{Make a Card on a Monday!}

Monday, beginning of the week! Never a fun day I admit. However today had a few things on my to do list (including buy some thank you gifts, get milk, sort out photos for my document:2010, make a couple of thank you cards, buy stuff to make baby shower thank you cards and buy a birthday present!) All started well and good....except my car wouldn't start. So after a few phone calls a slight change of plans all proceeded.
Here are the pics as I made my thank you card for my sister, she organised majority of my baby shower so wanted to make her a card to say thanks! Over the past few weeks have really enjoyed making a quick card here and there. Might try make a few more as I'm sure when baby arrives I won't have time!
First I chose some paper and cardstock from scrap bag (which is all I really use for card making!) plus a large chipboard U. I had an open packet of these on my desk so seemed like the perfect choice. Trimmed the paper to the size needed. Next I picked out some contrasting paper and some letter stamps. I love these little studio g ones! Perfect size!

I stamped the THANK onto it and cut out a rectangle and folded it in half.Then it was attached to the pink dotted swiss to one side - bit like a clothes label

I then picked out a bit of contrasting ribbon and tied round the heart paper before sticking to the card.

And ta-dah! Card done! Phew! Quick work!

Also here's a couple of layouts I finished off recently.

This was a photo taken by SJ back in November. So cute I love it. I've used bazzil glazed cardstock and dotted swiss (the black), some thickers, some bling and some hambly. Oh and the Happiness label I downloaded from two peas - designed by the lovely Shimelle Laine!

And this one. I took this photo of K back in October - he looks so lovely! I used Kraft bazzil, cosmo cricket, thickers, and a few other bits I had laying about!

Must go have some lunch now! BYEEEE enjoy the rest of your Monday!
