Thanks a Bunch

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

and relax! Everything is put back in its rightful place and we are so happy with how it has all come together. The new recliner massage chairs are wonderful. I spent all yesterday getting the windows cleaned, curtains put back up and all my ornaments, glasses, books and videos back!

Today is all about crafting!

Today Toni from Stamps by Me is on Create and Craft at 5 pm and then on Sunday at 1 pm.
She will have the beautiful "Just the right words" dies and stamps that work perfectly with the dies.

I was on holiday when they first appeared so didn't make any samples but here is something I made to show you how beautiful they are.

Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 cream square scalloped edge base card.
2. Matted and layered black and pink card.
3. Stamped the "valued friend" stamp with Versafine then embossed, I then used the coordinating die to cut out and adhered to pink card.
4. I then die cut the word "thanks" from the die set and then stamped the "a bunch".
5. To finish off I coloured the flowers and leaves with Faber Castell pencils, then stencilled the hearts from my Love Heart stencil which you can find over on my website.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Crafty Catz #393 - Anything Goes
Crafting with Friends #55 - Anything Goes
Creative Fingers #141 - Anything Goes
Fussy and Fancy #199 - Thanks
QKR Stampede #270 - Give Thanks

Many thanks for visiting today!
Happy Crafting!
