ABC Challenges - T is for Thank You

Good morning. Today I would like to share with you my DT card for ABC Challenges. Our theme this week is "T is for Thank You".

We are being sponsored by Whimsey Stamps , who are offering a $15 gift certificate to our lucky winner. 

I used one of Whimsey's images, called "Hang in There" and added a computer generated sentiment to tie in with the theme.

I coloured my image with Copic markers and added a little touch of stickles to the flowers. I won the Prima fabric flowers (and some Prima BLING!!) from Creative Scrappers Word Scramble game earlier this month.

My papers are all BG Archaic. I used an x-cut scallop punch for the borders. I didn't know that X-cut had really nice border punches and they are sooooooo inexpensive... less than €5 each!!! Check them out!! All of my papers have been inked with Brushed Cordoroy. 

Thanks for popping in, please do make sure to say hi...  and don't forget to hop over to my teamies' blogs to see their wonderful Thank You creations.

Now I have the unenviable task of sorting out my kids toy boxes before they get home from school and see what I'm getting rid of!! I've been putting if off for ages but it's reached crisis point now, lol. I really don't know what I'm going to do with the toys, I used to send them to an orphanage in Dublin but they stopped taking them, as did our local hospital. It's a shame because they toys are in perfect condition, my kids have just outgrown them. I guess I'll just have to land on my SIL's doorstep with toys for her kids, won't she be thrilled, haha!! 

Have a great Wednesday!

Sweet card, Sandie - I love that punch too (curse you!!!) - and the ribbon and papers of course.

I'm going through the kids' toys too - but I know where they're going - car boot sale!!!

Hello Sandie

Beautiful card. Love the image very sweet! Great DP's and I love the fabric bow!

haha - I'm sure your SiL will be thrilled, Means she can go through her own kiddies toys and pass on to someone elses kiddies what her's have grown out of. I do this, but Poppys toys end up in the in laws loft waiting for the other babies to come along.
