Simple Thank you cards

Gabriel decided that 4:30 a.m. was the time I should wake up this morning. I can't complain too much though because the pup has slept all night since we got him. Since we were up and awake I decided to make some simple thank you cards. These are, by no means, works of art. They are just some simple thank you cards that I whipped up. I need to make a variety and I thought these would lend themselves to a variety of colors and easy mass production.

The first is a summery sunny yellow and orange. Thank you very much is by Anna Griffin (All Night Media) stamps. The floral background stamp is Stampin' UP!. The scalloped eyelet edge is a Martha Stewart punch.

The second Thanks is with Martha Stewart robin egg blue card stock on which I used my cuttlebug thanks in many languages embossing folder. The ribbon was on the Michaels sale table called Sweet & Sassy ribbon. The white hydrangia flower was a fun find at the grocery store. I found this HUGE stalk of flowers for $4.00! I removed the petals and stored them. I must have hundreds upon hundreds of these pretty white silk flowers.

The third card is made on a lovely linen weave paper. I love this card stock. Again I used my Martha Stewart eyelet scallop punch for the border. The rose is from an All Night Media brass stencil to which I applied embossing paste, colored with Tombow markers and added a litte pink crystal to the center for a little BLING! The Many Thanks sentiment stamp is also an Anna Griffin (All Night Media) stamp.

I'm working on a Mary Engelbreit thank you card right now. Maybe I'll finish it later. Time to play with the pups!


  1. It looks like you have had a busy AND creative morning, also! I LOVE the orange on your floral card. I love reading about Gabriel and how he's adjusting to his new surroundings, also. TFS!

  2. Congratulations on entering the wonderful world of blogging :) I love the cards you have created. I have added you to my blog roll and will visit you every day when I blog surf!



  3. I really like these cards, esp the ones that you used the MS punch border. I just might have to get me one of those. Nice job. Can't wait to see the next batch of cards.

  4. I am so glad to hear that Gabriel is learning to enjoy your quality creative time! Excellent results!
    The orange floral card is my personal favorite! Looking forward to your next blog!

  5. Gorgeous cards...I'm especially fond of the orange one. That lace scallop punch is wonderful.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. I truly appreciate them.
