grateful for you


post 1 of 2 for today...click HERE for a special Chickaniddy Crafts Birthday



Happy Halloween!!

So last Saturday my boy tells me he needs a thank you card for the next morning.  I'm a morning crafter and tend to not craft in the evening hours.  So the next morning, I whipped this together:

paper:  chickaniddy crafts/scrumptious  stamps:  paper smooches/blossoming buds  ink:  zing white  other:  paper accents vellum, mme wood dots, circle die

Vellum makes me a happy crafter.  Throw in heat embossing and wood dots and I'm giddy with joy!

Seriously LOVE Paper Smooches Blossoming Buds!  I've teamed it up with Chickaniddy Crafts, Scrumptious!

The circle in the middle of the striped panel is actually die cut rather than the alpha panel being a circle...


I have strategically placed micro glue dots underneath the wood dots!

I was inspired by




Such a fun sketch:

  9. That vellum on top of the stripes/alpha looks fabulous! I'm chuckling some more ... you don't have any "thank you" cards in your inventory?! What's happened to them all?! You (and Joyce) make the most cards I know in blogland!!

  13. Happy Halloween! I'm guessing your son was well-pleased with this card; it's amazing and certainly 'young man giving to someone' appropriate, given the colours and images you've paired. Fabulous!

  15. OOh that vellum looks fantastic with that flower pattern. I've never used wooden dots but boy do they look perfect with the vellum flowers. I would love to craft in the morning but so many other boring domestic jobs get in my way. Between now and Xmas I'm determined to have one day of card making from when the kids go to school to when they come home. Fingers crossed I can stand still for long enough to do that!!
