Very Thankful Turtle

I have been busy making convention swaps. NO, I am not going- no funds this year. However, my fellow demo and friend Gwynne is going and she said she would swap for me. I actually came up with 3 different cards, but I thought I would share this one with you.

This set is the new Ronald McDonald set, called "very thankful", $2 from every set sold goes to support the Ronald McDonald House charities. There are 4 images of thanks for only $14.95. If you are not familiar with RMDH- it is a place for families to stay for free while their child is receiving cancer treatment.

When making a swap, you need to be able to re-create many things over and over in mass production fashion, that is why I went with a simple design.

recipe:
stamp set: very thankful
ink: stazon black (watercolored with soft suede, crushed curry, rose red, celery, old olive, bermuda bay)
cs: water color paper, soft suede, kraft, rose red, thoroughly modern dsp
access: fresh favorites buttons II, linen thread, circle cutter, scallop edge punch
