Little thank you's

I wanted to thank 2 friends for being so nice to me lately and helping me out. It also gave me an excuse to make something I just hadn't had to the reason to before - a Coaster Post it Note Holder. I covered a coaster with the beautiful Holiday Treasures DSP and sponged the edges in Close to Cocoa. Then I covered binder clip with a coordinating paper from the same pack. Isn't this paper so pretty? I cut a strip of Red Riding Hood cs , rolled it up and inserted it into a clear barrel pen and tied 2 widths of ribbon on the clip. Easy and so cute! Of course my selection of post it notes didn't really match so I'll have to make a stop for that. Wouldn't it be neat if I could find notes that matched my colors?





















I also needed a quick card and actually took the layers away from my original plan because it just wasn't working right when I remembered seeing some challenges being a one layer card and they looked great. So, I went for simple and think it turned out well. I markered the flowers from Live Your Dream in Ballet Blue, Apricot Appeal and Certainly Celery. Then stamped the Thanks in Apricot and added the Blue ribbon. Voila!
