Thank You with SS

Hello crafty friends!

Make sure to join us on the Sweet Stamps blog, we'd love to see what you create with our challenge in mind! You have a chance at winning $20 to purchase some "sweet" things of your own!!

This week's Sweet Stamps Challenge is:

Thank You

With Thanksgiving a few days away, what a perfect challenge to have!

I always find it important to give friends and family thank you cards, even if it is just for something little they did.  I am so thankful for all the wonderful people in my life...even all my crafty friends I only know through the web! :)  I appreciate all your love and support!

With that, here is the center step card I created:
Just LOVE the new Center Step Die SS is carrying!!

I also really like the new Queen Anne's Wildflowers Silhouette!
For this card I first used a light pink ink to stamp the image on the left, then used VersaMark to stamp it again a little lower to the right and then embossed with some Deliquesce Super Sparkle Pink from Creative Inspirations!  I then used CI Paint Fairy Dust to add some shimmer to the light pink stamped silhouette!

I used TuTu Pink to make all the die cut flowers shimmer!!

This is also a nice time to just send a HUGE THANK YOU to Stacey, owner of SweetStamps.com, and her mom Sandy!  Both are such lovely and sweet ladies!
I was able to meet both of them at the Madison stamp show this past weekend!  What an honor!

A thank you to you and Sweet Stamps. I never knew the name of this stamp "Queen Ann's Wildflowers Silhouette". I purchased it at a stamp show 2 years ago and it was only the rubber part from thier envelopes table. So I never knew the name until stumbling on your blog today.

I posted a couple of cards with this stamp two weeks ago on my blog and couldn't tell anyone the name of the stamp.

By the way... your card is just lovely. Good luck in the Flourishes challenge where I saw your card. I do love that stamp.
