Thanks for everything Pt. 1

Hola Peeps! Gracious, it feels like forever since I have stamped and blogged. All of my posts last week were scheduled because I had my entire family (and most of hubby's side) in town for a huge luau. They all came in starting Tuesday and the last of them left yesterday. I never knew how big of a production hosting can was exhausting. I am mentally and physically kaput. In the process of all this *hosting*, I fractured a bone in my foot, lost a great decorative towel, had a baby poo on our sofa, got dirt on the carpet, ruined a Cruisinart skillet, and been to Walmart more times than I care to recall....whew!! It was all worth it, but man was it a challenge.

Anyway, so this week I am making Thank You cards for family members that really went above and beyond in their support of me and also in their contributions to the luau itself. This was our first time hosting anything large, and a few people really stepped up to the plate remembering things from their experiences that helped us tremendously. Tonight is the first of the cards..

I used similar colors on a card I made for the papertrey hop in May, but this was is, translucent I I sponged a little Vintage Cream ink on the flowers just to make them pop a bit. I love the way the flowers look on the kraft paper all naked, ya know?

Ok, well So You Think You Can Dance is back on, so I gotta jet. Back tomorrow with my 2nd Thank You card! Take care!

Stamps: Lily of the Valley, Inside Out: Thank You (papertrey)
Cardstock: Kraft, Lemon Tart (papertrey)
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Vintage Cream (papertrey)
Extras: Grosgrain (papertrey)

What an elegant card. I really like the way you sponged the flowers. And as usual, the ribbon treatment is the perfect finishing touch.

I love this stamp on kraft, Keva! I don't think I would have tried that on my own, but it works. And of course the patented Keva ribbon treatment makes it YOU! :-D

Maggie said...

You get a gold medal for going through that whole experience! I hope your foot is OK, and so is your couch (ewwww!)....

Dana said...

You fractured a bone in your foot? Good grief girl, what is your family? A bunch of bears? *grin* Sounds like a good time was had with a few mishaps. Love the card.
