Good morning all my sweet, crafty friends!! Hoping that you had a wonderful holiday season with your friends and family. I was able to get my entire family healthy just in the nick of time, yay!!!!!, so thankfully we were able to enjoy Christmas and New Year's :))
With all the prep and family functions during Christmas; and myself and the kids being sick, I really didn't have any time for crafting. So today, as the kids headed off to school *first time in weeks!!*, I shut the phone off, cranked me some tunes on Pandora, and gave the current sketch at MFT a go!
I loved the sketch this week, and how easily my card just fell into place. I decided to go with a Thank You card for some of those pressies we received. Can never say Thank You enough, IMHO!
I used the adorable Violin Girl stamp set from the store. She was stamped off in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored in Copics. She was a brandy-new stamp for me that I had won awhile ago but never inked, and was oh-so fun coloring this morning. I used some new papers from Authentique called Delightful and distressed the sentiment in some Studio G Chalk Ink in pink to match. The twine is from Queen & Co. and the pink pearls have been sitting in my stash.
One of my silent, crafty new year's resolution is to work on finishing the inside of the card right after creating the front of it. I'm hoping my commitment to this lasts, lol....I always seem to leave the inside until the very moment I'm about to give it to someone. Eek! So here is the inside using some of the scraps, a sentiment from the All Occasions Sentiments stamp set from MFT, and the very same Fiskars punch used on the front of the card:
I do wish you and your families love, good health and wonderful memories in 2013. Happy New Year and may it be one of your best years yet!
