Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge #315 - Sunshine Sayings stamp set

I can't believe that I've finally got around to joining in on the Just Add Ink fun!! WHoo HOO!! It's only taken ALL YEAR but here it is, my first entry for the year with the wonderful, talented ladies at JAI!!
I have some new goodies I was hanging to ink up and play with and a card that needed to be made for a lovely lady here in the Village! You could call her the Mother of Poatina, she is sooo special! So for a special lady there needed to be a special card! I used washi tape for the framelit greeting, the new copper twine for some delicate detail, faux suede delightful Dijon cardstock, a panel of shimmer white cardstock which I watercoloured with the Dijon then stamped the watercolour image (also from the Sunshine sayings set) in Cherry cobbler! Oh and my fav at the moment, the Gold glitter pen on the flower to highlight some "petals!!"
 Hey I even stamped the inside too, added another framelit, this time the flower with the same copper washi tape and followed the greeting from "Love and Hugs... on one more year! Happy Birthday!" Wow this set has some super great sayings!!
The sketch was fun to work with, I've flipped it on the side and will certainly do this layout again!!
YAY, so there you have it! Thanks heaps for popping by and checking out my take on the challenge! Hopefully it won't be sooo long before I join in with the JAI gang again!

Gold Thank you!

There seems to always be an occasion on which we can say thank you! Thanks for doing the washing, ( a job I really like help with!) thanks for having the children, thanks for all the work you did, thanks for being there as a friend, THANKS! This card is for a wonderful guy who's spent countless hours in the village here in Poatina writing curriculum and getting some old school buildings ready for students next year!

I thought that GOLD would be a wonderful touch for this thank you card and with some old DSP it all co-ordinated fabulously!! Love Stampin. Up! for that!! I embossed the Thank you and added some rustic embellishments, water coloured the background and splattered some of the sparkly gold glitter brush for good measure! OH I even stamped the inside!!

Due to the size of the card I needed to make an envelope to match, YAY for the envelope board!! Card complete, ready for all to sign and share their thanks!!
Do you have a stash of thank you cards ready to give?? I think it would be a super idea to have a pack ready to go! What a kind way to show someone your appreciation with a homemade thank you card.
