Cherry thanks




Sylvia was oh-so generous with the Color Throwdown party and gave away several Stampin Up sets as a thank you for the 280 comments she received on her blog. I love generous people. (This is a great place to throw in a random mention to Jenny's blog candy give away, click here to post a comment- she's spreading the word about her challenge and giving away a Hero Arts set). But back to my current thank you card-- thank you Sylvia for the great Stampin Up cherry stamp. I've used the Card Patterns sketch. Mark's Finest Papers Speedy Cat challenge this week is thank you cards, so here's another entry to that challenge. And Everything But the Kitchen Sink is celebrating buttons this month for their household item. Thanks to Sylvia I had these cute buttons. Last month when EBTKS did tin foil I was able to get the entire family to play along, click here, so this month my 5 year old son wanted to play again. I absolutely love his creative ideas, I swear it wasn't my idea to use buttons as coconuts. And since I've used the great Cosmo Cricket paper with polka dots let's enter this in the Simon Says Stamp and Treehouse Thursday polka dot challenges.

Materials: Stampin Up cheery stamp, PTI sentiment, Cosmo Cricket Early Riser patterned paper, Ribbon, Fiskars circle cuter, Stampin Up buttons, white twine,Versacolor red ink, Stampin Up black ink

Ben's card: Hero Arts palm tree & sunflower, PTI cloud & sentiment, buttons, Versacolor ink

The last time I had one, no one commented and I gave nothing away. I sometimes think people do not read the posts, just quickly look at your ideas!
