Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop - 'Giving Thanks'

Welcome to my Blog, and to almost the middle of November! I don't know about you, but this year has flown by so fast! Time flies when you're having fun, right?
The 'Creation Station Design Team' have a 'Giving Thanks' Blog Hop theme for this month - welcome if you have hopped from Dena or from Kathy, and be sure to check out all the gorgeous creations by clicking the links at the bottom of my post.


  
We all say 'Thankyou' and appreciate someone or others at some stage, and as we don't celebrate 'Thanksgiving' in Australia, I have created 'Thank You' notecards for my husband Andrew, to give to his staff. 
Andrew is a Teaching Principal in a small government Primary (Elementary) school of 80 students in Kangaroo Valley NSW, and his teaching staff, office staff, librarian, cleaner and groundsman all contribute to the social and educational success of the students.


A perfect masculine card for the School Groundsman don't you think?
I did a little reconstruction of the sentiment on the banner (as per my customers wishes)I added a 'Soft Suede' banner atop the original stamped image. I then cut down the 'So, so much' and used 'Stampin' Dimensionals' for a little lift from the banner


Using beautiful 'Bermuda Bay' and adding my own embellishments; layering different ribbons & the cute little flowers & leaves from the 'Tree Builder Punch' to make a pretty card for the ladies.

The production line of creating; precut DSP & cardstock, stamped & die-cut images, ribbon rolls and DIY punched flower embellishments ready for making.

'Thankyou' so much for visiting my blog.

  1. For one who doesn't use enough DSP on her projects, I absolutely love how you've backed one of my favourite Thank you sentiments with a matting layer of DSP. Beautiful cards Denita xx
