Thank You Card Challenge

It's a new week and time for a new challenge at Cuttin' and Stampin'!   This week's challenge:  Thank You Card.   It's a great reminder that it's always good to have a few thank you cards on hand.  You never know when you're going to need one.   

I have a few cards on display at Cuttin' and Stampin', but I wanted to feature this one here.  I've been lucky to have several terrific teachers in my life, and I'm so grateful for them.

This card features a tree from Unity Stamp Company, the sentiment from the Kim Hughes (designer at Paper Smooches) collection from Cornish Heritage Farms, and red brads for apples.

So whether they're ultra-feminine, juvenile, masculine, minimalist or super-fancy, silly or serious, show off your Thank You Cards!  We'd love for you to link up and join our challenge, so click here to enter your creations.

Happy Stamping!

The Garden

It's time for a brand new challenge over at Cuttin' and Stampin'!   This week's challenge is:  GARDEN.

Spring is upon us and so is our newest challenge!  I'm posting from the Boise area and it's not quite time to plant yet here.  We've got about another month before it's safe to put plants outside.  However, the chill in the air doesn't prevent me from being excited about getting those first seeds sown.

So in anticipation of the first seedlings, I present my project:

This card features stamps from Unity Stamp Company, papers from Crate Paper, washi tapes from Freckled Fawn, and "noted" and ticket embellishments from BasicGrey. 

Now it's your turn!  Create something wonderfully reminiscent of the garden...  plants, flowers, veggies, etc.   Don't forget to show it off at Cuttin' and Stampin'!

Happy Stamping!
