be for a while yet. This one is based on one of the recipes from the Joy of Card Making - A Second Helping book. I love both of these books, I think because they have the blank recipes so I can picture what I want to do with it without having to 'undo' the colors and theme that the sample uses. I don't know, I just really love these books.

I started with an orange card base and used some orange striped paper that is from WeRMemoryKeepers. It's an line exclusive to Archivers called "Endless Summer" fun stuff :)
The center patterned paper is from KI Memories - Surprise Giftwrap. Then I used Bazzill Bling as the orange behind the flowers, then a white layer, then Primas and glitter brads made exclusively for this Archivers line. I stamped the thank you, which is from Penny Black in Versafine Black. Very easy card!

I came home to find some new Bella stamps waiting for me :) Woo Hoo, can't wait to get them inked. I also have some new High Hopes stamps that I haven't inked yet. I have to get busy!!!

nothing expands possibilities like unleashed imagination. "

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope your day is fabulous!
