A Quick and Easy Thank You


It's been a while.  Way too long, actually!!  Things have been busy and my card making has had to go on hiatus :(.  I squeezed a little one in today, which I had intended to make for both The Paper Players #158 challeng and for CAS(E) this Sketch #41, but I missed the deadline for Paper Players :(.  

Paper Players was a colour challenge this week, and here's what I was working with:

And here's the sketch:

And here's my card:

As soon as I saw the "bow tie" image as part of the sketch, I knew I wanted to used a very old Amuse Stamp that I had, and build the rest from there.  I paired it up with one of my fave TAWS birdie stamps, and it was pretty much done!  Easy peasy!  This is just a little thank you card for a friend who had a few of us over for a BBQ this past week - and when I say a few, I mean about 20 of us!  We all had a fabulous time, and the food was sooooo good!!

I have really missed playing along with challenges lately - hopefully I can play along a little more often in the next few weeks!

Thanks for dropping by!


  1. You're back! You're back *jumping up and down, waving arms wildly* Yayyyy...I've missed you tons! Your comeback card is cutie-patootie adorable! And your signature "Shannon heart" is just perfectly placed, as it always is. LOVE this, and your friend will, too - a whole bunch!! Thrilled to see your comment on my post today (happy dancing resulted!); and yes, the family days are coming to a close :( far too quickly!! Still time for more moments, though - and I'm going to capture as many as I can!! Talk SOON!! xoxo

  2. Simply adorable--love that birdie!

  3. Hi Shannon, thank you for visiting my blog and commenting on my card! I have to say that your birdie is a real cutie pie!

  4. This is so cute and so appropriate for a backyard BBQ thanks! These colors work so well with the kraft colored card stock. Awesome photo too :)

    Hey, I definitely hear you on MIA summer thing! I haven't had time to even look at my new Silhouette that arrived last week! Brady is on her way home as I type (11 hour drive from Calgary) so I likely won't be commenting or card making this week either! Oh well, we all know that winter is on the way and that means no outside work and more time for playing....indoors!

  5. So cute! That retro shape makes such a cool background for that adorable bird. I love it!

  6. Don't you just love it when you immediately see a sketch and a vision of the card pops right into your head! This is an adorable take on the challenge, Shannon, and it's good to see you back! Don't stay away too long!!

  7. OH MY! I love that you had a stamp to match that image in the sketch! FUN! LOVE this little card-- just too cute! Perfect amount of color and detail! AMMMMMMMMMAZING:)

    Don't worry about missing the deadline-- I miss mine all the time:) LOL!

    And HOOOOOOOOOOORAY for getting some time in to craft:) <3
