feeling thankful apparently! i have been inspired by several bloggers out there to make a set of thank you cards...either as a stash to send out with orders or as a set for a friend (i gave her a provo tin filled with cards a few years ago for her birthday and she loved it...she is one of those that sends thank you cards out consistently). i knew i wanted to use three things for sure...1) my prints pack from stampin' up! 2) live your dream stamp set from stampin' up! 3) some fun ribbons that i tend not to use...either from my hoarding tendencies or from lack of matching...you know, those pattern ones or multi color stripes that are adorable???
well, mission accomplished! all three ingredients used and 10 thank you cards to add to the stash...xcept, i kinda love them and think i now need to hoard these:
oh, sorry...guess you would like a better look...sorry, couldn't resist that picture...love it!!
how can something so simple be so stinkin' cute? i really love them...A LOT! just in case you need a better look...
there...a close up! and, here is the humble beginning...
i started with the print paper, then picked a ribbon that went well with it, thus making way for a matching card stock that brought out a color in the ribbon...worked great! they are all on a base of papertrey ink's stamper's select white card stock (love, love, love it)...it was easy to assemble them once i got the basic sketch planned out...simple, quick, adorable...yay!!
