tags, thanks and celebrate

I've got a few goodies to share...


First up I was working on some holiday tags for a card order.  I was inspired by Jill's video over at Penny Black.  I just got a whole box of fabulous May Arts ribbon for some DT projects and my upcoming card classes and I couldn't resist.  (Did you see the Ribbon Lady reached 5000 FB fans and is going to have a giveaway?)  


So I need 15 thank you cards, so I decided to play with the Hero Arts Retro Tulips and the PTI Fabulous Frames, love that the subtle layers add just a little something.  I used some May Arts ribbon and added a SRM sticker and a Studio Calico heart I had left over from last month's Artful Delight card kit.


This one I layered the frames in the opposite order.


And this one I accidentally did upside down.



A card using the current Play Date Cafe colors and inspired by Teri's card here.  Simon Says Stamps is celebrating thanks this week, so these are great options for that challenge.



And one last card (using more fabulous new ribbon).  A CAS take on this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.  If you made it this far, congrats!  I'm not even half way done with the card commission list, so beware, more cards coming to my little blog.
