Thank you.

Hello my friends, I hope you are having a great day! Here in this part of WA state the weather is crazy!! WE are having very cold, windy and rainy days. I am really looking forward to those really nice bright and warm Springy days, oh well, I should keep praying for that.

I have a Thank you card for you today. I used the sketch from "Everything but the Kitchen Sink" I love this!! Isn't this tittle amazing? I wish I could spend less time in the kitchen and more time crafting, LOL.

Anyway, here is my take on the sketch. I went into a very Vintage look. I used scraps of PP I had in the plastic container (I am a keeper of pretty paper, even if they are small pieces) ans sponged all the borders, then distressed them. After that I put all the pieces on a White piece of CS and added some stitches. After that, I distressed them a little bit more. I stamped the sentiment in Espresso Ink and matted this piece in a piece of Ocean Mist CS. After that I adhered to my card (Chocolate Brown).
I made a paper flower and a bow in Light Blue Color.

Card recipe:
Card Stock: Chocolate Brown, Ocean Mist (Gina K), White (GP).
Paper: Ancestry.com Collection (K&Company)
Stamps: Inside & Out (Gina K. Designs)
Ink: Espresso Adirondack (Ranger), Tea Dye Distress (Ranger).
Embellishments: Light Blue Satin Ribbon (Offray),  Silver brad (Jo Ann's).
Accessories: Sewing machine, Mini glue dots, Scallop Punch (Fiskars), daubers.

Hope you like it.
Have a great day.
