Dynamic Duos #82

Good afternoon fellow crafters! Happy Saturday! Any big plans for today? Have you all finished your Holiday shopping yet? Truth be told, I haven't even started! I know, I know, definitely need to get a move on it, there are only a couple of weeks left until the big day and it will be here faster than I want it to be!

The family and I are heading out later to our city's yearly downtown Tree Lighting, so I have been spending the morning just relaxing. I needed a couple of Thank You cards for some people at work, and I also wanted to put something together that wasn't too complicated and would be easy to re-create later on as a card set. Ruth over at Flower Sparkle created this same card design and I just love the simple design and look she created using Stampin' Up's Madison Avenue Stamp Set. I hadn't used this stamp set yet but was determined to give it a try. I am submitting this card set for this weeks Dynamic Duos Challenge #82. This is also my first Dynamic Duos Entry!

The colors for the challenge this week are Gumball Green and Primrose petals. I added some Kraft cardstock and a little bit of Crumb cake ink to match the Kraft, and some clear rhinestones for embellishment. The Thank You sentiment is from TPC Studio Card Crafting Thank You rubber cling stamps. I really needed to put this cards together today since I work tomorrow, and needed something easy since I don't have use of a die-cutting machine right now. I am happy to announce that my big shot has been shipped out as of yesterday and is expected to arrive by the 11th. Man, I cannot wait! In case you missed it, check out my previous posts to find out what happened to my poor Big shot :(

Thanks so much for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your weekend!
