Lots of Thank Yous

Happy Sunday everyone! We had a gorgeous day yesterday for soccer and today...it's pouring rain. My son has basketball tryouts today. Thankfully that will be inside.

Speaking of thankfully, I would like to THANK all of you for voting for me during the Practical Scrappers card contest. I didn't make it to the final round but I truly appreciate all the votes and the time you took to check out my entries. Thank you friends!

And speaking of thankfully again, do you send thank you cards? I make a big deal to my kids about sending cards after their birthdays and the holidays. But do you know what? Even though I love to make cards, I don't always get mine in the mail. Bad scrapper!! I know how nice it is to get a thank you in the mail. So I was determined to send some cards out this year for birthday gifts. So I pulled out a bunch of 6x6 paper pads, their scraps and got started.


For these, I used Bo Bunny papers, baker's twine, U.B.U. stamps from PSA Essentails, Hero Arts thank you stamp and some random bling. Easy to layer, tie, stamp and complete!

Here I used Pink Paislee Hometown Summer papers...


And here I used My Mind's Eye papers...


By using the same card design, I was able to create 6 cards in a short period of time. I used materials that would be almost flat so I could actually send these in a regular envelope. While I love making cards that have lots and lots of layers, sometimes I need one to actually fit in a regular envelope!

I hope you're having a great weekend so far, Enjoy your Sunday!!

Anyone would be happy to receive one of these cards! I made sure my kids sent thank you cards too! Not many do anymore, but I'm sure it's always appreciated.

Pretty cards! Sorry to hear you didnt make it all the way in the contest :( but your cards were awesome. I almost always make thank you cards (hardly ever bday cards) but sometimes I forget to send them too. I think I owe some family members a few thank yous--off to make them :)
