Thanks

Today we had a storm roll through, it lasted a total of 5 minutes from start to finish. In that time it managed to knock out our power. I was crafting when the winds started blowing and then....the power flickered off. I was able to finish my cards even though it was a bit dark in my room.
We left the house for a while, since it was extremely how in the house. We returned home around 8:30 and thankfully the power was back on.
So here are my cards I made. They were super simple but I kinda like the way they turned out.

I used my favorite, Kraft card base. I used Ruby Red and Old Olive ink from Stampin' UP! as well as some Versamark. First I stamped the Versamark on the card and then layered the Ruby Red and Old Olive. On a separate piece of Kraft cardstock I inked one more flower of each color. I cut out the flowers and popped them out with dimensional adhesive. The "thanks" is also from that stamp set. Oh I didn't mention the set is from Studio G and it was only like $2 from Michaels. The "thanks" was stamped with Creamy Brown Colorbox Chalk Ink. LOVE that stuff! I also adhered that with dimensionals. I rounded the corners. Oh and to add a little extra to the flowers I used some glitter chipboard Thickers from American Crafts (I used the "periods"). It is called Bliss in Coffee (color). That is my FAVORITE Thickers set.

I hope y'all have a wonderful week!!

Happy Crafting!!
