Thank You Cards




Hello bloggers! I have been missing since I have been recovering from house invasion  by house guests and  am in the process of getting my apartment painted... And Aleeza has been behaving rather strangely after we have got back from our vacation... She is so clingy and cranky - hopefully it is a phase. Just that sometimes I am strapped of patience.

Now to this card - Have used white card stock and have stamped it with a Hero Arts Design block in green. Distressed the sides with crushed olive.
 The labels have been cut with my new punches and distressed as well. 
That 'oh so cute' flower with a lady bug on it has been sent to me by dear Sandra.  It is  a wooden embellie and looks really cute, doesn't it? Thanks, dear friend!
  
Another version of the same card on purple card stock which looks  blue! Have used a metallic stamp pad here...The strips of paper at the bottom are metallic  tissue papers which have been hand torn. The ribbon is from my stash. The metallic butterfly is store bought and the sentiment is hand written  - surprise, surprise!

 
This card is so simple and plain but it sold!!! I have gone over the stamp with a purple Sakura pen which made it look quite nice in real life. Have used the same metallic paper and the sentiment is handwritten as you can guess. The metallic flowers and butterflies are from my stash.


Hope you are all well and enjoying summer...

I am trying my best to resume crafting  and blogging full swing.

Hugs and thanks for your never-failing love and encouragement which has added so much sunshine to my life,
Monica

Hi Monica - Your cards are gorgeous - I love the swirly design.
I hope your daughter is feeling better - is she worried about going back to school or something, new teacher, more difficult lessons, different children in class?
Love, Andrea xx

You know Monica, you are such a whiz at creating the most beautiful cards. I just love how you can take designs from papers and make them stand alone like you did the purses and shoes - I'll have to find some of that paper and do the same - it looks so much cuter the way you used it! I love looking at the things you've made as they are so beautiful. You're such a talented and lovely lady.
