Thanks for Everything...

Hi everyone! So, welcome to a new week, huh?  How fast do those weekends go by? Two days during the work week feel much different from two days during the weekend! :)

So, today's card is a muted thank you card. I really really love these colors together. Very Earthy and even a touch masculine. I made it with the Curtain Call Color Challenge in mind. Here are this weeks colors:



And here is my creation:






I did the same "ink thing" to stamp my card today. I used Fresh Snow and Mixed it with a touch of the Tim Holtz Distress ink in Frayed Burlap. It's a great color.  Similar to Kraft paper, but a bit darker. It's very nice. If you look closely, you can tell that the middle of the damask design is lighter. That's where more of the Fresh Snow ink is. I think it gives it a cool look. I also love this sentiment. It's from Inside Out: Thank You which is one of my favorite sentiment sets in the world. I saw on Nicole Heady's blog just today that Papertrey is coming out with Inside Out: Holidays! Eek! That will definitely get major usage this Christmas!

Well, that's it from me. I hope you have a fabulous day today and i'll see you tomorrow!
