#imbringingthankyousback | Fancy Friday

Thank you.

I should be thanking you all for visiting every month and commenting on our Fancy Friday blog.

This card uses the Stampin' Up! Picture Perfect stamp set.  A stamp set that was in the Occasions Catalog.. something tells me you may see this stamp set again.

So, what's going on here? How did I make that luscious starfish? It's a two step stamp - I used crumb cake and delightful dijon inks.  On top I added a layer of Wink of Stella although you can't quite see it here.

Bam.  That little bit of sparkle makes my heart pitter patter.

As of things weren't exciting enough, I went completely crazy with the basic pearls.  I couldn't stop myself.  I just kept going and going.

So, who is the lucky recipient of this delight?  

In my real life... yes, yes... I have a real life job...  I run a family business.  We give anniversary gifts to our employees.  This is a card that is attached to a gift for an employee that has been with us for 15 years.  We can't truly explain to them how important each and every one of them are to us but we try.

So, thank you. Thank you so much for being part of our family business.

But don't stop here - keep hopping along - you'll see some incredible projects!

Are you on my Instagram? Are you on my Facebook? I've been busy lately - let me inspire you!!

Hop along to Marisa next! Check her out!

  3. Love you card, but I love the reason behind your card more! I retired from working at a company for 36 years in Nov of 2014, have yet to have heard from anyone there.
