Much Appreciated


Here is a card I made tonight for the i {heart} papers DT challenge. The challenge was to make a Christmas themed thank you card. I'm about a week late for the challenge (sorry, girls!) and I think I missed the mark slightly. This isn't really Christmas-y, so much as it is wintery. Close enough? I hope so!

I used the Carrying Tree Riley from Hanna Stamps, and the sentiment is from a small set of four thank you stamps that Stampin' Up! used to carry. What was it called? Many Thanks? Something like that. Anyhow, the DP is that See Spot paper from IHP that I've been using like crazy. I just love the colors in it. The ribbon was a gift from my friend Courtney (Thank you!).

How do you like my buttons? I hate leaving my buttons nekkid, but didn't have the patience to string three of them, so I put brads in the center instead. Just open your brads, and push them through two of the four holes, and flatten on the back like normal. You might need to snip the ends of your brads a little with your craft scissors so they don't stick out, but it works!

Enjoy the day!

Cute card Sarah! I really like how you used a strip of torn designer paper over the same kind of paper; that is really a neat touch!

Hi Sarah! Thanks. I found a free digiscrapping kit by Kimberly Stewart and I added the wording and created the little sidebar thingies myself. I'm glad you like it! I'm pretty new to this whole digiscrapping thing, so I'm working with some freebies. Now I need to start working on one for after CHristmas...which is coming REALLY fast!

BTW... Did I ever tell you that I absolutely LOVED Your yellow/red/green banner?!! That color scheme is awesome! Perfect for those 2 little boys...but girlie enough for their mama :) You always do such a great job.
(I see that you changed it back--that one is great too...bling is always FUN!)

Merry Christmas!!

This is TOO CUTE!!! And I don't think you missed the mark!

About nekkid buttons... Here's how I keep mine from being indisposed! ;) I tie a little knot in my ribbon and then glue dot it on the top of the button. If you glue dot it right, someone really has to get on top of it to tell that it is not threaded through the button!

Merry Christmas! and TFS!
