Poppy Parade, Crackle Paint ~ Just a Note…..

Sometimes you just need a card so you can send a message, nothing specific but just a note.  It could say thinking of you inside or thank you, speedy recovery ~ I guess just about anything that will make someone’s day when they open the envelope.

The Crafting Forever stamp set has a stamp with just 3 pens and I love it, I have paired it with the Crackle Paint Background Stamp then rooted around in my stash to find the “Just a Note…. greeting which is from one of the Saleabration sets (now no longer available 😦 )

Vibrant Vases Fun Fold

Today’s card was made using my Stampartus along with the the Vibrant Vases Stamp Set.  This set has lots of vase and flower images so you can build up a really decorative panel for your card – which is an off-set Z fold.

I have no idea where the color combination came from other than I glanced down at some scraps on my work bench and Cajan Craze and Petal Pink were just lying there left over from previous projects ~ they just seemed ‘right’ and I went with it!

Remember we only have 5 more days before Sale-a-Bration is over for another year – please go ahead on place your order today – there are links below to my on-line store, I would so appreciate you shopping with me 🙂
