In a few short hours, my husband and I are headed to Arizona to enjoy a few days away from the daily grind of work, work, work. Our ‘retirement’ countdown clock (retiring from working full time) turns over to 11 months 29 days tomorrow and we are excited! A year from now our journey to enjoying more time ‘retired’ (whatever that may look like!) begins and you will be hearing more about it here …..
My card today is a fun, bright Thank You card I created using several different stamp sets. I got the layout idea from a card published in a recent cardmaking publication and took stamps I had on hand to create this version.
The Thank You was inked once and then stamped 3 – 4 times to get the varying shades of ink. I repeated this a couple of times and just varied the position of the sentiment on the Whisper White card stock. No positioning tool needed 🙂 The flower was stamped and quickly punched with a coordinating Pansy Punch – I love how Stampin’ Up has stamp sets and coordinating punches or Framelits/Thinlit dies that cut out your stamped image in a flash!
Would love to hear what you think!
