Speedy the Cat Challenge #85

Hello weekend! I am SO glad you are here!!!
This week at the Speedy the Cat Challenge Blog, I loved having the challenge again. So have challenged us to create "Thank You" projects....we are busy making our Christmas cards and yet our stash of thank-you cards are going to be needed real soon ...
I strayed from the Christmas theme and created my card using MFP's "Black Eyed Susans for Encouragement"...was saving it for a "trash to treasure" challenge because I used a coffee cup holder from Starbucks. Turned it inside out to use the crimped side - an old friend taught me this trick (aka Jennie Harper) years and years and years ago...that's how old Jennie is..not ME (-*

cardstock is MFP's Aged Cranberry and stash designer paper. Image is stamped on Kraft and colored with Prisma pencils...lightly penciled edges while still in die and blended out...
added pearls with Viva's Black pearl pen, sentiment stamped with Memento Black.
Card opens from the bottom.

Hope you get to pop over and see the wonderful creations from the Design Team AND hope you are inspired to join in the challenge...remember - random winner wins a FREE STAMP SET!

looking forward to seeing your thank-you's
hugs,
