CCCB August Challenge: Thank You

Good afternoon!

Normally this would post in the morning, but I have been scrambling around like a crazy woman trying to clean this house after our big family camping trip. It is a disaster, and almost clean (finally) so I feel I can take this much deserved break to post my Crafter's Companion Challenge Blog August challenge :)

This month, we want you to show your thanks to someone by making a thank you card or project. Show us how you are thankful using your favorite Crafter's Companion stamp and linking it up on our blog :)

What, you may ask, is the prize this month? Well before I can get to all of that, I thought I'd mention that the rules have changed just a little. We are requiring at least 10 projects be linked up before we go handing out prizes. If we come a bit short, the prize rolls over into the next month.

Anywho, here's what is up for grabs this month: the CleverCut 5-in-one Paper Trimmer!

Here's my project, a purse card for a special friend. I am thankful for her kindness, knowing that hubby and I weren't going to be able to afford a hotel room for our recent hiking trip...she got us a hotel room :) Yes, hubby did her vehicle's brakes, and I guess this is a way to pay me back, but it was a little over and above what someone will normally do for another. We were thankful to enjoy a nice sleep the night before our big hike in a huge and comfortable king sized bed rather than a tent :) Thanks, Kathy!

I used some leftover bits from the Fairyopolis Cardmaking Kit...the pearls and the pretty pink flower.
I thought the Humphrey Birthday Girl stamp set was perfect here, she looks like she's shyly thanking someone, don't you think?

The Ultimate Tool and the Advanced Construction Techniques DVD made it a snap to put together this purse card! I couldn't believe how quick and easy it came together!

Grab your Crafter's Companion stamps and enter our Thank You challenge today! Don't forget to check the post from earlier, I'm giving something away...and if you love Crafter's Companion, you'll love what's up for grabs!!!!

That's all for now. I have a screaming caffeine headache at the moment, let's hope hubby remembers to pick up coffee while he is at the grocery store! We were out this morning :( The craft room just isn't happening right now. So sad, as I'm all alone in a clean house. Whatever shall I do now?????
