Warmest Thanks-Artful Elegance Card

Here is the final card I made today. As I was finishing this one up, Warmest-Thanks-Vervethe girls came out to my room to let me know they were home. I was pretty much tired anyway, so it was a great stopping point. I pretty much cased this card on Just Give Me Stamps. I just eyeballed the dimensions. The colors are Cocoa, Garden Green and Colonial White. It's pretty straightforward. I found my 1 3/8 circle punch gave the medallion stamp a great mat. I stamped one on Cocoa, matted in Cocoa and cut it in half. This card has lots of sponging done in Cocoa. The "ribbon" strip is Cocoa cardstock that is sanded a bit. I used my 1/2 inch square punch to punch the tail on either side.

I hope you've enjoyed the cards. I sure enjoyed making them.

On the knitted hat front...I made the pom-poms and added them to the hats. They add a nice touch. I can't remember if I mentioned that the yarn I used for the hats is a chenille type of yarn. It's not a good yarn to use to make pom-poms (don't ask me how I know). The girls picked out a color that works with the hat color. Now I'm working on some matching scarves. In fact, Amy asked if I worked on the scarf while they were gone. (um, that would be a no).

Thanks for visiting. If luck is on my side...I may find my way out to my craft room again tomorrow. I probably should space out the sharing of the cards, but I get too excited to wait. Ü

Your cards are so beautiful! You have such an eye for elegance in your cards, and I'm amazed at who prolific you are in making them! How's your ankle these days?

Can't wait to start class with you on Monday!
