a colorful thanks --

hi everyone -- thanks for stopping by!

remember that baby shower i posted about?  well, little sopia is here, and her, her mommy, daddy and big brother are all doing great!

here is one last post related to that shower - i made these sweet little cards to send out the the ladies who helped me put it all together.

you can't really tell from the picture, but the card is smaller than the average card -- it measures about 4x3 or so.

the green cardstock is from SU - called lucky limeade - a new favorite color!  the pink designer paper is something i had on hand from a stack and the ribbon i picked up at michael's.  the 'thanks' stamp is also from SU, and it is stamped on a piece of vellum, and placed over another piece of the designer paper - i used dimensional to pop it up a bit.

a cute little note of thanks for their help!

thanks for stopping by!  happy stamping!

sympathy silhouettes --

a dear friend of the family lost her mom recently - still feeling the pains of my own mom's passing, i made this card to send off to the family.  i got a beautiful thank you in return. in this day of emails and texts, and facebook and twitter -- all of which i use (probably too much - LOL), there is something wonderful and so special about a hand written note, a piece of real mail.

i love the simpleness of the card - i love this set, i use it a lot.

the stamp set is from stamping up - called inspired by nature.  the papers  and inks are also SU - chocolate chip, and crumb cake.  there is another example of this stamp set HERE.

i am also going to enter this card into 2 challenges.  it's been awhile since i've had the chance -

Stampin' Sisters in Christ
 - this week's challenge is to use a dark and light color.  this weeks scripture also plays along very well with the purpose of this card:
Ephesians 5: 8-9 
“You were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light, for light produces every kind of goodness and righteousness and truth.”

and i'm also entering in at Paper Sundaes
 - this week's challenge is a "girlie" card.  while the colors don't seem very girlie, the flowers are.  and i have many beautiful women friends - who love the earthy colors. :) 

thanks so much for stopping by!

be sure to check out some of my other posts - and stop by again!

happy stamping!
