thank you /so grateful {cards}

I have just barely resisted the urge to drive to every Big Lots in the Tri-State area looking for more Thickers-mostly because I now have  71 sets in my collection. That's a little bit excessive-no wonder the husband thinks I'm running a scrapbook store out of my craft room. LOL.

I wanted to share a couple of thank you cards today-in my Jillibean box, I had a lovely 6x6 pad of paper and I was determined to actually use it rather than hoard like I do most of my 6x6 pads.
I needed a thank you card for my sister in law (she's been picking my twins up from track every week this season-they wouldn't have been able to participate if she hadn't stepped up to help)-so I grabbed the Jillibean pad and got to work.
Materials- Jillibean paper & label, Recollections pearls, Stampin' Up rub-on and cardstock

Used the same sketch for both-love the look of pennants on my cards and layouts right now.

Materials- Jillibean paper, Recollections pearls, Stampin' Up rub-on and cardstock, Colorbox chalk ink

I inked the edges of the paper on this one with a light blue chalk ink-looks just a little bit more finished.

Happy Wednesday! I'll be back tomorrow with some home made pizza (on a layout, of course).


  1. Love the horizontal banners! Great little card design!

  2. Really great cards...I am sure that your SIL loved them. I love the little banners and wished I could get more excited about cards...I much prefer to straight scrapbook. Have a great day!

  3. Great cards - love banners! She will love these :) I just found out I have a Big Lots in the neighborhoo by accident! LOL! Hm...

  4. I love the cards! That is such a great sketch. Your sister in law is so nice to pick the boys up, I'm sure she will love the card!!

    I love the Jillibean Soup stuff too. I'm trying so hard not to hoard it!

    That is the second time someone's has mentioned pizza to me today. I think that is on the menu for dinner tomorrow now!!

  5. I love these, they turned out great!

  6. Very cute cards, love the banners! You are brave to even count your Thickers. I'm afraid to tally how many I have in my stash!

  7. So cute!
    Love the banners!!!
    I counted my Thickers for a thread at 2p's awhile back and was a little shocked at how many I have accumulated!

  8. I've looked for the thickers! Only found them at 1 of 4 stores, though. Cute banner cards - love a little Jillibean!
