Last of the Thank You Cards

All the cards for my DD teachers are now done just in time for the last day of school!  It was fun, as I haven't had a chance to do a lot of crafting lately.  This one is for the trumpet teacher - her only male teacher so I had to back off on the bows and bling, though I couldn't resist using some ribbon I have had for years and never used.  I also got out some Thickers I was hoarding.  Why is it we all love Thickers so much that we seem too afraid to use them?  Thanks to Use it Tuesday for giving me the kick I needed to use it before I loose it :-)  Finally, I used a piece of cork left over from a recent project as well as some twine, brass brads, and embossed cardstock from Bazzil.  Stamp is from Close to My Heart.


Here's the sketch I used from from Card Patterns challenge:


  1. Perfect card and a great sentiment to thank the teacher! Glad you dug into your stash to play along with us at UIT!!

  2. Hey Lisa! Love this card! I mean really, really, really! I might have to stael this one. The colors and texture rock! This SO looks like a card I would make.
    Thanks for your comment. I'm so excited to be designing for Unique Crafters. I remember when they had their Try to see if Fran wants to meet you for the convention. I'm in the middle of the class reunion and having a blast! Hope to see you in Sept. for the Blogger Boot Camp.

    1. Thanks, Cissy! Isn't the cork cool? I don't now why I let it sit in my stash for so long - can;t have anything to do with the fact that I simply have too much stuff... no... couldn't be....

      I remember you mentioning the reunion - I'm sure you're having a blast!

  3. Beautiful Card!! Thanks for joining us at CardPatterns.
