Thanks - for all your support!

Hello, I have another card but first...

I wanted to say that I've been having problems with blogger (again), with comments/replying.  While I believe I'm getting all the comments, I'm not getting the e-mails when they post, which means I can't respond!  Please don't think me rude, I've put in a "help ticket" and hopefully they'll get it fixed soon -- I like responding and having personal contact with each of you!  

OK.  Onto the card!  I used a couple of challenges again, combining the sketch at CTS #369 and colors and patterns from TO #160 to come up with this Thank you card ~

First, I have to say that there's a friend who tends to like these colors so I KNEW I had to try!  While I couldn't get a good fluorish or brocade pattern to work well for the stripes, I think you'll still see the
inspiration easily enough.  I die cut and stacked the sentiment a few times, using a pp for the top layer, matching the base cs.  Here's a close-up (tho' I'd guess you've seen stacked die cuts before - lol) ~

Overall this was pretty QACAS in Darnell-ese!  I could even mass produce this in a few colors!  Hmmm...  Well I hope you like it and it brings a little sunshine to your day!  See you soon!


   PTI - Sketched Shapes, Thanks in All Ways
   PC - With Gratitude (one of the original dies that has the hard plate on one side and sponge protecting the outlines of the shapes, probably one of the first ones I bought eons ago - this one's almost antique, Ladies!)

Thanks, Well wishes, Good Health & Hugs,


  1. I'll take grey with ANY color at all... but what a gorgeous, jazzy way to interpret the stripes in our Sketch, TK! LOve a stacked word die - so happy to see you in our gallery again!
