A RAK and My Thank You

Morning All!

Hope you're weekend is going well. It's been very nice here, warm even. We got to play outside all afternoon with the kids yesterday and hopefully will be able to again today. Such a welcome change from what we've been having for weather these last few months. I'm very much looking forward to Spring! We also changed the clocks last night so now it'll still be light out at 7pm!

I recently received a beautiful RAK from my friend and fellow DT member Deb. She made me this gorgeous card and hidden inside was a fabulous surprise, a new Sugar Nellie stamp. How sweet is she! :)

This gift arrived last week on a day that wasn't going so well for me, and so it was a wonderful surprise! I love it Deb, thank you again! The papers and accents are fabulous and I love the little sentiment with the Whimsy Owl, so cute! Deb created a beautiful inside as well, but that had my personal message, so I didn't photograph it.

Well, new rubber always needs to be inked up so I wasted no time and created this card with my new Sugar Nellie. I found these papers at Target and already had Prima's to match. The image has been colored with Copics and highlighted with white gel pen accents.

The cardstock is all SU! and the colors are Wasabi, Pomegranate, and Tangerine. The layout is from the sketch on this week's Sketch Saturday challenge. I also added white gel pen to create some faux stitching. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps. The final accents are some hodgepodge hardware pieces. Deb, this one's for you, thank you so much! :)

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful Sunday! Happy Stamping! :)
