Simple Sunday

Happy Fathers Day to all the dads out there! Hope your kids are doing something extra special for you today...I'll be making a delish dinner tonight, Saltimbocca chicken breasts with sage wine sauce and creamy arugula pasta! YUM!

But, before that can happen I absolutely HAD to finish the thank you cards that I want to send to everyone who helped me ring in the big 5-0 b'day party. I had about 25 to make so I wanted to keep it simple but fun and funky so I used Tripletree Ketto with the just wanted to say sentiment. To keep those trees REALLY bold, I stamped them in black pigment ink and embossed with black detail embossing powder. Then I filled in the empty spots with my copics using the The Sunshine Crate paper to guide the color choices. Just a tip when using black embossing MUST use a static bag on your paper first, otherwise those little tiny bits of black powder will stick to everything you don't want them stuck on!

It looks like it might rain, so I'm off to get a bit more gardening done before I get busy in the kitchen.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Linda - a very cute card. I love the font of that sentiment - so I have one too! I actually use it quite a bit. Can't wait to see what you create next! Hope you had a great weekend.

Awesome cards! Great design, especially for making 25 of them. Those trees are indeed funky--love them!
