Welcome to the start of a brand new week

Morning all,

Hope you all enjoyed a terrific weekend, we enjoyed a sociable Saturday with friends and a lazy Sunday.

I've a quick thank you card to share with you, made for a pal who thoughtfully made us a batch of chocolate chip cookies! The cookies? Scrumptious btw

My card
The front, back and inside of my card along with the front and back of my envelope

Materials used:
  • White C6/A2, 250gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Two pieces of white Bristol board cut to fit and one piece of navy card, to mat
  • Hampton Arts solid sentiment stamped using Versafine onyx black ink
  • Inkadinkado (from the meadow set) stamped using Versafine majestic blue ink

  3. Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - challenge No. 68 - ANYTHING GOES
And now for an ATC ... which I made for someone who owns a store and is thinking about stocking Paper Artsy products ... so it was a no brainer that I should (mostly) use P.A. images on the ATC - I added their website to the details on the reverse too.

  • ATC blank
  • Snippets of card in white and navy
  • Paper Artsy image (ZA17) and sentiment (JOFY17) stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Derwent coloursoft pencils used to colour

Lovely thank you card. LOVE those floral stamps - must try and play with my set soon!

GREAT idea to get the store owner interested in stocking PA stamps with the fab penguin ATC.

Hope you're starting to feel better.

Hugs, Sarn xxx
