Expressing Gratitude

Hello there! I am posting this while watching my beloved American Idol. Simon seems a little nicer tonight... we will see, it is only half way through! Anyway, I made this clipboard some time ago for my friend Kate (hi Katie) and I asked her if I could borrow it tonight so I could post it. I really liked the way it came out and I thought I would make a little notecard to match. I actually did not use any of my very favorite Stampin' Up stamps tonight, but my other favorite place to shop for stamps, Impress Rubber Stamps. I love their simple, clean designs and I should own stock in this store too, because whenever we head up to Seattle area, I ask my husband to drop me off and I just walk aimlessly through the store getting tons of ideas and making their make and takes! Please check it out if you are ever up in that area. The paper on the clipboard is from Scenic Route and I just painted it with ivory craft paint and then added the paper and the embellishments, and some velvet ribbon. The top gets cut off but I tied on various colors of matching ribbon to the top of the clipboard. The card is SU chocolate chip, ivory, and chocolate chip and Cool Carribean ink. I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for taking a peek. Back to American Idol.. have a great rest of the evening! ~Nicole

Hi Nikki!! It is a beautiful clipboard and I miss it in my cube. I do like the little card you put with it.
