Thanks So Much 45

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, October 7, 2009 @ 11:33 AM | , , ,

Hi Girls! I would like to share some REALLY exciting news with all of you :) First things first! I would like to send a GINORMOUS Thank You to the girls over at The Color Throwdown challenge site for selecting me to be their Featured Stamper based on my Hello Friend card! Yipee Skipee!!!! My other EXCITING news is that I have been invited to be a Design Team Member of the NEW Just Us Girls Challenge team!!!! Thank You Girls!!! The Just Us Girls Challenge blog is currently under construction BUT you can still play along with this week's sketch! All you have to do, is create a card using the JUGS1 sketch, (which can be found by clicking either Pam's or Kristin's name here, then along with your comment, attach the link for your creation! I will have more exciting news to share with you on Saturday! I look forward to seeing what you can do with your creative side!!! :) Thank You girls for all your support & for joining me on this papercrafting journey!!

I feel so Blessed & have so much to be Thankful for, I thought it was appropriate to make a Thank You card & gift box today. I combined 3 challenges to make this set. In no particular order: 1. For color inspiration this week's color combo from the Color Throwdown #63, CTD63 2. For sketch inspiration Sketch #136 from Card Positioning Systems, & 3. this week's Pile it on - Challenge #18 - Three Dimensional. For more inspiration, please visit all the sites I have mentioned! Hopefully you will join in the fun! Thanks for looking! Be Sweet!

Here is my Thank You card & gift box:

As a lil' accent, I adhered a medium sized punched flower & button on the inside of the card.

You can see from this angle ALL the dimension going on here!

This is the Petite version of the PTI's Tucked Away My Timeless Template designed by the amazingly talented Lauren Meader. Don't be fooled by the word Petite! This lil' box easily holds 6 Hersheys Nuggets!

Ingredients Used: PTI's My Timeless Template Tucked Away template Stamps: PTI Beautiful Blooms, 2008 Holiday Tag Collection, SU Sincere Salutations Ink: SU More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand, Old Olive Paper: SU Kraft, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Very Vanilla Sprinkles: EK Success flower punches x 3, PTI twine, SU tag punches x 2, Offray ribbon, generic brads & buttons
