birthday thank yous

Yay! It is Thursday...that means we are under one week until our vacation. My goodness...I never thought it would get here and now I feel like I'm so far behind...go figure!

Anyway, I wanted to show you the thank you cards that I made. I must say...I love them. Do I say that a lot? Probably and that would be because I only post the stuff I really love. LOL!

These cards are made with items from three different companies. The card stock, thank you sentiment and ribbon are from PTI and the color is Dark Chocolate, the stamp is called Dream Tree and is from Unity Stamps, and finally the die is a 'Top Note' die that I cut with my Big Shot from Stampin' Up!. This is what I like about stamping....the ability to use several companies products to make something that, in my opinion, is really beautiful. I have to say that this card is not the card that I originally envisioned in my mind. I won't even go there with you but I will tell you that a simple mistake in the embossing powder that I picked up lead to the beautiful chocolate tree that you see here. You see...I was going to make that tree white...it probably would have looked just fine but I grabbed my clear embossing powder and after embossing the first tree I knew I had to leave it the way it was. I love mistakes that turn out that way!

Anyway, I hope this little card inspires you to make something very fun...with products from several company's products!

Have a super Thursday everyone and I'll see you tomorrow...woohoo it will be Friday!

So cute!!! I really like them too. I was admiring the tree and was looking for the name of it. When I saw it was unity, oh no. there are so many I want of theirs but just haven't gotten any of them yet. So many stamps so little time (and money) hehehe
