Merci

Hello there!  I had a bit of time to squeeze in for crafting today, in between cleaning the house like a white tornado.  (I also had to take a quick nap, but we won't focus on that right now ;)

Felt like playing with my Technique Tuesday goodies for a change, and this is the thank you card that resulted:


The punched hearts are colored with a chalk ink.  They have a soft look and feel to them.


This set is Mon Ami Paris by Technique Tuesday.  The background is Houndstooth set by Market Street Stamps.  Oh!  The rose and pink patterned papers are by Maja Design, courtesy of my friend, Andrea.   I LOVE them, and wish they were more widely available in the U.S.  


I found a new-to-me site that helps you manage your challenges:  Feline Playful.  SO helpful.  They list challenges by day, and what the challenges for that particular week will be.  This is a boon to busy stampers!  From that site, I found out about these challenges......

Challenges entered:


What do you have planned for your Sunday?  I do believe I will be crafty in some way or another, which for me is a perfect day!

Wow! Thanks for the link! I may have to train myself to use it, but I usually get in a hurry and don't think about challenges. This does make it so much easier. I do love your card. So elegant and such a nice way to send a "thank you". The floral paper certainly is very pretty!
