Good Morning! Once again, it looks super hazy and smoky outside. No problem! I'll just stay inside and craft! My favorite thing to do anyway!! Actually, I do have to venture outside. I told my son that we would go and buy school supplies today. I like to beat the rush and swarms of people. Don't shoot me, but I prefer paying full price without all the people than finding a bargain and risk getting mauled! I also have to go to the school and test a fifth grader and then we are going to look at new cars! Not sure if we will buy anything (we are really in no big rush) but I find test driving very exciting!
I also wanted to let you know about the card that I posted last week for the color inspiration challenge. Kristina picks her top 10 cards and then randomly picks another 10 to highlight on her blog. Well, I was chosen as her top 10!!! I am so excited!! And because I did that I have gotten a lot of comments! Who knew? Anyway, that was so much fun that I will be trying again! You can view all of the top 10 picks and random picks here.
Today's card is one that I cam up with from a sketch. I have been wanting to use my arrow punch for quite some time but could never find the right time. Anyway, I thought it went great on this one. I actually made another card with this same layout that I like a little better but I will show you that one in a few days. I am going to use it for a shoebox swap that I am in. Just a little note about the 'thank you'. I inked up only the "thank" part in a Ruby Red marker, then I stamped the "U" in Bayou Blue on a scrap piece and cut it out. It is popped up as well as the white panel. A pretty simple card! Enjoy your day!!
