PWC269 Thanks

Happy Wednesday!  Are you ready for the newest Paper Pretties challenge?  This week we're asking you to make a "Thank You" card.   

My card used the "Giving Thanks, Sophia".  Because of the big dress area this image is great for paper piecing which is my favorite technique.  If you don't already have this stamp now would be a good time to buy her, she's on sale and it's a good bargain.  

This is a big week in our house.  One of the kids and his fiance has moved here and another and her husband helped them drive down and now our house guests for the week.  It was a long, big move for them but they are almost settled in and any day now their kitty kat may settle in too.  So I've got to run to be the dutiful hostess.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "Giving Thanks, Sophia"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"; MFT "Blue Raspberry"
paper - Teresa Collins "Sweet Afternoon" (a gift from the Paper Pretties lady, thanks to Heather); Bazzill "Sunbeam" and MFT "Blue Raspberry"
miscellaneous - copics; MFT "Oval Stax" and "Chevron Stripes" die-namics; Stampin' Up "Oval" and "Scalloped Ovals" punches; baker's twine; dew drops

Here's the challenges:
Paper Pretties PWC269 - Thank You
Paper Playtime #15 - Pattern Paper
Crafty Cardmakers #97 - 1,2,3 1 image, 2 patterned paper, 3 embellishments (brads, twine and dew drops)

Sister Act #17 - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by, come back again.
