Simple Thanks

(Click image to view details.)

We've officially reached the last week of school here in the Merritt house! I thought that the boys would be jumping for joy this morning, but instead, they were just plain cranky :( I sure hope they aren't this cranky all summer, I might have to leave them outside for the bears...although I don't think the bears would want them either, LOL!

FYI- I am a very good & patient Mommy and I don't even let my kids play outside by themselves b/c of the bears, just sayin'. Moving on...

This time of year comes with lots of thank you cards! Using the SCS CAS Sketch (CAS123) I made another thank you card to add to my pile. What a great sketch to work with!! I started with a 3 x 3 square of Lap of Luxury dsp and cut it into 1 inch squares. I cut another piece from the same dsp pack for my mat (approx 3 1/4 x 3 1/4). The 1 inch squares were popped up on dimensionals. Using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit, I made a Pink Pirouette & Very Vanilla butterfly layered the smaller on top of the larger butterfly and added a large Basic Pearl. I finished off my card with a sentiment from Fabulous Phrases and a strip of Basic Pearls!

Try using this week's sketch and put your own twist on it. Instead of using a 3 x 3 square of dsp, using 1 inch squares in all different designs, replace the squares with circles or hearts or make a quilted pattern! I can't wait to see your creation in the gallery!!

Stamps: Fabulous Phrases
Ink: Elegant Eggplant
Paper: Very Vanilla, Lap of Luxury dsp
Accessories: Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Basic Pearls
