New York, New York...


make sure you check out my FOR SALE post.


So yesterday I posted THESE thank you cards that were going to originally be my boy's graduation thank you card design.  Then the girl said, don't you have a New York stamp?  Heck yeah:


I love all shades of gray...in clothing, decor and crafting!  The cardstock is mystery sheets but love how the New York skyline is the star of the show....thanks to Altenew's Sketchy Cities America.

Each card has a skinny strip of washi...personally I love the neon pink:)

My card design is loosely based on THIS retro sketch.

I can't believe that we're over half way through June...

  18. Great suggestion from your daughter! Love how you used the stamp and varied the washi. The pink really pops and would be perfect to send to females and the gray is more understated so it's great for the guys. :)
