One Little Word…Thanks SIP #8

Thank You

 I have a little bit of bad news.  This hasn’t happened to me since college!  I feel like screaming and I’m so close to pulling my hair out.  But I won’t because everyone is sleeping and I don’t want to go bald.  What did I do?  Ugh!  I can’ seriously just kick myself right now!  What did I do?  It’s down below (picture me crying right here).

SIP Where has time gone!?  We’re on card challenge number eight and I’m lovin’ it! I’m really looking forward to seeing what you come up with this week’s challenge.  Could it be a thank you card?


  • Layers.  Something I’ve learned as a card-maker is the magic of layers.  Layers add dimension to a card when it’s simple and you don’t want to make it to foo-foo…like foo coffee (lol).  To determine what color to use think of the saying “opposites attract”.  For example, Crumb Cake as card base, Early Espresso to layer, and Very Vanilla to finish it off.  Did that make sense?   If not, think of it this way, dark blouse, light pants, dark shoes.
  • My bad news/mistake.  I wrote a really good post today citing an article I researched about the etiquette of sending a thank you card.   I took too long to hit the save button and wordpress timed out, thereby losing everything I had written—LoL.  I haven’t made that mistake since college many moons ago.  Imagine my heart sinking down to the pit of my stomach.  Basically, the article was about the importance of sending a thank you note anytime you receive a gift.  Read more about the article here.

Always Open.  This week I had a conversation with a friend who expressed her desire for a discount on her paper-crafting supplies, but fear a committment or a penalty if she signed up just to receive constant reminders about making sales or holding workshops.  I told her that my team is a non-hassle, non-committment, no sales requirement team.  What does that mean?  Read it  here.
