BIG Thanks!

BIG Thanks!

Hey & Happy Weekend!

The Beans have made it through their first full week of afternoons at school nursery – yay! They both have settled in really well and I have had no tears or tantrums leaving them 🙂 With that I have been settling into my new routine and realising how quick the time goes whilst they are there!

Amongst the chaos of prepping for the October Release, Happy Stampers Festival, Stamp Magic paper craft show, a HUGE restock delivery and flurry of lovely orders (thank you), I managed to squeeze in a little time to stamp!

I required another thank you card and with the recent restocks, which included All Occasion Sentiments #6, I was inspired to dust off my set and ink it up. I still had my September Release stamps to hand and decided to pair the BIG thanks with Background Builders: Seeing Stars and the ‘You Rock’ sentiment from Simply Said Blocks.

Using the BIG thanks is perfect for me to join in on one of my many favourite card challenges this week, CASology. This week the cue card HERE is BIG!

Week 267 - Big

I used my favourite trio of colours to stamp the panel of stars and used a black strip of card slightly bigger to mat it with. The BIG thanks is stamped and simply flat coloured with Copic markers and a good layer of clear Wink of Stella applied.

I added foam adhesive to the thanks panel and also the ‘You Rock’ sentiment and added a few Stampin’ Up! star enamels to finish the design. Hopefully this card will reach it’s destination in a few days. It feels good to be finally sending out more of the cards I make 🙂

That’s all from me today, I hope to squeeze in some more creative time this weekend along with other exciting tasks like planning NEW Uniko Classes! I am super excited to have ‘found’ the perfect venue to hold them here in Stockton-On-Tees in the North East of the UK and I am now working on the finer details. So as soon as I have, I will be letting you all know!

Thanks for stopping by today. Hugs

    Fab card.
    It is amazing how fast the time goes before they are back! I’m amazed at how fast 7.30 am – 4 pm can go on the days mine catch the bus to/from school. Enjoy “your time” no matter what you do.

    You’ve added extra style and flair to the already wonderful big Thanks with the pretty background of stars, peeping around the edges. The addition of ‘you rock’ adds such impact! How wonderful that the beans are enjoying school and that you’re keeping busy in the ‘short’ hours they’re away. I can just imagine the chatter when you pick them up!
