Thank You Card Trio

I have been busy creating lots of cards without digi's or coloring.  I have so many neglected supplies in "My Stash".  I just decided to use up some of my former "have-to-haves" and try-out some new techniques.  It was a painful beginning because I have had severe withdrawal pains from my Copics.  Sometimes I just stare at them and other times I just hold them and caress them.  I even take the tops off and put them back on just to hear that wonderful clicking sound. Oh come on, you know what I mean,  don't you ?  You know you do!

I saw some CAS style cards on other blogs, so I thought I would give it a try using the "Thank You" sentiment.  I created it on the computer, but stamped little swirlies and a butterfly (stamped twice, fussy cut and popped up) on the card to decorate a bit.  The card stock is all Stampin Up and the design paper for the yellow and blue one is from Imaginique and the aqua card paper is from Paper TreyInk.  You may even see a sprinkling of Stickle"s Glitter here and there.

They are clean and simple, but I would still be proud to send them out to a friend because the DP is so gorgeous, it speaks for itself.  Too many times I have bought  beautiful DP and then I proceed to cover it up.  Whatcha think?

Whatever you are up to this week, stay warm and Happy Crafting to you!  Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule and peek at my latest creation.  I just love all of your "pea-pickin" hearts.  Ya'll come back now, ya here?  Muwah

Going to enter this one in Sentimental Sunday:  Challenge #139 Thank You


  1. Our snow is gone and it's not raining right now so I'm hoping to stay relatively warm and dry today. I know just what you mean about playing with stash without actually using it and I also know what you mean about the former must haves which get replaced by newer must haves. You've done a fab job, Linda. Thank you cards is something I should have as a standby but I almost never have any standby cards ready. Hugs, Lesley

  2. Linda, these are gorgeous. I agree, sometimes the DP gets overlooked way too much. I am going to give this idea a try because it is AWESOME !! Hope all is well.

  3. You are absolutely right about covering pretty DP, love your idea for showcasing their beauty! Great cards and always useful!
