Thanks So Very Much

Good morning!  Today’s card uses the bold colours from this week’s colourQ palette.  I wasn’t sure quite what to do with these colours so I went through all my paper pads (nicely thinned out with last week’s garage sale) and picked some paper that had the matching colours.  I got some happy mail from Ellen Hutson on Thursday so I broke open these fun printed tags…hmm, making me get the travel itch! 
Oh, it’s a beautiful weekend here and our patio set arrived from  So I’m going to be enjoying the new patio and maybe sneak a bit of stamping time in between coffee and wine ;)  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

what’s in it?

stamps: Making a Statement (Verve)

paper: white (PTI), This and That Charming (Echo Park)

ink: onyx (Versafine)

accessories: buttons, ribbon (PTI), bakers twine (Twinery), Printed Tags (Jenni Bowlin)

Have a drink for me on that gorgeous patio, OK?! :)
