Thank you for my Easter Eggs - Hopeful !

Whilst we're not always timely, I've always encouraged my children to send thank you cards when they receive gifts or treats and tomorrow I have no doubt they will have eggs to thank folk for.   I too have lovely folk within my team to thank and my wonderful loyal customers who are fans of Stampin' Up! and my classes and online Stampin' Up! shop.

This card came about with a left over piece of card that I'd used the excess ink on a stencil to smudge it through the holes onto a piece of whisper white card stock.  I then used a marker pen through the stencil to 'scribble' extra detail onto each smudged circle.

The layout is from the sketch at Mojo Monday this week and I've added an extra stripe because as you know faithful reader I love my sparkle so I've added a strip of the sale-a-bration glitter washi across the middle.  The base card is blackberry bliss which although not easy to see, is embossed with the large polka dot embossing folder. You could say I've gone dotty!

A fab sentiment from Suite Sayings a set all demonstrators at the annual conference back in November received free.  This particular sentiment also co-ordinates with the Botanical Blooms set and Botanicals for You the free Saleabration gift still available with just a £45 spend until the end of this month or free when you join my team this month.

I hope you have a happy Easter weekend and hope the weather is more favourable in the UK than forecasts predict.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. The art of thank you letters and cards seems t obe a dying art so I'm really pleased that your children are among the polite few! I'm sure they will have some Easter eggs this weekend!!! Lovely card and the stencilling is a great idea. Happy Easter. Hugs Christine xx

    1. I'm glad you agree it's a dying art. It needs to be reborn for sure Christine. Thanks for dropping in and Happy Easter to you too. Zx

  4. Hi Zoe

  5. Hi Zoe, fabulous thankyou card, lovely colours and design.
    I made sure my son sent thank you cards as a little boy, and I still do. Its a pity that it seems to have gone out of fashion, Kate x

  6. So bright and cheerful, love those colours together. I always encouraged my children to send thank you cards/letters but alas this polite tradition seems to be dying out nowadays - they are always lovely to receive.
    Happy Easter Day!

  7. I love the effect of the scribbled lines onto the inked spots. Spots and stripes are my favorite patterns, with a stencil and a pen you can make one in exactly the color you need. I need to use my stencils more, but I still have loads of DPs to use, so I don't feel the 'pressure' just yet. Not completely at ease using my stencils yet,,,

  8. Hi Zoe this one one gorgeous, colourful card a wonderful way to say thank you
