Sweet RAK from Lisa & A birthday thank you

My good friend Lisa Henke sent me this card last weekend wishing me luck for my craft fair activities. Wasn't that sweet?! She's always so thoughtful to her stampin' sisters (not just to me by the way). Thanks Lisa- you made my day sending me some happy mail! I owe ya!

My DD and I designed this quickly the other day because she has LOTS of Birthday Thank You notes to write. After I cut out all the paper and she stamped many of the flowers to punch out I remembered the new stamp that was to arrive yesterday: the Simple Birthday Thanks giant cupcake with a thank you note included in the stamp. This is on sale right now for SU's birthday celebration so I had to order it. So we scrapped this idea and set the cardstock aside until the UPS guy showed up!

Well, we stamped a bunch of the cupcakes and worked together to color them in today while she's home sick. I'll show those tomorrow once they are mounted on the Gable Green bases I have ready. They won't be works of art since we had to do them so quickly, but I can see all kinds of possibilities with this giant cupcake stamp!

Also coming tomorrow, a few more Christmas card ideas. Thanks for stopping by! (BTW, did you notice my Stampin' Top 50 number going up above 400 recently?!? How fun! That's all thanks to YOU!)

Oops, almost forgot my Stampin' Supply List for my Thank You card above:

Stamps: So Many Scallops, Wow Flowers, Little Pieces

Ink: Pink Passion, Pumpkin Pie, Marigold Morning, Lovely Lilac

Cardstock: Whisper White, Gable Green

Accessories: Scallop punch, pop dot


  1. Yep, that Lisa is a sweetie! Cute flower card too, can't wait to see the cupcake ones!

  2. I love that flower card! the bright colors are so cheery! perfect for the thank-yous. Glad to make your day! that's what friends are for!
