A Thank You Card

Hello Everyone! I took part in six challenges this week!

Totally Papercrafts - Spring
Penny's Paper Crafty - Anything Goes
Magical Crafts Fortnight Challenge - Something for the Girls
Cute Card Thursday - Touchy Feely
Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog - In Stitches
One Stitch At A Time Challenge - Thank You

Here is my card:




















I saw a Mothers' Day card in a magazine called 'Cardmaking and Papercraft' issue 57 (absolutely the best card making magazine ever!), and I decided to try it! But I made mine into a thank you card! My friend made a card for my sister's birthday with stitches on, and I thought it looked lovely, so I asked my mom to sew the stitches on for me!



















I hooked a pair of earrings in to the scalloped square. It is a cute little gift to have on a card!

















I made a little tag with 'Thank You' written on it.

I wanted to take part in Daring Cardmakers too, but my mom and I just couldn't figure out a flap with this layout, so we decided against it!

















My little sister Beth, also makes cards! This is the one she made this week!

Hope you are having a good week so far!

Blessings,
Kelly-Anne

Now what can I say Kelly Anne - I think you are our youngest challenger to date and if this is what you do now - you are going to be a really awesome cardmaker real soon...what am I on about - this is AWESOME!!!! I babble a bit hun so don't mind me. I love the earrings on the card, it has been one of my ideas to do but lack of earrings is the problem and I never seem to have enough time to make any either. Anyway enough of my ramblings sweetie. Thank you so much for joining us here at OSAAT. Hope you'll come back on Sunday to check out the winners and our new challenge.
