Sweet Thank You

Today's Ramblings: Good morning everyone - I hope your week has been great. Unfortunately, I haven't been around as much as I would like. I have not been very confident in my crafting and my cards seem to be taking longer and longer to make.



I used Yummy Cupcake {found here}:

A bright Thank You card to cheer up a friend:
Card Ingredients:
Clear Dollar Stamps digi; Recollections and KI Memories papers; Recollections cardstock; Square Nestie; Inkssentials Glossy Accents; Primas; Celebrate It ribbon; Dress It Up buttons.



I made this cupcake card for the following challenges:



I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Stay crafty.

Oh Deanne, I'm sorry you're feeling like you're in a slump. Your cards look awesome to me AS ALWAYS! I always love your color choices and use of embellies (buttons!) :) Your cards always bring a smile to my face. Hopefully you'll feel better about things soon!

Sorry to hear you have lost some of your mojo Deanne. We all get those days and weeks but I bet it will come flooding back soon and you won't be able to stop !!

Your card is just gorgeous, love the zingy bright colours and your stitching detail is fantastic. Such a yummy cupcake.

Thank you for joining us at Simon Says Challenge this week.

You are a card making genius Deanna. Your color combos, images, and coloring is always so awesome. Love this one too. :)

This is such a bright and lovely card Deanne - hope you get your confidence back soon as I know exactly how you're feeling - I often get bouts where I can't put the simplest of cards together. It's really frustrating isn't it?

Love Lynda xxx

Well Deanne you never cease to amaze me with your bright colors! This is amazing and wonderful and your stitching is just fantastic! I do know how you feel about the lack of mojo lately, because I'm feelin' it too. Way too much going on in my life right now to concentrate I guess. It's always nice to have you join us at SSW.

Peace & Luv,
Jeannie
