Thanks


I had been meaning to play along with Jay Gee's Nook Challenge this month since I missed last month's challenge and I always love the gorgeous inspiration photos.   This month was no exception!  I was inspired by the soft pastels and the patterns in the pillows.  And...don't tell but the little banner for the thanks was a mistake....when I stamped thanks originally it smudged a bit.  So my fix was to stamp it onto the banner and then add the button.  Have to say I'm happy with the way it turned out.   

Hope you have a fabulous Monday!  I'm traveling for work this week...but I'll be back with more blog posts.  We'll see if I feel chatty or if the posts this week are short and sweet.

Ever noticed how I have a lot of those banners or the modern label on my cards? Exact same reason! The perfect cover up, though :) I love the way the flower is coming out of the button and the gingham :)

LOL, I would never have guessed your banner was a cover up, it looks perfect with the button. I love that gingham too, lovely card Lynn. Thanks so much for joining us at Jay Gee's :)

Don't you love those 'design opportunities'! lol! They happen to me ALL THE TIME! Sometimes they actually result in something more inventive than I would have come up with otherwise! Love the simply stamped panel in fab colours (loving the add in of grey!) and wonderful open images!

I'm so behind on checking in on my favorite blogs! So I've just been looking at all your recent cards and wow - they are all so fabulous!!! That rainbow card for JUGS is totally amazing....as are your Christmas cards. I will stop back often for more inspiration!

Creative correction is awesome Lynn! I do it all the time, I love layers--hee hee. Your card on the other hand is really gorgeous, I love those stamps and the colours too. Don't work too hard this week.
