Day 9: Saturday Snail Mail

Hello again friends.  WOW...2 posts in one day!  But hey, it's my birthday, and it's too COLD to go outside, so I'm spending my day doing what I love: stamping and blogging!  :0)  Today's challenge over at Papertrey Ink is to make a thank you card and send it to all the great people who work in the warehouse at PTI

I did make one slight goof on my card...I've been in birthday card mode trying to ramp up my stash, and instead of reaching for the "thank" stamp, I grabbed the "happy" and stamped it before I realized what I'd done...grrr!  So anyway, like any self respecting stamper, instead of finishing the sentiment with the "you" stamp, I completed the sentiment by using the "anniversary" stamp, since it is their 9th anniversary!  And I'll put the "thank you" on the inside!! :0)



I used Tropical Teal ink on an embossing folder (the raised side), and then spritzed it with water before smooshing my card stock into it.  Next I die cut a couple butterflies from Life Is Beautiful and inked up the white one by adding Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, & Tropical Teal to the stamp and then spritzing it with water before stamping.  I also WOS'd the colored parts, so it really shimmers IRL!  Adding the sentiment and a few iridescent sequins finished off this CAS card.

I'd like to take a moment and THANK everyone at Papertrey Ink for all the beautiful and fun products, the wonderful customer service, the Fabulous Design Team, and all the dedicated and wonderful workers in the warehouse who make sure I get my orders each month!  Thank you, thank you...you are all the best!!

You can play along too right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today again...I love it when you do!!  :0)
