Thanks a bunch~

I'll have more CHA photos for you tomorrow; I'm trying to pick and choose the good ones out of my camera and I'll edit them down and post more once I weed through them. Tonite I've been working on thank-you cards. I had to use the new Crafty Secrets "Sweet Kids" set because I love how soft and pretty the images are, and they are so fun to color in.




The swirls from Crafty's new "Flourishes" set are awesome. I've been stamping them in black and then coloring in the leaves and flowers to match the patterned papers I'm using. I just bought a Making Memories "Chelsea's Place" paper pack today with my 50 percent off coupon @ Michael's.... I love that the patterns in this pack aren't so busy. It's easy to stamp a swirl on there and the swirl pops right off the paper. I finally went and bought the "Skin White" Copic Marker tonight...WHY did I wait so long to grab this color! It is the PERFECT marker color for skin tones! I've been using my "flesh" colored marker to color in the sweet kid's cheeks, to make them rosy and flushed.

These are beautiful! I love how you stamped and colored the flourishes on the designer paper. Once again, the way you lay out stamps, paper and ribbon is really superb.
