Thank You Watering Can

Hello and welcome. Today is a scheduled post to share a thank you card.

Now, on to the card for today:



- White background created with a Lil Inker Quilt Stitched Pattern die. You'll be seeing this one quite a lot, I expect. I love quilts and pounced on this die when I saw it.

- Die cut image is a die-namites Floral Watering Can (DN-1016) cut from white paper snippet and colored with copics. Debated on trying to add back in the little cut-a-way bits as I've been seeing done so beautifully on a lot of blogs. Decided this would take more fiddling than I had time for just at the moment, so settled for coloring. I quite like the effect of the coloring with the white background.

- Lil Inker Stitched Mats Circle die on a snippet of white pearlized paper. The addition of the pearl centers was a last minute idea, and I'm not certain I like this, but ...they were stuck down.

- Die cut sentiment from white snippet. Two layers for dimension, adhered together, and top layer colored with copics in the blue family.

- ribbon from stash.

Added some links for the dies used on this card. Some bloggers add pictures below the post showing supplies, and I don't know how to do that. So if I think of it when I'm posting, I'll try to remember to add links in case you're interested as to where I purchased supplies. I do try to find sales or coupons, and I'm always drawn to sites that have minimum order free shipping. Just FYI.

A simple card, but I hope it conveys my thanks in the way I meant. This is for a VIP who means a great deal to me.

Thanks for spending some of your day with me here and I hope your week is going well so far. Big Hugs & Blessings going out to you, and ya'll come again when you can set a spell!

Love your watering can card.

Thank you so much for your kind comments on my wordpress blog but it's not a new one, in fact, it's not one I continue to maintain, my main blog is the blogger blog, which I hope you will continue to visit.

Your coloring job on the snippet that is the watering can is FABULOUS! I thought maybe that was a purchased die cut, pre made and pre colored, but nope, it's all you! How wonderful!

So sweet and so pretty, Mary! That quilted embossing folder adds lovely texture and visual interest. Love the pearls and your coloring.
