Daisy Delight Thank You Card

Hi Friends,

This week I'm celebrating this beautiful Daisy stamp set and corresponding Delightful Daisy DSP!

Today, Wednesday and Friday you will see some very pretty ideas!

Make sure you check back each day to see what I've been doing!

OK — I might be a bit "old school" but I firmly believe in sending written thank you notes. (and btw, hand written notes are GAINING in popularity once again!!! YIPPEE)

I find special delight in a handmade card delivered by the postman. (I LOVE going to my mailbox, opening the cover and FINDING a DECORATED ENVELOPE! I KNOW it's a special note from a SPECIAL someone!!!!)

I just love this bright and cheery card and can imagine it bringing a smile to someone's face when they open it up.


This handmade Thank You card was made on a Crushed Currey card base and layered with Night of Navy card stock with Delightful Daisy DSP over that. 

The Daisies from the Daisy Delight stamp set were stamped in Crushed Curry ink onto Crushed Curry card stock and punched out with the coordinating punch, attached together with glue dots and then attached to the card front and accented with a faceted gem in the center. (and of COURSE I just HAD to add some Wink of Stella to the petals!)

A simple "thank you" onto a strip of whisper white is easily flagged at the end using the triple banner punch.


This is a great bundle! 

Lots of great images and useful sentiments and a punch making a 3D effect quick and easy. 

Don't forget that I'll be showing you this bundle in other cards later this week. 

Check back for more great ideas!

Monday Night Class and photos of pretty cards!

Hi all!


Ok here are the cards we made today.  We used the Number of Years stamp set and the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series paper.


What do YOU think?

2016-05-01 19.32.41

Note that the medallion does NOT have anything in it but everyone used the Big Shot to cut out numbers to put inside it. This is my card and as of this moment I don't know who will get it –hence no numbers!

2016-05-01 19.32.54


I just love this one –what do YOU think????


2016-05-01 19.33.07


This one and the next used the same format –simple and sweet.

2016-05-01 19.33.17


Everyone made 2 of each design AND then we made a cute pocket to hold them.

It ties on the side with the ribbon. A very nice Mother's Day or gift for someone sweet!

2016-05-01 19.33.31


Ok that's it!!


Now for tomorrow's class we 'll make these cards. This is the new stamp set commemorating the ONE MILLIONTH Paper Pumpkin kit !!

I absolutely love this card –the colors are Wisteria Wonder and Mint Macaron –love love love it!

2016-05-01 18.55.16


I'm sure I'll have another card for tomorrow  but right now I MUST go watch my dear Red Sox with my sweet husband — or at least until I fall asleep!

Hope to see you tomorrow night!


hugs to all and welcome the merry month of MAY!
