Thank You!

Good morning, the weekend is here and it's time for a brand new challenge at Sweet Stampin' , this week we want you to say 'Thank You'. I, for one, was really pleased with this theme as I've used up all my 'thank you' cards and need to replenish! My card is fairly simple using another cute image from That Craft Place, coloured with copics and matted onto a piece of spotted DP. I cut apertures into my card base, then stuck the die cut words over the apertures. I used the same spotted DP inside the card. It looked a bit bare so I stamped 3 tiny hearts and doodled little dots to echo those on the image. Unfortunately the photo is a bit naff....the white card base looks a  completely different colour to the white card the image is printed on...IRL the difference doesn't show...perhaps it's something to do with the different texture of the cardstock....
Hope you can join us this week, just click here to be transported to the challenge blog, where you can enjoy the beautiful creations from my lovely teamies...then show us what you can do! If you need further incentive there's a fabulous prize for one lucky winner from our sponsor this week, Crafts and Me.
Just remember to stamp something!
Have a great weekend.
