Quick Thanks

Hi friends!  It's Monday again and time for a new Mojo Monday sketch.  This week is tall & skinny sketch week, and I've made a 3.5" x 5.5" card to fit a regular size A2 envelope.

We had a fabulous Christmas, but there hasn't been a spare moment to sneak away and stamp.  So late last night, I made a quick no-frills card with the sketch.  'Tis officially the season for thank you cards now, so I pulled out an old favorite... You and I and the coordinating I Heart U Die Set and some vintage papers and got to work making a thank you card.


Most of the papers come from the Antique Lost & Found pad by My Mind's Eye.  The red polka dot paper is from my scrap pile (originally from some Christmas pad, I'm sure).  I inked up the edges of each panel with pumice stone distress in, hand cut the banners, then cut the U from the I Heart U Die Set and embossed the thank sentiment from You and I in white.  To make it not so stark, I colored lightly with a copic marker.  The red heart is a wood veneer that I covered with the same paper as the hand trimmed banner.  I finished off with some liquid pearl accents around the circle mat.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a wonderful last few days of 2014!  If you are in the mood to shop, Verve has a great SALE going on through January 4.  40% off all in-stock stamps and dies, and 60% off overstocks and remaining Christmas inventory!  Things are selling out fast, though, so hurry on over for best selection.
