Well, I made it back......

....not quite as soon as I had hoped, but better late than never! I am still trying to figure out this blog thing. I am having a heck of a time getting my photos and text to go where I want it. Maybe one of these days I'll figure it out. Anyone have any hints, I'd appreciate it. Now on to today's card. I am definitely in a Fall mood these days and I seem to be having a great need for Thank You cards lately. For this card I brought out one of my favorite Papertreyink sets - Vintage picnic. I stamped the image on rustic white CS and colored it in using colored pencils and gamsol ( my all time favorite way to color), sponged around the image and around all edges of paper with antique linen distress ink and then cut and embossed the image using a classic square nestability die. Matted it with a piece of patterned paper which was cut with a classic scallop nestability die. All patterned paper is by BoBunny. The ribbon is actually a piece of fabric torn into a long strip. Lastly I had to add some buttons and a little bit of lace from my stash to spice things up. Voila, a finished card! I really like the oranges and blues together. Well, thanks for popping in for a visit- until next time!



  1. Another pretty card and a great combination of colors. I love the way you have the "thank you" coming off of the card like a tag. Glad you made it back to post again.

  2. This is so gorgeous! I love the paper and the lace on the basket!! I like the way you added the tag too!
