Hi folks have managed to have a play today, first time this week. I decided to make two Thank you cards with my box of goodies that I received last week. There was loads of stuff  lots of  little cute decoupage  and toppers. Backing papers in two sizes ,  printed shaped cards and envelopes, ribbons, ric rac, pearls, material, Sticky back fabric on a roll, and lots of sentiments.
For the first card  I stuck a piece of embossed card down and wrapped a ribbon around it, then added a paper ribbon sentiment trip on top. I cut one of the shaped cards in half and stuck that to the top of the card. Using one of the backing papers I cut a frame with a Marianne die,  added one of the little decoupage images in the center . I only used part of the decoupage . I added Thank you with the lovely cross stitch sticky back letters. Cut some flowers and added lace flower centers. The inside of the card was decorated with the left over piece of embossed card. On top of which I stuck the circle of pale blue backing paper which was from the center of my die cut frame. In to that I added the spare pink scalloped frame then offset onto this I stuck the spare image of Till Daydream on the couch with her little brother.
My next card was also covered with embossed card. To the left of my card I stuck some of the patchwork paper which I cut to shape. On top of that I cut put a little cross work sampler. Added one of the lovely paper ribbon borders. Out of the pink backing paper I cut  a square doily and used this to frame my topper, I also added a little sentiment then my flowers. To decorate the inside I have used the spare patchwork backing paper and a small image.
I am sending one card to Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine and the other to Do crafts to say Thank you for my lovely gift.
Hope your all having a good week, happy crafting. Love and hugs x ChrisB
