You're Welcome??

Welcome!  Who would I send this to?  Someone new in my life?  A family of a new baby?  Thought about putting "home" below "welcome" but to be honest, I don't know of anyone away who will be returning soon.  Then I thought I could add "you're" above welcome but that's just silly.  Who sends a "You're welcome" card.  LOL! 

Either way, I'm sure someone will find this in their mailbox someday.  I certainly enjoyed making it.  I was insppired by a card on page 20 in the current Occasions mini catalog.  I changed up the colors and the stamps but kept the layout pretty much identical.  Couldn't resist adding that embossed background to my card.  But what drew me to the layout in the place were those tiny little pearl-clad flowers floating off the top and bottom edges of the main image.  

As promised, here is a picture of the Valentine my daughter passed out to her classmates last Friday.  We made 26 of them and this one was left over.  I meant to photo all 26 as they are much more impressive that way... but I missed the opportunity so this is what you get.  The skinny sleeves are from SU- 50 in a pack.  We've done a number of projects with these and will have 5 or so left over!  I just photographed her Valentine box that we had fun with so I'll try to post that tomorrow. 

Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. Maybe you could start a new trend in cards. The You're Welcome card. It would theoretically help your stamping business and USPS....HAha!

  2. Gorgeous! Yours is much prettier than the one in the catalog! Love the embossed background.

  3. Maybe for someone marrying in to the family -- might use it in a decade or 2, judging by the picture of your kids!! :)

  6. what a gorgeous card! I love the colors and the coloring of the stamped image is so prefect!

  7. Love the colors and this great layout.

  8. beautiful! looove that branch and all the gorgeous embossing detail.

  9. I love the little flower embellishments and the way you did the bow...just perfect! My thought on this "welcome" sentiment would be to give it to someone who moved into the neighborhood or even to send to a friend who bought a new house.
