calypso thanks.


paper:  stampin' up calypso coral celebration add on kit  stamps:  paper smooches sentiment sampler  ink:  fresh ink charcoal  other:  stampin' up banner dies, doily

Isn't that 'thanks' perfect?  I love that font from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler.

I've been smitten with:

 3 x 5.5 inch cards

How lucky am I that my friend Kimberly gave me a bunch of crafty goodies for my birthday including 2 of the stampin' up calypso coral celebration add on kits.

This kit is chock full of goodness!  I have already cranked out 15 cards and still have tons of supplies left over!  I should have taken pictures of the other designs I created but was in such a crafting frenzy....bonus points that I've actually sent out those 15 cards already!

Before you go, I wanted to share a pic of what's been going around here:

Yes, thank goodness we have a 3 car garage hangar!  It's so fun to see the airplane, well, looking like an airplane.  It will eventually move into the 'real life' hangar...but for now the garage is good.


  1. pretty card. reminds me that I want some paper smooches. love that garage. oh my

  2. The airplane pictures are so cool Amy! And I'm with you on the the thanks sentiment and the soft gray with the coral is swoon worthy!

  3. Great card Amy! And I'm assuming your husband is a pilot? How cool! My grandfather was a retired TWA pilot and used to have his own hanger in New Jersey and I saw stuff like this all of the time at his place.
