This is my place to share with family and friends. You might find handmade cards, digital scrapbook pages, photos or a little chatter because those are the things I love. My blog is a work in progress, so be patient with me. Most of the time I think I will be talking to myself, but hey, I'm used to that!

A little thank you card...

for my mother-in-law. She gave me a lovely gift for my birthday that meant so much to me. I'm happy with it, but I have noticed that the majority of my cards have rectangles on them. I am going to have to get out of that rut, lol! I think all the cards I am working on now are that way too. After I finish this batch, I am going to make an effort to use some other shapes! Here's the card.

Supplies for this card from Stampin' Up!
A stamp from A Flower For All Seasons and sentiment from "The Mini Note Kit" from the last catalog. Basic Black ink. Tea Party DSP. So Saffron, Confetti White, Almost Amethyst and Whisper White card stock. I also used some Organza ribbon (scrap stash) and Copic markers

Hey, cute! And I am in a rectangle rut, too!!! It's just the quickest and simplest design, so I lean toward it, but you're right, we gotta change it up...LOL!
