HI BLOGGIES:  I have been having such a wonderful time making a card every single day this month.  I look forward to going into my craft room in the morning to see what I can create each day.

I am working on my Open House that I am holding next week to distribute the new catalogs to my customers and to thank them for their support and friendship this past year.

 This idea comes from Stampin' Up! artistic department.  I LOVE how simple it is but how much POW it has.  The middle part of everything is darkest and then the other 3 are lightly stamped.  Monochromatic is very appealing don't you think?

Here are my first stack of thank you cards.  I used retiring Baja Breeze ink, card stock and ribbon.

It is hard to see but the darkest butterfly has one mini pearl on it's body.  Just a little bling to catch your attention.

I just couldn't get the color right with my flash without my flash, etc.  It was too bright with the flash and too dark without it.

Stamp set:  Oh Hello!
Other:  1/8" ribbon, pearls, petite butterfly punch
Card stock and ink:  Baja Breeze Whisper White

Thanks for visiting.  I would love to hear your comments.
