A few more Thank You notes

I hope you all had a GREAT weekend. We had a wonderful one - nothing too exciting, just hanging out and playing mostly. I wanted to share a few more "Thank You" cards with you today. I made these some time ago and never got to posting them - so why wait any longer! They all were pretty simple to make, no bells or whistles this time around.

This first one I made as a part of the Featured Stamper Challenge on SCS a long time ago. I saw this card by Liz (LazyLizard) and thought that I would give it a go. This was the first time I had ever done the Feature Stamper challenge on SCS. They all do such an awesome job on their cards, that I find it a bit intimidating to "recreate" them! So anymore I just browse through their galleries and admire their works. I did not use the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots on the background, I just used a polka dot stamp and I did change the image stamped to the flower instead of the cherries. 

You can find my "Inspired Thank You" card on SCS - HERE.

Stamps: Polka Dot & Paisley and Short & Sweet
Paper: Whisper White, Pink Passion and Basic Black
Inks: Pink Passion and Basic Black
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, White Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals and adhesive

I made this card for Stephanie over at "Steph's Stampin' Stuff". I had won some blog candy that she was giving out and I wanted to send her a "Thank You" for it all. I have and still am enjoying it all - there was quite an assortment of things. Thanks again Stephanie! If you have not checked out her blog, please do so! She is very talented and has some wonderful things to share!

You can find my "Winnings Thank You" card on SCS - HERE.

Stamps: Thank You Kindly
Paper: Kraft, Really Rust and Pattern Paper
Inks: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Scallop Edge Punch, American Craft Ribbon, 
Hemp Twine and adhesive

This last "Thank You" is one I made for no one in particular, yet. It is in my stash, so one of my lucky Message Followers may receive it - who knows! This Trendy Trees stamp set is making it's way onto my Favorite Stamp Set list. I love how it is so simple to get out and make a cute little card in a few minutes. What's your favorite stamp set? Let me know and I will send one commenter a little something! Drawing closes 11:59pm April 1st, the kids will pick sometime April 2nd.

These are all wonderful cards, so very pretty!! That trendy trees set is sooo starting to grow on me after all the cards i've seen done with it. The set i'm in love with is Thoughts and Prayers.

I saved all three cards for future CASE possibilities. My favorite has to be the third on using Trendy Trees as that stamp set is my current favorite. It just came in my SAB order and I can't wait to ink it up. jmniffer
