Thank You Very Much


My card today is the appetizer for Oldie Moldie Monday - come back tomorrow to see what other cards I made from this Basic Grey 6 x 6 pad.  Every Monday I try to show some love to some older paper - I have been doing it with my Basic Grey 6 x 6 pads - I collect them so therefore I must use them.

This is based on the sketch at Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps blog - I like this sketch.  I used my Silhouette to cut the banner.  I just trimmed the other end of the banner off.  The image is a free image by Paula - which can be found at this link.  Digitals are so great because you can size them so you have the size sentiment you need for each card.  I cut the circles with my spellbinders but you could size the circle to fit into your punches.  Thanks Paula for sharing this.  She has lots of other freebie digitals on her blog.

See you tomorrow for Oldie Moldie Monday.

Great card Barb! Your oldie moldie stuff deserves a better name it may be old but you always make terrific cards with it! The sentiment looks great at this size, I never once even considered making it a large focal point and always used it with other images. I'm gonna have to swipe the idea :)

Hi, Barb,

What a great card! Love the digital stamp and Basic Grey paper.

I'm relatively new to card making and just made my first purchase of Basic Grey -- it's actually the kraft that I used on the patriotic sample card -- and I really like it. I'm definitely planning on adding more Basic Grey to my stash.

Thanks for sharing and thanks for participating in this week's sketch.

What a great card. I love how you made the sentiment the focal point. I'll have to try that with this sketch. Thanks for sharing your wonderful talent.

Great card, Barb! I need to get onboard with the "oldie moldie" idea. I need to get rid of some of this paper to justify getting more!

This card is so pretty! It looks simple but I'm sure it took time to create. Thanks for sharing!
