Thank you... x6

A colleague requested a handful of thank you cards to hand out at the end of the school year... and once inspiration struck, this is what I came up with!  (I know this is nothing new, but maybe some of you will be inspired to get some simple cards busted out... there should be a blog called "Get-'er-done" for serious quick CAS cards!)

(This is one of my faves of the set)

(This one would be a good, quick sympathy card with the right colors...)


  • I stamped the three stamps (Tim's doily, Rubber Stampede flower, Dyan's stars) into MementoLuxe in Tuxedo Black
    • NOTE: the flower stamp was made even more "grungy" a few years ago when Millie, the hound, was a pup.  Back when I was crafting in the kitchen, she found a box of rubber stamps as she was cutting her adult teeth... oh man, she went to town.  Destroyed a bunch, but this flower stamp was actually improved by her gnawing! 
  • Loew Cornel watercolors were used and I chose the combinations by just looking at the palette and grabbing "three in a row" cakes!
  • The "thank you" was hand-written with a Tombow dual-tip
I'll share these at the following challenges...

  5. That is a grungy stamp! Dang! LOL! I have a new collection of old shadow stamps and want to make up some of these for my friend. Great inspiration!

  6. I think we all find ourselves needing a last minute card or ten, even though we make like a hundreds a year or something like that. I certainly appreciate getting ideas for last minute cards and how to make each a little different even though the technique is pretty much the same...

  7. Those brush strokes look awesome :) thank you for sharing with ATCAS
