Pretty in Pink and White!

Good Evening!!!!

They say death and taxes are the only things you can count on in life,,,,,,,I disagree. If you're very lucky,,,,,you have friends.

Recently a couple of friends did some very nice things for me,,,,,,,,,,and so of course, thank you cards are called for.

Can I tell you I am totally in love with my new Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page set?  L-O-V-E!

On this one, I punched a 6 3/4 X 5 inch panel to use as my first layer,,,,,,,

I layered that with Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles that I had embossed with a My Favorite Things die.  Some framing and layering, some pearls and handmade flowers, a bow, and she's done!

Here's a close up! The Stamp is CTMH.

For this second thank you card, I fell in love with this stamp on EBAY, and my wonderful husband bought it for me,,,,,,,,,,without telling me :)  He's so sweet sometimes :)

I colored the image with copics, of course,,,and created a frame around a spellbinders M-bossabilities,,,,,,,a MFT Die-namics flourish, more hand made flowers and some bling,,,,,,a tim holtz button adorns another sweet pink bow!  I even used the corner punch to punch around a circle! Easy peasy!

Here's a close up of that gorgeous stamp!
