Thanking You.



This is more than likely my last card for the Summer Card Camp which is rounding up its last week. I haven't made as many cards as I had originally hoped during the 4 weeks it was run, but what's the saying...something about best laid plans?  Yes, that's the one. I just thought it would be a nice opportunity to say thank you to all who ran and who participated in the class generously sharing your magnificent creations and inspirations which must have totalled well into the tens of hundreds at the very least.  Pretty amazing, huh?  So a big heartfelt thanks complete with squeezy hug to all of you crafty mavens that took part.

My Thank You card is fashioned on Card Camp's Week Four color combination which again was a whopper, but still a plesantly cool, mermaid-y, yet collosal combo that I rather enjoyed.  Not sure I'll be broadening my deal permanently by always attempting such a large number of colors at a go as a matter of course, after having done so these last four weeks though, but I have made sure my Card Camp swan song towed the line this last time.  *wink*



The Thank You sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamp's Join Us set.  Love a good stamp set just perfect for allowing us to be fine upholders of convention and this is, indeed, a good one.  The leaves were stamped with a large-ish rectangular 4x6 background stamp called Notary from Prima Marketing.  It was a devil of a stamp to get off the acetate, but well worth it in the end.   As I am certain that the rest of the other bits and bobs used on my card are identifiable to all you clever bees, I won't really list them as I am most certain I've rambled on long enough.

So a big thank you also, for stopping by my blog.  It is such a pleasure when you do.  I'll see you anon.

So pretty, Jen. Love the shaped card behind your focal images and the text style stamping on the various pieces. I just got the TANL dies in my last order -- but haven't used them yet. Must try them out!!

I love this card! Great use of the weeks color combo. I can't believe it's already week 4! I still have yet to come up with something for this week, even though I love the colors!

Well done! Love that shaped card and your striking leaves. Just not feeling that excited by this week's colour combo, so thanks for the inspiration :)

that is SUCH a beautiful card! The color combo is very mermaid-y - I like that! And I've really enjoyed seeing what our "classmates" have been creating - I'm sad it's almost over!!

Ooh, just look at those dreamy blues and creamy whites! Love that the card is shaped, and I'm dying over the TANL leaves cut out of completely non-traditional paper--awesome, Jen!
