Thanks for Listening

Today I was able to enjoy a bit of me time! Both of my daughter's and my husband were away on play dates. With my new seasonal Starbucks drink in hand (Gingerbread latte) I had a nice afternoon shopping (for new paper) and purchasing my first Christmas gifts. I don't expect any further purchases until the end of the month. 
Now for my creation of the day. 

A thank you card created with the super cute image from Sassy Cheryl's Stamps called Have you Heard. I absolutely love these images by the talented Cheryl Alger. I own a number of her Sassy Cheryl images and stamps she has created for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.

For this card I used the new sketch at Deconstructing Jen. I really love to work with Jen's sketches. I made a few minor adjustments to my card to accommodate the longer card. I love making square cards, however my image was printed a bit large so I thought it looked better on a large card base. I am still learning to work in Photoshop.

The paper for this card is from Lilybee Designs "Destination atlas" and Studio Calico. I really love the navy blue with the aqua.

The image was coloured with Copic markers.

I decorated the inside with some remaining scraps. The sentiment is from Your Next Stamp called "Heartfelt sentiments" 

Sassy Cheryl: # 190 Let's Give Thanks
Deconstructing Jen: Sketch No. 125

Happy creating everyone!
