Thank you!

Hi everyone and welcome back.

Over at the Inspired by Stamping Blog we are concentrating on 'Thank You' cards.  What I came up with doesn't have your 'normal' kind of theme.

I will be creating a set of cards to hand out to 5 special ladies next year. They are joining me on a 12 night cruise to the South Pacific and Fiji to celebrate my 40th birthday. It isn't a cheap holiday and I am overwhelmed and feel blessed that we are going on this trip. I'm going to make up little gift bags for them - perhaps some sunscreen, lip balm and stuff like that. We will be doing lots of swimming and snorkelling when we visit those amazing islands.

So, here is one card that I have made and gave it a holiday theme.

I have used the Summer Fun set for this one - how appropriate lol

I die cut a white circle and then adhered a textured paint swatch (from the hardware store) which was also die cut with a circle. Then I ran it through again to get a clean edge.

The thongs were stamped and fussy cut. The rubber tops were embossed with white powder.

The sentiment is from The Sky's the Limit set.

I was able to mask one side of the sentiment so I could stamp either side of my umbrella stand.

Quite quick and easy and a fun card to give to a wonderful friend.

Thank so much for popping by today xx
