Just a Quickie!

Hi all - a little bit of craftiness came together in the end.

Yesterday, I started off the day having a total mojo block.  I had a GDT card to make for the end of the month, a card for hubby (shhh it's a secret - will share at the end of the week) ;-) and then a card so that I would have something to share with you today.

I eventually got the mojo going and am happy to report that I actually made all three cards but can only share one with you today :-)

So, this is a little Thank You card for a friend. Very quick and simple, but really blows away the winter blues!

I started off with a 5.5" by 4.25" card base, made from kraft card stock.

The patterned papers are from a Colorbok Pack called Spring Morning. 

The sentiment stamp is from an Inkadinkado set called All Occasions Inchie.  I inked the edges of all the layers and a little bit of ribbon, tied off in a double bow.

Here's the inside of the card, the butterfly is from a stamp set bought a long time ago in the UK.

That's it for now then, just a quickie to share with you.

I hope to be in the craft room again today and try to get ahead on a few things.  Hope you are all having a good week so far.

This card is being entered in the following challenges.

  20. It's adorable, Karon! I love the bright colors. I've had a bit of a mojo block as well. I think it's the after Christmas let down and I also blame it on the tax reports and such that has to be done in January. Ugh. Hoping to finish them all TODAY! And then maybe I can find my mojo again! Love your card!
