✱✱BIG thanks✱✱




A couple things about this card that would not be easily spotted by glancing at it...can you guess?


Here we go:

Day 3 of using my Studio Calico August Card Kit paper pad 
(notice the 'paint chip' colors on the left hand side of the base panel?)

I managed to use 2, count them two, wood mounted stamps:
A Muse Big Thanks
{I'm going with the 'whimsical' stamping of the sentiment}

Twill:  upcycled from packaging

Twine/button:  upcycled from giftie from Annette {that's one of her FAB buttons!}

I've been admiring the sketches over at



Have a super day!!!!
