Challenge: Thank You

Greetings all! Well you might have noticed a bit of a change here on A Passion for Papertrey, we're undergoing a re-vamp - hooray! But while we're in the process of that we're not going to be looking quite as pretty for a while so please bear with us :)

Before we get going on another challenge I wanted to share a picture with you of a special night out us APFP girls had recently. What better than cocktails with lovely friends!

Left to right: Aimes, Kate & Caryn
We met up in Manchester for a night of cocktails and giggles!

So onto an all-new challenge. If there's one type of card that I always run out of in my card stash it's Thank You cards, are you the same? If so here's your chance to replenish your stock because for this challenge we want you to create a Thank You card, or any other papercrafting project that says thanks!

Looking back through my Pinterest boards I came across a card by Maile Belles who had stamped a floral background with orange ink onto white cardstock, I was inspired to use the same idea and finished the card off with a simple sentiment and a bit of stitching.

Card Details:
Stamps: In Bloom/Think Big Favorites 2 (PTI)
Card: Stamper's Select White/Aqua Mist (PTI)
Ink: Orange Zest(PTI)/Memento Black
Other: Corner Chomper/Stitching Floss/Copic Markers

Over to Caryn:

I seem to have opted for a flowery little number too!  It definitely has a touch of Springtime even though we're very nearly into Autumn!!  I don't often venture into mixing so many colours on one card (they tend to be one or two at the most) but I love seeing other cards made with this combo so thought I'd give it a try.

Recipe {Thank You}
Stamps: Flower Fusion 11, Iconic Images, A Little Argyle.
Card: Stampers Select White, Hawaiian Shores, Berry Sorbet, Ripe Avocado.
Ink: Spring Moss, Hawaiian Shores, Raspberry Fizz, Berry Sorbet.
Other: Line/Canvas impression plate, mat stack 4 die.

Here's Aimes: 
I'm currently thinking I should have done all the work I said I'd do during the summer holidays! LOL! My body is in shock at the return to school after the summer holidays - I'll be back soon with a card though! :)

Here's my card girls!

Aimes, hope you've settled back into school well. I've found it SO hard to get back into the swing of things again. Won't be long before it's back to normal though! Have fun V xxx
