A Prickley Pear Thank You

Today, I’m guest designing again over on the Prickley Pear blog and wanted to showcase one of their sentiment stamps because they really are some of my favorites!

Stamps:  Prickley Pear (Thank You Would Suffice)

Using a stencil, I sprayed the pattern on a panel of white cardstock using Heidi Swapp navy and green shimmer inks. I then stamped the sentiment and rounded two of the panel’s corners before popping it up on the card base with foam dots.  A very easily mass produced thank you card with a simple, yet beautifully elegant sentiment.  You can find more of Prickley Pear’s wonderful sentiments both in red rubber and as part of their clear stamp sets.

Another fun weekend is fast approaching and then DD’s birthday photo shoot is on my to do list for the new week ahead!  DH may have to help me out with this one because she is quite the wiggle worm these days!  Wish us luck!  It still amazes me how helpless a little one arrives into this world and how quickly they become independent!  Thankfully, she will actually stop a moment to snuggle a bit now and then!

Have a wonderful Thursday!

    That is a beautiful sentiment, and your background is gorgeous! I can't believe your DD is turning one — I remember when she was born and we were on vacation in California at the time! Enjoy every moment, as you know they do go by fast!
