Sophie's Thank Yous

Got a quick one for you today. I am in the middle of trying to find my desk so that I can make some swap cards for Stamp NE (only 9 sleeps left, eeeeeekkkkk, I'm so excited) and I have a huge box of Stampin' UP stuff due to arrive any moment. And another one tomorrow. I have a few Sizzix dies coming today. I could not resist the Beautiful Butterflies or Top Note any longer. I've also got the Manhattan Flower Impressions Die coming, along with a bunch of coordinating stuff. Something about that line just drew me in.

Ok enough about the stuff I don't even have yet, on with what I actually have to show you.

I made a bunch of these cards for my Cousin as Thank Yous for gifts that she received for her beautiful little girl Sophie! What an adorable baby she is. I have some very cute photos of Tyler holding her, of course they are on my Brother's camera 3 hours away, duh!

I scored the PTI Dark Chocolate on my Scor-Pal to make the background. The flowers are from Simply Said. I inked the image with markers, stamped it and then colored in the flowers with a lighter pink. Added a little Spica glitter pen, of course that doesn't show up in the photo. Used the Tags Trio for the label and before I took the label out of the die I ran a white gel pen around the oval. Gave it a nice little detail I think. The "thank you" is from Short and Sweet. Some PTI Fresh Snow ribbon finished it off.

Hope you are having a great day. We are getting some very nasty snowy, rainy, icy stuff and it made the drive to town with the kids a little hairy this morning. I guess inland is getting it even worse. Do you think Mother Nature takes bribes? I really want some spring weather soon.
