Thank You Cards Using CTMH Ariana Paper and CTMH Wild About Love February SOTM

Hi fellow crafters!  I was having computer problems; but all is well now.  I have had really good luck before today with the Geek Squad fixing it online; but not today. The guy said he thought my hard drive was getting ready to crash.  What a bummer.  I spent the entire day backing up my files.  My gut said it wasn't the hard drive; so I called my son-in-law and he helped me over the phone to test the hard drive and fix everything.  It took 20 hrs. to test the hard drive because I forgot to turn off the screen saver.  LOL. 

I created 3 Thank You cards using the CTMH February SOTM Wild About Love.  I love this stamp set.  It has several fox to choose from and three sentiments.  It is available only in February for $5 with a $50 purchase; or $17.95 with no purchase.  I also used the new CTMH Ariana Paper Packet. The pictures didn't take very well.  The colors are much prettier than these pictures and the fox is not blurry.  LOL!

Card No. 1
There is a little bit of additional colors in the background

 Card No. 2
Stripes go up and down on the bottom portion.

Card No. 3
This one has a lot of extra color in the top portion.  It is darker on certain areas of the page.

Supplies used to create these cards:

Paper - CTMH Ariana (This is one double sided sheet; 4 more designs in this paper packet.)
Cardstock - CTMH Crystal Blue
Stamped Image - CTMH Wild About Love - February SOTM for only $5 with $50 purchase
Ribbon - Offray
Bling - Ki

  20. Oh poor you having those computer issues ......I had a similar issue a few years ago and my poor son ended up coming and sorting the problem himself .....poor man.

    Your Thank you cards are so pretty and I love your colour combination. It is always so lovely to see how small differences in layout of papers or depths of the same colours can make each card in a set so very individual.

    Thank you for sharing these lovely cards in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )
