Winds of March

Three months of 2012 almost to the wind! Time seems to be fleeting! Do you feel that way?
I have two school music programs coming up in a couple of weeks, and I am sure that has something to do with it. But it's hard to believe that my baby daughter is almost through one year of college. And that this school year will be over in two months! 

I wanted to share this thank you card that I made with some luscious crinkled seam binding. I purchase my seam binding from various Etsy stores -- I would rather pay a little bit than dye it and crinkle it myself! I don't have time! :)

My image is called Script Thank You Circle from a wonderful set by Sparkle N Sprinkle called Thanks A Bunch (stamp set 415). It has so many great fonts and ways to say thank you in this set! It is also available individually.

Anything paired with black seems to become elegant! I probably use more black cardstock than any other color. My favorites? For card bases: Poptone Black Licorice (heavy weight that I love!). For layering and stamping: Stampin' Up Basic Black. I also have some "cardstock" from The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby) that is black, but the weight is very light (I wouldn't even call it cardstock, although they do) and I use it for multi-layered needs. I don't want my card weighing 2 pounds!

Have a marvelous day! It will go fast!

Stamps: Stamp Set 415 Thanks A Bunch by Sparkle N Sprinkle
Paper: Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery, Basic Gray, Basic Black (SU!), Sweet Tooth (Stamp School), Enchanted DP by Bo Bunny
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: slit punch, Spellbinders dies, twine, button, stick pins, Kaiser pearls, French Market crinkled seam binding
