Thank you dots..

Hello! Thanks for stopping in today. Well, it's the last day of the 3 day weekend. It's been beautiful here with the exception of the Cicadas that are here. I really really hate those things. This is the year they come out with a vengeance here...I think it's every 14 years or so that they come out to mate and die..nice. LOL. They are SO yucky and loud and will fly into your hair or mouth if you're not careful. You should see me walking from the building to my car after work. I totally spazz out if one gets near me..haha.

So, on to crafting. My card today uses this week's awesome Card Patterns Sketch. I really REALLY like this sketch and have printed it out to use again. It's so simple, but has so many possibilities. Here is the sketch:



I decided to make a Thank You card using one of my favorite color combos: Light Blue, Red, and Kraft. Here is my card:



I used my new Wonderful Words stamps (and additions) from Papertrey. LOVE this set. So many options with this set and the die-cuts are really thin BUT cut cleanly and don't rip when you're taking them off the die - that's awesome! I also threw in the linen/canvas impression plate that I adore. It gives just a hint of impression, but it's enough. Oh..and I used my woodgrain impression plate on the flowers and kraft panel. Can you tell I'm loving the impression plates? :)

Well, that's all I have for today. Enjoy your day!!

We had those bugs here back in 05 and I was freaked out. I did not want to leave the house for 2 weeks. I am total spaz whenever I encounter them - hang in there!

Lovely card!!

Very pretty card. Yuck to those bugs. We have love bugs, but they are small and just annoying.

Love the colors on this one Keva, very patriotic! That polka dot paper is just perfect. I love all the texture you added, and yes, I can tell you really brought out the impressions plates on this one. Great take on this sketch.
