Thanks A Bunch!

Hello there!  I have made a thank you card for a family friend of ours who lives in the UK.  She sent me a card making magazine, and some card making goodies!  So I thought I should make her a card to say thank you!

This week, Friday Sketchers turned  two years old, and they had a blog hop!  So I decided to follow their layout, as well as take part in other challenges:

Friday Sketchers Challenge - layout

Totally Papercrafts - Stitching
Sisterhood of Scraps - Stitching
Cupcake Crafts Challenge - Buttons
One Stitch At A Time Challenge - Going Dotty
Polka Doodles - Summer Blossoms
Crafty Cardmakers - Distressed
Crafty Angles - One for the Girls
Lexi's Creations - Animals
Whoopsi Daisy Challenge - As you like it

And The Blogs For The Hop:


They are offering some awesome prizes, so go take a look, and join in the hop!

Here is the sketch by Jacque:

 And here is my card using that sketch:

I love the dotty paper!

I used three pink buttons on the top of my card, which I think looks really sweet!  My mom stitched the triangles together, which really gives the card a lovely look!

I love the little Elephant stamp!  I coloured it pink - because pink is my favourite colour!  It is holding a bunch of flowers, that is why I wrote 'Thanks A Bunch! on the label.

I had a wonderful time making this card!

I hope you had an awesome weekend!
