Thanks in Purple and Turquoise

     I've been making lots of Christmas cards this month (having finally gotten a rather late start compared to most years) and that made me think about needing a small stash of Thank You cards as well.  So this morning I've been busy making about a dozen of them because what I don't use myself, I donate to a couple of non-profit organizations who are always in need of Thank You cards to send to their donors and volunteers.

     I chose to share with you the brightest card I made today, since it utilizes a rather neon shade of turquoise for the sentiment and flower.  The card front was made using CS in my favorite color, purple.  I love that purple and turquoise combo; a definite favorite of mine!  :-D


     This is a really wonderfully simple design, showcasing only a die cut sentiment and a hand-colored, flower embellie from my stash.

     OK, I'm heading back to the craft room to work on a couple of progressive challenge cards which I want to get done this weekend.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Please continue to leave comments.  The "Word Verification" really isn't on.  BLOGGER INSISTS ON SHOWING THE "CAPTCHA" ICON BUT IF YOU IGNORE IT AND JUST PUBLISH YOUR COMMENT, IT WILL POST JUST FINE.  I WISH I COULD GET RID OF IT BUT THERE'S NO OPTION FOR THAT WHEN THE COMMENTS ARE WRITTEN IN A SEPARATE BOX.  SORRY.

Beautiful CAS card, NC! Those colors look wonderful together, and are some of my favs for winter schemes. I always scramble to make the thank you cards after Christmas -- good for you for being more organized! It's been a long time since I could visit around in blogland, and I see I've missed a lot, including the passing of your precious Cleo. I am so very sorry, friend! We lost our Luna in January, and it was so very hard. These babies just take up so much space in our hearts, don't they? Sending you big hugs!
