A quick thank you card


I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far.

I have been trying to get ahead on my blog posts at the moment in preparation for my little trip to Adelaide to see my parents at the end of the month, YAY!!

DH is staying home to look after the oldest and youngest boys while our middle son is coming with me for his first plane trip. I took our eldest to Sydney a couple of years ago and he had a ball so I thought it might be nice to have a little one on one time with our middle son this time.

I had some scraps left over on my desk this afternoon from a card I had made for an upcoming challenge ( come back on Sunday to see it :-D) so I decided to whip up a quick thank you card (cause that is so much more fun than tidying up). With the end of the school year fast approaching I'm going to be needing a few thank you cards and gifts.

Sorry the photo is really bad, I don't know what is up with my camera at the moment. I must have accidently changed some setting on it.

For this card I have used the following:

Cardstock - Close to Cocoa, Brocade Blue and Very Vanilla from Stampin Up
Designer Paper - Retired Stampin Up
Stamp - Pocket Silhouettes from Stampin Up
Ribbon - Brocade Blue and Very Vanilla from Stampin Up

Thanks for stopping by today.

Michelle :-)
