Thank You x2 47

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, December 27, 2011 @ 8:46 PM | , ,

Hi there! Things have been a little hectic around here. Connor and Meredith are off from school for three weeks for Winter break so that means keeping two teenagers busy for me :) I think I drove over 100 miles today! Seriously! Meredith is volunteering at the younger children's horse riding camp and I am so proud of her for doing so. Unfortunately the stables are at least 45 miles away from our home. sigh... Connor is playing Varsity soccer and he has practice for 3 hours everyday, much closer to home. Thank goodness :) It's all good, just a lot of driving around town. Are you busy chauffeuring children around town as well?

I had time to sit down later in the evening and make a few much needed Thank You cards. I combined some pretty fun patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue collection along with a few of my favorite stamps from Waltzingmouse. One of the very first reasons why I fell in love with Claire's stamps is that she has designed many to coordinate flawlessly with Spellbinders dies. 
For this card, I stamped the pretty label image from Very Vintage Labels No. 1, used a Labels One die template to cut the image, stamped a sentiment from Rescue Remedies Additions then finished it off with a fun Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue ~ Chipboard Pops embellishment:
Here's another Thank You card using the same Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue collection, just a different pattern:
For this card, I used a fun polka dot label from Holiday Labels No. 14, used a Labels Fourteen die to cut the image then added a fun Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue ~ Chipboard Pops embellishment:
That's all I have for today ~ thanks so much for visiting! Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Holiday Labels No. 14, Very Vintage Labels No. 1, Rescue Remedies Additions
Dies & Machine: Spellbinders Labels Fourteen, Labels One, Classic Scallop, Classic Triple Scallop, Grand Calibur, PTI doily
Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue collection
Embellishments: Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue ~ Chipboard Pops
