...and I'm back (with a card to share)

I only have a few projects to show off since I've been MIA, but I'll try to stagger them so as to not blow up anyone's subscription pages. LOL. First an update. We have been without a working home computer for a month and a half. Our LCD screen in the laptop went out, and my hubby has been having a hard time settling on just what model he wanted to replace it with. You all know I would have been out at the store, credit card in hand, the day after it broke! He finally took me to buy one today and I am sure I'll be getting very little sleep tonight because all I want is to play with it!!!

The first thing I want to share are the thank you cards I made for my family who attended my shower and showered me and the new baby-to-be with so many lovely things. The shower and striped paper came from Michael's, the pink and white cardstock I just had on hand and the stamp is from Joanns (it's a rubber stamp). I really wish I could find the original tutorial for making this kind of card, but basically it is as follows:

*Cut the base cardstock (shown pink here) to 4.25" x 8". Score at 3" down the long side.

*Decorate it according to your design (I added coordinating shower paper just a hair smaller than the base.

*Cut another base (mine is also pink) to 7" x 3". Score the 7" length in half (so at 3.5")

*Decorate as you wish (I added a white paper and stamped a sentiment in pink).

*Adhere the small card (so that it opens towards the larger base's flap) to the inside of the base card.

Thanks for looking.
