Word Art Week ~ Congrats

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

For the last couple weeks I've kept my thank you card for Friday, but this week I thought I'd change it up a bit and post that card yesterday. The post title is a BIT of a giveaway of today's theme LOL. Yep, Congrats. What for? For making it to Friday for one thing and if you're celebrating anything else, well, congrats for that too!

Today's card is another quick and easy CAS creation using the Simply Wonderful stamp set and Best Year Ever DSP from Stampin' Up! Both are available FREE during Sale-A-Bration when you spend £45 or more (buying the other elements for the card will get you one free item).

Card: Whisper White (folded base and a snippet for stamping) and Best Year Ever DSP
Ink: Baked Brown Sugar
Stamp set: Simply Wonderful
Tools: Labels Collection framelits, Corner Punch, Snail adhesive and Stampin' Dimensionals

Cut and fold Whisper White card to create the base. Punch diagonally opposite corners.
Cut piece of Best Year Ever DSP (I cut mine ¼" smaller than the base). Round the corners and attach to base card with Snail.
Stamp the sentiment in Baked Brown Sugar ink onto Whisper White and cut with the smallest Labels Collection framelits die. Pop up onto base card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Now it's that time of the week when I ask if you can choose a favorite from this week's cards. I think I have a favorite, but here's a recap. Click on the pic to be taken to the post...

Hmmm, maybe I don't really have a single favorite! I have great friends who ARE the best. I spent some time with one of those friends on Monday, who made my day. Wednesday's card was created to mark a  very special day and milestone. I love the colors and simplicity of Thursday's and I'm so thankful for all of you. Today's could be to congratulate me on the milestone from Wednesday. Can YOU choose a favorite?

All the products I've used to create today's card are available 24/7 in my Online Shop. Click the images below to be taken straight to them.
