Time to make those Thank-You cards

First of all I would like to wish everyone that stops by a Happy New Year and may 2012 be the best ever.
With the start of the new year comes the new challenges, today January 3rd is the start of a challenge at Clear it Out Tuesday to make a Thank-you card. You have two weeks to design and post your card.  I have made one of my favourite folds…..an easel card. I find them really easy to do and they look awesome. The stamp I used is from Layers of color, it is a cling stamp and it is made for the Spellbinder label 16 set of dies but it works just as well with the Label one as well. I coloured with pencil crayons and oms, stamped the thank-you from the cute & curly retired set from Stampin;up and punched it with the punch that goes with the set. The colours I used were Early Expresso and Pink Pirouette. the dp is from a DCW stack pack and the ribbon from Offray. I added the tiny butterfly and the pearls to finish it off.
                                Thank you card for January 3, 2012
Thanks for stopping by today and hope you will join us at Clear it out Tuesday. The next challenge will be January 15th so don’t forget to post your project for the challenge.
The virtue lies in the struggle, not in the prize.
