A, B, C

I'm finally feeling that I'm getting back into the swing of things since getting back from the USA.  It's been an odd month. Leaving the kids in the USA took quite a toll on me (far more than I thought it would) and a health scare that had been hanging over my head for the last few months has not helped.

The kids are happy at college, although getting in contact with Michael is pretty hit and miss - I think it's a boy thing and I'm working on the basis that no news is good news. Jenny is another matter as we speak/see each other a couple of times a week.  I love technology. The health thing is sorted and I'm now recovering from what turned out to be very minor operation.

A couple of days ago I spotted a new Stampin' Up! YouTube video on the internet and it gave me an idea for this months Thank You cards.

One of the items that I had bought as part of my pre-order for the Annual Catalogue (way back in July) was the Little Letters Thinlits and the video features a number of ideas for their use. You can see for yourself by clicking on the link below.

OK, so I have to admit that I took the easier option (I did have quite a few of these to make), but watch this space for more cards using the thinlits.

Here are some of the cards that I made. If you purchased Stampin' Up! goodies from me over the last two months one of these are winging their way to you.

All of these cards feature the All Abloom Designer Series Paper Pack. I cut each sheet to 13.9 cm x 9.5 cm, to fit behind the Whisper White card stock (14.4 cm x 10.0 cm) but the longer piece that had been cut off was used inside the card to add a little more interest. I also added back in the centres of the letters ( the Os and As) as I thought that this type of card is a little more formal and needed them.You don't have to include them, as it's all a little fiddly because you will have to cut down the Dimensionals.

Details of the Stampin' Up! products used are as follows:
