{cardabilities challenge #21!}


A little bit of sunshine in a thank you card. :)

The sketch this week at cardabilities is versatile and fun. Check it out!!

I dug into the stash and found some pretty Basic Gray pp for this card. The yellow twill pocket was a RAK from my friend Kayla (thanks again, Kay!!). The chip pieces were painted w/TH crackle paint and then I added a tiny bit of doodlebug glitter to them. Letter stickers are Prima. I machine stitched the twill (& the sentiment) & added FP buttons tied w/baker's twine.


Now, just for fun. Some pics of my backyard.

LOL!! That Filbert. He is such a character. And, yes, that's me in my pink slippers & pink plaid robe. :)

Thanks to the cardabilities girls for some fab inspiration and thanks for coming by my blog!

Hope you're having a nice Sunday - and maybe even a nice long week-end. :)
hugs, patti

Oh, I love that your card looks like a bit of sunshine...especially that ladybug on the pp! Great stitching and chipboard flowers...I thought they were felt at first. I too could use some warmth...we have LOTS of snow here in SE Mass...but not quite as much as you. :-)

Thanks for the kind words on my blog!
