Gypsy Made Simple - Thank You Card

Good morning Sheila here from She's A Sassy Lady. I have a wonderful card to share with you today and it is so easy you will love it! Thanks Pam for allowing me to share a Gypsy Made Simple episode with your wonderful followers! And to those that are here on She's A Sassy Lady do take a few minutes and check out The Bug Bytes for many wonderful craft ideas. This week we are revisiting why we purchased our Gypsy and why we love it so much. It can be as simple or complex as you want. Remember you can take a few shapes and alter them to fit your needs.
Let's get started. Grab a cup of coffee and turn your Gypsy on and we are ready to go.

I thought I would look at the camera this morning.... maybe it will feel a little more like you are sitting in my kitchen and we can create together! . Grab a cup of coffee, turn on your Gypsy and let's get to work.

See now wasn't that easy.... You can create whatever you want today.... JUST CREATE. This little video is me putting this card together. I really had a hard time with it. Bus, I think you agree it turned out beautiful.
Look at the close up of this card. Don't you just love the yummy papers? It is the from the Fall Gathering stack and the blue is from the Guys stack.
I just love the different textures on this card and sure hope Bobby and Jill like it!!!I am really nervous about that after just visiting their blog this morning and seeing the awesome card they posted. Such a talented couple.

Here is the inside of the card and it looks just as pretty as the outside don't you think? Well that is it for my post today except for the challenge!!!
I challenge you to CREATE!!! Doesn't matter whether it is a card, page, poster, sign or cake... just create something with your hands and link it up! I will choose 1 lucky winner using random.org to win a set of stamps. You must enter by 3:00 PM October 7th and winner will be announced Saturday the 8th. 
Thank you for your sweet sweet words of encouragement. Your comments continue to inspire me to share with you. See you next week! I hope to do a project on my new E2!!! See you then.

Thanks for taking time to share this beautiful thank you card. It is really pretty, and I like the crimping idea. I am going to try this idea on a birthday card to go with the mini I linked.
Take care and God Bless.

YAY! I already got this beautiful card in the mail, so I didn't have to avoid the blog waiting for it to come in. Hee! Hee! Sheila, we will treasure it forever! I just wish everyone could see how pretty it really is. Pictures just don't do it justice with that crimping and foiled paper. I linked up a Gypsy gone Crazy card I did today. I was able to create the hope ribbon using a tear drop and banner shape from Art Philosophy. Thanks so much for the beautiful card! It's so pretty, I feel like I should be making you a thank you card for your thank you card. Hee! Hee! Hugs!
