SIP Challenge 180 – Thank You!

Happy New Year!! I had a busy month in December and didn’t have any time to craft which was not a good thing! I did manage to get a little crafty time in yesterday with Andrea on FaceTime, we haven’t done that in a while! One of the big things that happened to me was on Christmas Day. I was on my way to see a friend and hit a pothole on the Southern State Parkway. It broke the spring and some other important parts in the front of the car which in turn sliced the tire off of the rim. $1,700 later the car was fixed. That’s a lot of damage from a pothole! Merry Christmas to me, not! Other than that I had a good month and I have missed you guys! I plan to attempt to get back to being a little more crafty in the new year!

To start off the year we have a new challenge over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper Blog. We took a little time off and to start we are making thank you cards!

I used a whole bunch of dies and no stamps to make my card! The greenery uses dies from the Concord & 9th Season Of Cheer, Just Because and Beautiful Branches Sets and they are cut from Early Espresso, Soft Sky, Garden Green, Pear Pizzaz and Old Olive. My rectangle is cut from a piece of Desert Storm 80lb with the die from the Concord & 9th Just Because Dies. I cut the season from Silver Glitter Card and the of thanks from a piece of Dark Grey 110lb, both of those dies are from the Concord & 9th Season of Cheer Set. The greenery is added to a panel of Light Grey 110lb with Glue Tube. I adhered the season and of thanks to the rectangle and then added it to the panel with 3M Foam Tape. The panel is then adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I love all of the greenery behind the sentiment and the way it stands out against the grey background! I hope that you like my Design Team Card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge! Stop by the BLOG and see what the rest of the Team has come up with and share your card with us in the gallery! Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope that your year is off to a great start! 🙂

  1. Long time no speak Justin! Lots of things have changed. Great card today and I’m sure you have absolutely picked the right challenge for right after the holidays. Sorry to hear about you car. I’m hoping 2019 will be better in all respects then 2018 was. Hugs, Grace

    1. Hi Grace!
      Yes, it has been a very long time! I hope that you had a very nice Holiday and that you and the family are good! Glad that you like the card. I have been finding it hard to get my Mojo going lately. The car was a bummer but that’s life! I hope that 2019 will be a great year for us all! Miss you! XO

  2. Well you certainly didn’t lose your creativity over your break! This card is breathtaking. I’ve missed your cards and can’t wait to see what you have in store for the new year.
    Happy New Year!

    1. Thank you very much Sharon! I kept thinking that I wanted to make a card with just some leaf dies! Happy New Year to you too!
