Many Thanks!

Hi! Happy Monday!

I find that I can’t have too many Thank You cards. So many nice people out there that deserves a heartfelt thanks now and again! So here is a sparkling card with soft grey and blue nuances using Many Thanks and Butterfly Set, both from The Rubber Cafe.

Man Thanks butterflies
I stamped the butterflies on patterned paper and cut out and mounted them on circle die cuts. They also got a nice coat of sparkling You’re So Fine Glitter – Diamond Clear Cool Highlight. I used some Scrap happy sheer glue thinned with some water to get a nice thin coat of glue for the glitter to stick. I went over the flowers too with the same procedure. Difficult to capture on photo…

Men hallå där – surfade runt med kaffekoppen i min hand och fastnade på din sida. Vad härligt att läsa om dina tankar och funderingar. Jag gillar skapandet, att få ro i själen och vila i handens arbete. Jag är helt övertygad om att det är nog något som alla bör ta vara på mer. Ju mer jag tänker på det just nu, desto viktigare känns det. Ja nu fick jag idé till en ny artikel i ämnet.

Vill du ha lite mer pepp så har jag Gratis HälsoBlad med massor med inspiration och motivation för att leva roligare. Du får tips och pepp en gång i veckan i 8 veckor.
Till årsskiftet planerar jag att nå ut med en gratis-app också.
Ta vara på dig.
