A collection of thank yous

Saturday, June 20, 2009

I woke up at just after 5 yesterday morning and couldn't go back to sleep. I think I was still stewing about my news from Thursday. Anyway, I decided to make the most of my time and go to my craft area and make a few cards. All I knew is that I wanted to use my kraft cardstock again so that was my starting off point.

You can kind of tell in the pictures but I decided to scissor distress all the papers for my cards. Can you tell that I've been on a keep it simple kick as of late?

Patterened Paper: PTI Friends til the End
Stamps: CTMH Say it in Style , Playful Flourishes
Other: CTMH white grosgrain ribbon, PTI buttons

So what do you have planned for this weekend? I'll be doing some studying along with probably helping Devin rip out our bathtub. It's got a crack in it and we need a new one. If we do start on the project today, I'll be posting pictures later. Until next time, take care.

Very pretty! I think Kraft cardstock is about to make a big resurgence - if it hasn't already. I'm going to leisurely putz around today.Hope your bathtub project goes well! Enjoy your day!

I am so sorry you didn't pass!!! Your cards look great, maybe distressing cards with your scissors can take away some of your frustration! See you tonight, maybe we can drink away your woes in italian cream sodas!!!

Oh My Goodness - the removal of the bathtub has me twitching nervously! YIKES! I'm so glad you have someone capable there to help. It looks like a HUGE task (and I don't mean just because it's large, either!).

I love the pink and kraft colors together and that flower is a really pretty stamp! You've created a nice grouping of cards! Good luck - keep posting photos of the bathroom! I'm anxious to see what happens next!
