Delighted!

I made this card for 3 challenges! The first is the Doubledog Dare Challenge where I am this week's hostess. My challenge is to make a Thank You card since we'll all be needing some of those pretty soon won't we now!

I used the MojoMonday sketch #116 on my card as well as the colors for the Split Coast color challenge. Betty was the hostess this week and she asked me to help her by making a sample card to post with her challenge - whoo hoo!! The colors for us to use are yellow, eggplant and artichoke - a nice combination don't you think?

My sentiment is from the Waltzingmouse set Blessed by You - isn't it a great way to let the giver know that you liked their gift!?!?!
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps - Blessed By You
Paper: Always Artichoke, Barely Banana, Elegant Eggplant - SU, DP - Basic Grey Wisteria/Violet
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Lemon Tart Ribbon - PTI, Circle & Pinking Circle Nestabilities, Nested Birds Shapeabilities, Swiss Dots & Diamonds in the Rough Cuttlebug folders, cuttlebug, dew drops, glue dots, foam dimensionals.

Dear Julia

occasionally I landed on your blog and didn't want to go without writing you a word. I very like the artwork you do and am sure to take a look again from time to time.

By the way, right now I have a Christmas Candy to give away, if you like try your luck; http://creawitch.blogspot.com/2009/11/weihnachts-candy.html

Love from Karina
