Mini Thank You's

Hello to you all out there.
I know I have been a bad blogger of late and unfortunately it can't be helped.
I am in the middle of packing up a house, organizing a birthday party and
sewing for my children' s school.
So when it rains it pours as they say.
I wanted to show some mini Thank You cards I made for a very special reason.
A dear friend of mine had a birthday and I wondered what could I get her for a present.
The idea of getting her a Big Shot came to mind, as I knew she'd always wanted one.
I wanted to share this idea with other friends to ask if they wanted to chip in to make this happen.
Well they kindly did and to show my appreciation I made them these cards.

The stamp set I used is called Reason To Smile, it came from the June promotion which is no longer running.
The card size is 4x4 in Pool Party and Whisper White.
After coloring in the daisies I went over it with Champagne Mist just to give it a little shimmer.
The present was well received and I am so glad we did it for her.
Thank you for stopping by.

My Hubby's Birthday

Hello to you all and happy Weekend to you.
I am posting a card for my lovely husband who turned a year older last month.
I had in my mind to use the colour Not Quite Navy this time, as it's not been a colour I have used for sometime.
I combined it with Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.
Lets see what you think.
You may recognize the stamp set which is Pennant Parade and used the coordinating punch.
I folded a piece of" Big Top Birthday"DSP at the bottom of the card.
The Happy Birthday sentiment is from "Sweet Cake" stamp set.
This was matted onto Daffodil Delight card stock.
I hope to post more until I move in the beginning of next month and then their will be a 7 year old party to organize. Busy Busy!!!
Until next time stay safe.
Stamp sets: Pennant Parade and Sweet Cake
Ink: Not Quiet Navy and Daffodil Delight
Card Stock:Whisper White, Daffodil Delight and Not Quite Navy
DSP: Big Top Birthday
Other: Not Quite Navy brads, 1/2 "circle punch, White string, Lattice embossing folder
