Red & Gold Thank You...




Good morning peeps - well it's back to the daily work grind for me.  I have had a wonderful Christmas holiday and I am not looking forward to things being "normal" again LOL.  While many people have today off, I volunteered to go into work today, what was I thinking???!!

Cupcake Craftroom (challenge:  Anything Goes) has asked me to be this month's guest designer, and of course I said yes!

I am so excited to share my card with you all today, it's my favorite shabby card to date!  I even brought out the embossing gun and powder!
Card Ingredients:  Cupcake Crafts Traditions digi paper pack;  Waltzing Mouse Vintage Labels 18;  Stampendous! Pirate Gold embossing powder;  CraftSmart Chocolate and Gold inks;  Labels 18 Nestie;  BasicGrey Little Black Dress chipboard;  Fiskars Threading Water border punch and Round corner punch;  Prima button;  Martha Stewart baker's twine;  Celebrate It ribbon.  Tools:  sewing machine.

I made this thank you card for the following challenges:  Simon Says Stamp and Show -  something old (red ribbon), something new (stamp, button, twine, papers, chipboard);  Simon Says Stamp - anything goes;  Lily Pad - use chipboard;  BasicGrey - anything goes using BasicGrey (see actual products above);  Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge - sketch #78:

I want to show some appreciation to you for bailing me out of such a setting. Right after looking out throughout the the web and obtaining tips that were not powerful, I thought my life was gone. Living without the presence of solutions to the difficulties you have fixed all through your entire short article is a crucial case, as well as ones which may have badly affected my entire career if I had not noticed your blog. Your own personal natural talent and kindness in taking care of a lot of stuff was invaluable. I am not sure what I would've done if I had not come upon such a step like this. I'm able to at this point look forward to my future. Thank you so much for the expert and amazing guide. I won't think twice to endorse the blog to anyone who should get guidelines on this area.
