Thank You So Much

Happy Friday, everyone and Happy Halloween!! Did you dress up today?? If so, what was your costume?? Wow, it's been almost a week since I've posted. I had family visiting from Seattle and have been trying to catch up since they left, but it's overwhelming. If I haven't been around to your blog to visit, I will soon :)


It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog HERE and I have a project to share with you using two of the newest dies from the October release.


The papers are from My Mind's Eye and the edges have been lightly distressed with a Zutter DIA. A new Die-Versions Cut Out Thank You die was used for the focal point of this card. These cut out dies are so awesome - you can position them anywhere on the page and the sentiment just stands out so beautifully.


"So Much" is from the new Typewriter Font die set. The butterflies are Wee Petites Buggy dies. They were covered in sugar coating and popped up with foam tape.


The matching envelope features a Whispers Butterfly Kisses die also covered in sugar coating. The border along the top is a Whispers Lacy Dots die.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! I have some exciting news to share with you next week so I hope you will stop back by!! Have a wonderful weekend!! :)

It is a bit overwhelming when you miss a few days from blogging/crafting......know the feeling:( I swear I have been playing catch up all year!

  37. Happy that you got to enjoy some 'down time' and spend it with family. Love the colors you've got in this strong contrast with this gorgeous cutout die. So very dramatic and effective. Of course your trims & layers always enhance any die that you use for a card. TFS & Big hugs. Don't fret about slow visits! We all understand. Life has priority over crafting & blogging! Hugs
