Thank You, Thank You

I've done enough knitting and crocheting in the past couple of days, I decided that today it would be time to play with some paper. I am part of an exchange coming up, and the theme is "thank you / congratulations", so I had to come up with something to fit one of those messages. At first I intended to make a masculine-hued congratulations card, but my idea just didn't pan out. So, it turned into a thank you card instead. I'm not even sure it's all that masculine, what with the flowers and all, but I think I like it anyway. I'm really diggin' the retro brown-blue-olive-mustard colour scheme though, I like how it doesn't really match, but it still works together. And the velvet ribbon is the perfect finishing touch.

I think I'm happy with the result. I may tinker with it a bit more for the final exchange version, but I'm at least pleased with my prototype!

Paper: SU Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, misc white, Deja Views Small Polka Dots.

Hah, my original idea didn't pan out either. I love the colours .. masculine, but not too masculine ... in fact it's rather it could go either way.

Thanks, hon. *hug*.

You know, even your screen-name here makes me smile...and you know that your friendship helps keep me going, too.

Thank you for being there, Samantha. One of these days I'll fly up there and hug you in person.

Love and hugs
