Thank you card made using the Elegant Edges cartridge.

Hello, friends!

I hope you all are having a wonderful day! My day will be filled with crafting, so it should be a nice day. I need the relaxing outlet that crafting can sometimes give me today. Isn't this a great hobby! It is done indoors with temperature regulation surrounded by colorful crafting supplies. Why on earth would anyone golf ;-)

Today I have a card that I made using the versatile Elegant Edges cartridge and some creative stamping. I used to stamp more than I do now and I miss it. I want to start incorporating it more as I find it lots of fun!
The paper is My Mind's Eye and the ribbon is from Papertrey Ink.
I cut the circle frame out at 2 1/2" using the Elegant Edges cartridge. The stamps used are from My Creative Time and Papertrey Ink.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I look forward to seeing you all back here tomorrow!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

I love the fact that you used different colored inks on one stamped image. I've always been afraid that I'd mess it up. Maybe I'll give that a try now . . . after all, it's just paper, right?

Truly a beautiful card..U R so talented in stamping....I never used to stamp but because of all you and Joy do I have ended up with a huge collection of acrylic stamps so thanks for all you do and it broadens ones horizons..and to quote MS "and this is a good thing" (tee hee)

Kathleen said...

Love how beautifully "elegant" this card is, Melanie. And I agree about loving a hobby that is done indoors in a climate controlled environment surrounded by colorful goodies. To me golf is a lesson in frustration that includes sweating, sunburn and bug attacks!! YUK!!!!

I like the Thank you card it is cute. Thank you for sharing. And I agree with you about golfing who wants to chase a little white ball all over a green fill and special with this heat.
