Thanks a Bunch

Hi friends! I've got a short post today. I have a card that I made for my daughter's teacher since this past week was all about appreciating all they do for our children. I saw so many cute posts of homemade gifts, some really clever ones too. I have no excuse, I plain forgot. Usually the school sends home a note or reminder the week before but not this time. Not unless Abby forgot to give me the note, which is most likely what happened. Anyhow, I managed to make a card and we gave her teacher some Scentsy bars. And here is the card...
I used Orange Fizz Card Stock from MFT Stamps for the card base. Then, Sweet Tooth Card Stock that I die cut using the MFT Die-Namics Blueprints 13. I have played around with watercolors with no luck. I know in time I will come up with some sort of great masterpiece, but I'm pretty impatient. So, when I saw this MFT Abstract Art Stamp Set I was really excited! This is probably the closest I'll get to watercoloring, for now anyway. This is the first card that I made using my MISTI stamping tool. It is awesome!!! I ordered mine from Simon Says Stamp but I believe it is available at MFT and My Sweet Petunia. (The price has gone up a little on SSS since I purchased mine.)  I used Memento Dew Drop Dye Ink from the "Gum Drop" set. I love the brightness of these inks! I used the MFT Die-Namics Many Thanks die, I received this die "free with $60 purchase" back in November, I love that about MFT!! I also cut the sentiment out of black fun foam to add some dimension. I plan on making a set of these to have on hand, ready to hand/mail out when needed. I have some other color combos in mind as well. Thanks a bunch for stopping by!
