Thank you card and Scrapbook page #2

I always have such a hard time making masculine cards! I needed a thank you card for my step dad-in-law and this one just kind of put itself together! The color combo was perfect for this guy card! Warm and caring, but not fru fru! My work area is piled high with scraps and bits and pieces of other creations! I just started placing and piecing until this card came to life! I have been using this blue/chocolate chip combo a lot lately. I really like it! : ) This is a simple card, but said exactly what I needed it to! I used one of the new single Stampin Up! stamps for the Thank You sentiment and punched it out with my scalloped square punch! (fits perfectly!) I pop dotted it up on top of a Top Note die, which I ran through my Cuttlebug and wrapped some chocolate chip ribbon around. The really cool part is that I actually mailed it! LOL I seem to be guilty of making cards and never mailing them! : )

The second photo is of my second scrapbook page! Now I know it is the 15th and it appears that I am a little behind! LOL I will be posting several pages at once soon! : ) This is my youngest daughter on her birthday! She wanted to pose this way for her birthday photo! It truly capures her spirit though! Very sweet and carefree! : )

Long day! I am heading to bed!

See you soon!

LOL about mailing your card!! I'm guilty of the same thing on occasion. I actually drove a card to my friend Marge's last night 'cause I was afraid the post office would kill it. (I caught her on the way to the hospital to see her mom. It was good to be able to give her a big old hug and let her know she was in my thoughts.)

Your page is fabulous! Puts a smile on my face to see such a happy young lady!
