Thank you!

Here's a picture of a card I made for a friend who gifted us with a 6 month supply of coffee from Hawaii, such a generous, kind friend we think of him each morning (hee-hee).

I thought he'd appreciate a thank you card with this theme as he is a business man (plus it's difficult to create "man" cards, I think).  I used a tip from my daughter Nance Lempinen Leedy of Canopy Crafts who made this card sometime ago and actually cut a slit, inserted the smaller paper with the stamped sentiment, I thought this was so cute.  I inserted a blank white panel inside so I could hand write a note of thanks.

Supplies used:
All Stampin' Up, oops except the banner which is a wine tag die from Papertrey Ink.

Feel free to leave me a comment regarding this card, I'd love to hear from you and  I'd like to wish all my blogging friends a

Happy Birthday

I needed a birthday card for my brother and decided I didn't want to use the same images I've used for other of his cards.  So, I gathered up some of the "funnier" sayings for birthdays and stamped them every which way on the card front.

I added a strip of black and white striped washi tape down the "spine" area and added black and white baker's twine on top of the tape. I added one sentiment in black ink to tie in with the tape and baker's twine, a few metallic discs and I was done.  I think it turned out pretty good, don't you?

Supplies used:
Many, many birthday sentiment stamps
SU inks and card stock

Would love to hear from ya!
