Hi everyone, Shawnee here with a fun and easy Thank you card for you all. With Christmas come and gone, we all have those thank you notes to write to our friends and family to thank them for the gifts from the holiday season.
I have a thank you card today that you can easily mass produce but still write a cute note inside and make your friends and family smile when they receive it.
If you head over to the Silhouette Store you will find a cute card by Lori Whitlock it is design id 36612.
I used cute green paper for this card as it was made after Christmas time and made for some very special people who made my family's Christmas incredibly memorable. 

I hope you have enjoyed this cute and easy Thank you card and are inspired to say thank you to those people in your life who are a blessing to you. 

Have a great Friday!

Thanks Sew Much

Hi everyone!

I'm Christina from the Crafty Card Gallery Design Team, here to share with all of you a card I created for this months challenge.
Here's my card. Notice the stitching around it, it's faux stitching and I used pattern paper for the quilt. It's easy to do when you don't have a sewing machine.

handmade paper crafted card

The saying I chose "Thanks Sew Much" adds a nice touch to the card with a little bit of "Pun"

Notice the spool, I added fabric twine and stuck a sewing pin through it. It's a unique way to embellish a stamp.

Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!

Just a Note of Thanks!

Hi everyone! It's me, Tonya and I'm here to share a quick card I created. For this month's challenge we had to come up with a thank you card.
I started with a folded 3"x6" piece of cardstock as my base and cut a piece of typewriter cardstock slightly smaller than the base of the card.

I  dug through my mass collection of scraps and then cut various sizes of cardstock which I adhered to the bottom half of the card. The vintage typewriter is a digital image I found online and can't remember where I found it. Just do a google/bing search for vintage typewriters and there's a ton of images out there. 

I printed and then fussy cut the the typewriter out, used a little chalk ink to give it an old look. I also cut a slit in the typewriter so I cut add the "Just a note of thanks!"(printed off the computer) in and make it look like it was actually typed out. I finished off the card with two little hand cut banners, button, sequin and a dew drop. 
The hardest thing about this card is the fussy cutting. :-) If you have any questions please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Sunday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

CHA Day 1

So you're getting my second attempt at my CHA day 1 post since the blogger app on my ipad decided to delete the first one (ARGH!)

So we went to CHA (Craft & Hobby Association) trade show yesterday, our first day there but the 2nd day of the show.  If you don't know what CHA is it's like every craft store you've ever seen times a million... Sadly you can't buy anything but there are booths for everything - crafts you've never even heard of before...  So we started on the far right and made it through about 1/3 of the show floor yesterday.

So here's what we noticed in terms of trends:
-Gold - we saw lots of gold EVERYWHERE... very trendy - glitter, gold accents, embellishments, foiling
-pastels - a lot of pastel usage, we didn't see much "Marsala - color of the year"
-home decor - everyone is showing paper crafting & painting supplies being used for home decor - wreaths, giant clipboards with art on them, pictures with embellishments on them
-paper flowers - we saw a lot of paper flowers - big ones, small ones, kits for you to make your own
-die cuts continue to be the trend (lots of dies to go with stamps
-mixed media continues to be big too - saw a lot of paint/letters/stickers/canvas mashups that looked fabulous
-project life - "easy" scrapbooking kits are very popular

we also took a copic coloring class with Sandy Allnock - I actually colored well!!!!!

So since we're getting ready to head out, I'll leave you with a few pictures....

Be sure to follow along with all of the CHA fun on my facebook page -

or follow me on instagram - I'll be posting all day - craftycardgallery

if you have specifics you'd like to see be sure to leave me a comment....

Snowman Fun

Hi Crafty Card followers! Thia here, from Blue Moon Creation Crafting Station, with my post for this month. I decided to get a bit creative, instead of doing a penguin card, I did a snowman card but added a penguin aspect. My card is black and white. It's also a shaker card...look closely at the above photo. See the clear sequins? Fun! I love shakers and I've been playing around with how I create mine. With this one, I stamped my base card front. I placed sequins into a bag and secured it between the card base front and my sheet with the cut out. Added snow (Lawn Fawn Die for grass which also makes great snowy hills! Added embossed dots for texture.) Added snowflake, sequins, and a bow to front. Fun card to say Snowmany Thanks on! Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Snow Y'all?? ~ Sue B

Greetings all and thanks for stopping by today!

Today I get to share my creation for Crafty Card Gallery's theme for this month. I picked snow. There is nothing more peaceful than a fresh snowfall (with big flakes) in the woods. I am lucky have woods butting up against our back fence and I love seeing the snow fall in the quiet. So today my card reflects that happy feeling. Here is my card:

The "snow" on the ground is heat embossed and the big snowflakes are from Stampin' Up. I love how this card turned out. The sponged background makes it look like the sky. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will show some bloggie love. Until next time....
