A Reason For Thanks

Reason to Smile Thank You Card

I had lots of fun with some new goodies on this card and this color combo is very striking. I think my camera had trouble with the Island Indigo against the Summer Starfruit, but trust me - these two colors look fabulous together!

Lovely LIttle Labels Custom Thanks Tag

I paired the new Reason to Smile stamp set with the sweet Lovely Little Labels set. The Little Labels also have a coordinating punch pack, but for this card I created my own little tag. The In Color Dahlia Adornments (in Summer Starfruit) are right at home with this floral motif.

HIP TIP: Attach the Dahlia Adornments with Glue Dots - strong holding power with no mess!

I'm a big fan of the Patio Party Designer Series Paper (SO versatile!), but just look at that gorgeous patterned paper in Summer Starfruit - so pretty!

Today my reason for thanks goes to Stampin' Up! for this fun new stamp set, Reason to Smile. It's just $5 with any purchase of $50 or more (before tax & shipping). Get yours here before July 31, 2012.

Are you hiding under the bedcovers today in fear of Friday the 13th? I hope not - it could be your lucky day!! I'm going to go drum up some luck somewhere right now. ;)
