Sending Love - Week #3

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

   Wow three weeks of love! I am enjoying this challenge so much. It has been so fun to think of a person and decide to send them a card. I love how I get to think about that person as I make their card. I accidentally put two pieces of paper together while working on last weeks card, and when I looked at them I knew who I was going to send it to. It just radiated this person. (I would say who I am sending it to, but they are a reader of this little blog. Can't ruin the surprise)

Those are the lovely papers that spoke to me last week! I love the blue paper and the pink floral together. Such a happy combo.

To match the pattern on the blue paper I used my patterned scissors and cut both sides.

Using the left over card stock from the card I made a tag and brushed the edges with a brown stamp pad. I use this technique a lot to make things have that old look. 

The pink floral is going to serve as a pocket for my new tag

I wanted some texture so I stapled my "pocket" onto the soft blue paper. 

This week is a thank you card. One of my favorite things about this challenge is using supplies I have on hand. I have been using paper and stamps that I have not pulled out in quite some time. It sure is fun to use all of my stuff again.  

Ok I know you don't this, but I bought this beautiful lace ribbon when I went to a quilt show with my mom. It was such a fun day, and I love using the bits that I got from that special day. 

I felt like the card needed a bit more. I found this sweet little humming bird with some other little de-cals, and I thought it looked so cute. 

Lovely :)

I hope you all are having a great week.
