Quick & Elegant (I think) Card Set

I needed a quick gift for a special person and this is what I came up with. The card base is my fave of the moment - Soft Suede stamped in Soft Suede using the Weathered background stamp. The images are from pcCrafters from a set called Classic Garden and I just love them. The insides are a combination of computer generated sentiments and gold embossed sentiments from Elegant Greetings, a retired classic from Stampin' Up! that I received as a prize from my wonderful upline Pat. I'm not sure how I'm going to box these up just yet, whether they'll get some fancy gold ribbon or a decorated "inbox" type of box, but hopefully the recipient will like them.


I'm a bit late getting this up today, my stomach is feeling the results of two weeks+ of severe stress over my yet to be fully recovered hard drive at work. Hopefully by next week I will have it back and everything will still be intact!

I'm working on my very first ATC swap on Splitcoast using Flourishes stamps. I'm really nervous and have gone through at least 4 different designs trying to find one that will be "up to snuff" with some of the ladies that are swapping. I'm also working on my current project for the Lime Light Design group and you'll be seeing my cards for that project very soon too!

Kaboodle Doodle will have a new challenge up on Monday too so hop on over and get in on this week's challenge before it's too late! While you're there, get to know our four wonderful new design team members. I think it's going to be a fun, exciting place to be!

Thanks for visiting!
