Just a Note of Thanks!

Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and I’m here to share a quick card I created. For this month’s challenge we had to come up with a thank you card.
I started with a folded 3″x6″ piece of cardstock as my base and cut a piece of typewriter cardstock slightly smaller than the base of the card.

I  dug through my mass collection of scraps and then cut various sizes of cardstock which I adhered to the bottom half of the card. The vintage typewriter is a digital image I found online and can’t remember where I found it. Just do a google/bing search for vintage typewriters and there’s a ton of images out there. 

I printed and then fussy cut the the typewriter out, used a little chalk ink to give it an old look. I also cut a slit in the typewriter so I cut add the “Just a note of thanks!”(printed off the computer) in and make it look like it was actually typed out. I finished off the card with two little hand cut banners, button, sequin and a dew drop. 
The hardest thing about this card is the fussy cutting. 🙂 If you have any questions please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Sunday is wonderful and enjoy creating!


Wow!

All I can say is WOW!  I have to be 100% honest here.  When I decided I wanted to build the crafty card gallery app, I had no idea of whether anyone else would even be interested.  I really did it because I thought it would be fun to do and that was all I was aiming for.  The app has been out since October 13th (so a little over 1 month), and it’s in 11 countries!  I never imagined it would spread that far (ok, I’ll admit I didn’t really think about it being in other countries).  I started this blog for the app, and participated in my first blog hop a few weeks ago.  I had so much fun, I decided to coordinate a blog hop this weekend.  There are already 26 blogs that have signed up!  I’ve participated in a card drive (Vera) and sent a bunch of card to Operation Write Home, which has been fun.  I’ve been invited to a join a card making group on Facebook and created a Yahoo group to discuss ideas with some of you.

I just have to say Thanks to all of you!  I have had so much fun this last month working on the app; talking to so many of you (all online!), thinking up ideas on how we can work together, and seeing the great crafts & cards you’ve created!  I have definitely been inspired by all of your great work! I am amazed at how many talented people there are out there.  I have learned a lot from seeing what all of you do on your cards.

I’m just now working on the 2nd update to the app and there’s a lot to do!  But I just wanted to thank you all for the inspiration.  I hope the app and this blog provide you 1/10th the inspiration I’ve gotten from all of you!
