Thank You So Very Much

Hi all!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

I needed a thank you note and with unpacking and organizing my crafty things I found a stamp set that I had not inked up yet from Walzing Mouse Stamps, so I challenged myself to ink it up and I used the colors from the Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combo challenge to work with.
I have not found all my inks, so I worked with what I could.  I did find Soft Suede so that was easy!
I used the Waltzing Mouse Vintage Labels 10 and the sentiment is from Mint Motif. As I unpack, something I am finding I have an abundance of, is ribbon! I can't help it! I love it, so I added some silky ribbon and a fun little button to my bow.  I distressed my edges with Soft Suede ink then following up with Vintage Tea Stain inks.

I am going to play along with Ribbon Carousel: Get Edgy (distressed edges), and  4 Crafty Chicks: Twine

I hope you have a wonderful weekend my friends!
Till next time!

Hi Tammy I love what you've done with these colors and stamps! Don't you love it when you find some stamps you forgot you had? Hope you can find the rest of your craft supplies! Moving isn't easy and I hope your settling well!

You made that color combination sing! I like your label-stamped background, and that shiny brown ribbon (you have lots of ribbon, you say??). And where did you find a blue doily? I've never seen that color before.
