VSN - Part 2

I was up crazy early this morning, so what does that mean??? STAMPING TIME!  I got to finish all of Friday's challenges, plus make a few more of one the thank you card.  I'm off to finish the set for my work colleagues, but thought I would share what I had thus far... enjoy!  This morning, I'm off to THREE craft fairs/holiday bazaars - OH WHAT FUN! 

This first card is for my friend, Kate, for her birthday on November 30.  For those of you who missed yesterday's post, my friend is having some serious health issues.  Kate's medical issues make mine look like the sniffles - she has been hospitalized for a good chunk of the past few months.  Some of you have asked for Kate's address to send a card - please email me @, and I'm happy to provide it to you.  Just so you know, Kate loves cats and coffee, and her favorite stamping color combo is pink and brown.  I used the Skipping Stones sketch for this week for this card for Kate.

The last card for this morning is a set of thank you cards for Christmas.  I always like to keep this simple but a little special, since they are handmade, of course.  The DSP is flocked, which looks WAY cooler in person, and the brad is a glimmer brad.  The edges are chalked with VersaMagic. Simple, and the set of 11 (prototype + set of 10 :) ) barely took me over the 45 minute time limit for VSN.

Copics: None
Paper: Close to Cocoa, Christmas Cocoa DSP
Accessories: Sleigh Bells ribbon, Glimmer Brad
