Card Recognition

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

many thanks



I made this card today for the same employee I bribed with wine (see this post) as a thanks for cleaning up all the messes (both literal and figuratively) this month.  Life in a motel is busy in July around here (I say with a chuckle).  I used this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge for my jumping off point.  

Materials: Paper Smooches Squeaky Clean, Waltzingmouse Stamps Frame It sentiment, PTI blocks background, PTI Tag IT Sale #1 die, Cuttlebug Swiss dots embossing folder, Versafine black ink, Tim Holtz distress stain antique linen, water color pencils, PTI rustic white card stock, Twinery yellow twine

She will certainly appreciate this, I'm sure she appreciates you! I don't know if I can say this about a vacuum cleaner, but your card is really lovely.
