Sweet & Simple Thank You

I am in the process of making a lot of thank you cards for various people...I'm so far behind with it! From house warming thank you's to school volunteers to animal dr's for helping us with our sweet Rocky. Here is the 1st one I made-so simple, yet i love it! 

I used a Lori Whitlock card base and an A2 envelope liner file that I found in the silhouette store. I used "My Mind's Eye" Indie chic "free spirit" double sided paper for both the card and envelope. I then stamped Thank You onto Jaded Blossom's Mini Tag Dies using their School Rules stamp set. I had the glitter flowers in my stash already =) 

Thanks for stopping by =) 

This is my sweet Rocky that we lost way too soon. RIP little buddy <3

Gonna Party! It's Connie's Birthday! Let's go!

For my project, I made a really fun Shaker Card! This is my 1st one ever...its not perfect, but i'm very pleased with it!

I used my Silhouette to cut more of my project. The card and envelope is a set from the Sil. Store, a7 size. 


The shaker tag came from SVGcuttingfiles. Ann has such cute files in her store! I stamped the inside of the tag with Jaded Blossoms "Birthday Treat Tags". I put some sequins inside the tag to "shake" around. The candle flame is embossed with a swirly cuttlebug folder that i have (i'm sorry, i can't remember the name of it)
I added a small bow to the bottom and put a faux stitch border around the card.

The envelope liner has the same matching paper as the card mat does. I used JB's "Birthday Bingo" for the sentiment and the die is their "flag die".

I hope you enjoyed my project today and are having fun along the hop! 

Ms. Connie, here's a very Happy Birthday to you! 

 Up next is Jessica!

Here is our complete line up in case you get lost along the way.
