Thank you

I have had some health issues this past month that I had to deal with and I had my wonderful family and friends that are helping me through this difficult time.  I had received some little gifts from a few of my girlfriends and I wanted them to know that I appreciate them so I made this card to send them.  I got my sketch layout idea from Retro Sketches.  I knew I wanted to use the dsp Etcetera since I had just gotten it in the mail.  That decided my color combo and ta-da, this is what I got.

Team Challenge - Sept

My share today is for our Team Meeting tonight.  Frenchie gave us some Coaster Board - pg 156 #129392 - to work with this past month.  At first I wasn't sure what to do with it and actually made a different card where I just stamped on it like paper but didn't think that was very creative so I came up with this card instead.  The Coaster Board is the embossed chevron piece.  I used my brayer and inked the Chevron folder and the put my Coaster board in it and ran it through the big shot.  It embosses very nice.  I decided to make a matching envelope using the new Envelope Punch Board - #133774.  Along with the envelope, I made an envelope liner as well.  Love it!!!
