Fishy Thank You

My best friend and her husband were kind (and brave) enough to volunteer to babysit our daughters last Saturday night, so my hubby and I could enjoy a child free dinner. So I had to make them a thank you card. My best friend's hubby is a big time fisherman, so I had to make a fishy card...

Mother's Day 2011

I CASED this card from our stamp club last month. I changed the stamp and colors. I made 11 of these as Mother's Day cards for family and friends, and I made 10 of these for teacher appreciation week - at my daughter's school. The picture doesn't do the card justice. It was much prettier IRL.

STAMPS: Just Believe
INK: Pear Pizzazz
PAPER: VV, Pear Pizzazz, Concord Crush
OTHER: corner Rounder Punch, Swirls EF, pearls
