A little thank you

Afternoon everyone, as I expected I didn't get a chance to schedule a post for Saturday as I just really wasn't in the right frame of mind. Hubby and I took some much needed time together as a couple while little monkey had a sleep over at Nana's. I think we are both feeling more back to normal now that the date has passed and feeling very thankful for our friends and family. Which I think is probably why when I took some time out to create a couple of cards this morning I immediately reached for my thank you sentiments. 


Today's card was created using the latest sketch from the  Clean and Simple Colours and Sketches challenge blog. Here is the sketch...


....and here is the full view of my card.


I decided to use the birds from the Wetlands stamp set as the banner piece in the sketch and my sentiment for the circle. 


The panel of colour behind was created using the post it note technique, I'm not sure if there is a more technical term for this but that's what I was taught and I like it! An easy to remember name for such a simple little technique. You mask off the area using post it notes then using sponges just sponge any colours you like. Then when you peel away the post it notes you reveal a perfectly neat coloured in area. It's a good idea to using a bit of masking tape or snail on the back of your card to keep it in place on your work area 

That's it for today, thank you for stopping by to read my blog. I would love it if you could leave me a little comment to let me know you've stopped in.
