The Ink is Black, the Page is White!

Good Tuesday morning!  You should have here over the last few days . . . I was finally getting my Spellbinders Nesties organized and sorting all the Prism paper that I received in Texas.  I can walk in the studio now and not have to walk over a box.  Such a nice feeling!  I’ll get pictures later of how I organized my Spellbinders.  I based my system on what Shelly posted here.

On another note, and the reason for today’s card, is that my mother, aunt and sister all went through my piles of cards on Easter Sunday.  I had so many that I needed to make some space and they hadn’t gone through my cards in a long time.  I brought them all up the dining room table and let them all a free-for-all.  Once they were done, I took what was left, sorted them into categories and put them in zip lock baggies.  Much to my surprise I had tons of Christmas cards that I could have sent out last year . . . duh!  However, I had very few thank you cards.  So . . . . last night I decided to make a thank you card that could be used for a more subdued occasion.

Of course, I had to add my own quirky twist, even though it’s a pretty simple card!

ThinkOfYou ThankYou April09

The background panel was debossed with the Spellbinders Paisley Impressabilities and the image and borders were cut and embossed with Spellbinders Label Three Nestabilities.  On the inside

I simply stamped Thank You.  However this could easily be a sympathy and/or thinking of you card.  My quirky touch . . . the button truly does not go with this design, a bow would have been better, but I wanted something a little different.
