Merci Beaucoup



Just a quick post today. Wanted to share a card I made a few weeks ago for Verve's most recent release. The butterflies are from an older, but favorite set called Beautiful Kindness, and the sentiment is done with one of the thank you greetings from the new Thankful Hearts. I used lots of different patterns from Basic Grey's charming Nook & Pantry collection (the 6x6 size). The ribbon and buttons are by Papertrey, and the buttons are threaded with thin strips of cardstock, an idea I got from one of Susan's awesome Susie Q-Tips.

I also wanted to give a heads up that my blogging is about to become rather sporadic as we fly through this holiday season. I promised myself and my husband I'd take December off except for a few posts here and there, including Jen's Saturday SFYTT. I'm looking forward to spending extra time with friends and family and to completing some home projects that are long overdue - including a huge stamp room purge/reorg. (Watch for some Christmas candy soon!)

Thanks for visiting!

I think it would take me a week or longer to get all these DPs to work together LOL! Lovely card!

Good for you for taking a break! Kids grow up waaaay too quickly and Christmas is such a special time of year the more things you take out of your schedule the better you can focus on the wonders of the virgin birth. That baby grand may just be calling your name :D Blessings!
