Thank You in Turquoise

Time sure does fly.  I thought I had just entered a post but it has already been 3 days.  I guess I've been busy.  Yesterday I spent most of the day at my grandson's Boy Scout Pinewood Derby.  He did fine, for a 9 year old, but he did not win any of he big prizes.  He came in 2nd in two of his races and 4th and 3rd in the other two.  Over all I don't know where he placed.  If you don't know how the derby works, basically he would have had to come in first in all four of his races and additionally have really fast race times to get in the top winners.  But he had lots of fun making the car and lots of fun running the race.  And I always have fun playing my part as grandma and cheering and clapping and congratulating.  And, of course, taking pictures.  I'll try to show a pic or two here once I transfer them from my camera. 

Ok, so back to basics.  Here is my card entry for today.  It is nearly a duplicate of a very pretty one I saw on Dawn Olchefske's blog (thank you Dawn).  I was looking for a thank you style that would be really quick so that I could make a bunch and/or be able to make one quickly when I wanted to send out a thank you.  I have to have some on hand or it takes me forever to get my thank yous out.  Shame on me, I just got my Christmas thank you cards out last week.  Boy, am I bad!

About the only difference between my card and Dawn's is that I didn't have any more Marina Mist cardstock so I used Tempting Turquoise.  Therefore my Marina Mist seam binding ribbon did not coordinate well, so I used some rick rack I had laying around.  But I love the color and the simplicity of this card.  The inside has a little more of the Fresh Vintage stamp showing.  And did you know Fresh Vintage is a FREE stamp set if you purchase $50 in catalog product?  Well it is, and I love this set the most of any other set in the SAB book.  Well, I really like Outlined Occasions too, but I love this one.

Next time I'll show you more of the kits I have been making.  I have really been creating the past few days, but still can't show until I deliver today and tomorrow.

Until next time..........

Crafty Hugs,
