A few thank you cards... and a frantic search
Grr... you ever have one of those days where nothing quite goes right... it doesn't quite go wrong either but just not quite right... yeah... It was one of those. The time at the crafting table went well, until my cricut mat gave up the ghost and I went about searching for the replacement ones I swear I own... I cannot find them anywhere. It does mean that I did get more cleaning done, more organizing done. And I made two thank you cards that I've been needing to get out in the mail. The cards were super quick and fun. On the blue card, the flower shapes are inked through a mask so they are very subtle on the page. That heart vine bouquet is one of my favourite stamps and it's one of the cheapy dollar bin stamps from michaels. On the green card... the flowers are die cuts and held in place with Making Memories Snaps... don't let the name fool you... there is no snap function, you still need a setter (thank you Crop-a-dile) but they do give a cleaner backside finish than brads. They also have a fairly long shank so there is room to crimp them closed but still have movement on the attached piece. I've been putting off putting together the items for my scrap giveaway since no one has yet posted but I suppose I ought to get a picture put up soon. As soon as I narrow down my choices, I'll make up a bundle and take a pic. I'll post the actual contents list as well, because a picture maybe won't tell you much.
