Monochromatic Thank You

HappyTuesday! I am back to thank you cards today and I used a technique from Jennifer McGuire for this card. This is easy ombre backgrounds.


I used Picked Raspberry Distress Ink to create the ombre background after I heat embossed Altenew's Beautiful Lady image several times on the card stock. The "thanks" is die cut from MFT's Thanks die and popped up with fun foam after making it ombre also. I trimmed the edges and mounted the panel to pink card stock.
I am entering these challenges:
I've almost caught up on everything I needed to price for Opportunity House so I hope to get a bit more crafting in this afternoon. I ran into a friend at the grocery store today and she asked about the twins. I forgot to post the pictures I took when they turned 9 months last week. So I'll leave you with my cuties on their 9 month "birthday."



Arthur sits up very well on his own and has gotten his first tooth. Valerie still needs a bit of assistance to sit up and hasn't gotten a tooth yet. They started swim lessons yesterday but they got rained out today. They also started Early Head Start so they'll get some extra help with some of their developmental delays. Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day.
