Eastern Palace Thank You

Today I participated in the first ever Tic Tac Toe Challenge. I chose the right diagonal row to inspire today’s card: heat embossing, gold, and free. I added some ribbon as my free space.

For this card, I finally inked up my Eastern Beauty set for the first time and heat embossed the center image and sentiment in gold. The coordinating thinlit dies offer so many different options of an incredible image.

Dogs are the best

Growing up, we never had any pets -unless you count the few weeks with a goldfish! When I met my now husband, I also met (and fell in love with) his dog Hannah. Hannah’s fur is a light brown (see below for a photo of her) and I wanted to make the dog look like her so I used my aqua painter in Sahara Sand ink. Since the stamp already has a heart around the dog’s collar and the sentiment refers to a heart, I used the framelits from the Everyday Jars to add a row of hearts to the bottom.

I think anyone would be happy to receive this card and it would also be great for pet sitters, dog walkers, groomers, and veterinary staff.

Christmas, continued

Although some of the radio stations started playing Christmas music a few weeks ago, I am holding out until Friday (the day after Thanksgiving) to start tuning in myself. I made this card to get me even more excited for all of the great Christmas songs I will listen and sing along to through the season.

I am currently working on building my Christmas shopping list for friends and family. I’m also preparing myself for writing Thank You cards for gifts I receive so I’ve started working on some Christmas-themed Thank You cards as well.

Thank You card collection

I find I’m always in need of more thank you cards. Here are some that I’ve made recently.

This first one reminds me of my sister-in-law who loves sunflowers more than anyone I know.

I am originally from New England so fall leaves have a special place in my heart. I wanted to highlight the fall leaves in the card below.

I kept my colors simple with the following card but used variations of each color (designer paper, regular cardstock, ink, ribbon, etc.) to make this card pop.

You might recognize the die cut of the hydrangea below. I used the same die cut and cut it into a circle to make the sunflower card at the top of this post.

The cable knit embossing folder has become one of my new winter favorites and was perfect for the neutrals Thank You card below.

My husband and I love spending time outdoors so this card embodies the feeling of the outdoors and incredible nature surrounding us.

The following card didn’t photograph exactly as colored – it is navy blue and white although it looks more like black in the photograph. The text and snowflake type image are embossed in white.
