{ Dinner Thank You Notes }

Some people from our church were kind enough to make us meals after the baby was born, so I needed to make yet some more thank you cards! They didn't turn out as I envisioned, partially because of lack of stamps. I can't believe with ALL the darn stamps that I have I don't have one of food! Fortunately I did have the tag set with the "Yum, Yum" stamp. I was definitely happy to find that stamp so I didn't have to go out and try to buy one.

Also pretty simple and explanation shouldn't be needed. I love how these cards turned out. In my opinion they are some of the best cards I've made. All the paper and ribbon was old scraps. So my color choices were somewhat limited. Also some of the cards open on the side and some on the top. The ribbon was adhered to the back of the tags, which are popped up with dimensionals. Anyway, hope you like!

{ Baby Thank You Notes }

Hello Everyone!

Well it has been a LONG time but I actually had some time to stamp for a change. Of course it's all baby related though. She's sleeping right now, I have a bunch to post and not much time so I'm going to make all this quick.

In February I made a ton of thank you cards, but I ran out, so I had to make some more today.

I don't think much explanation is needed here. Due to lack of time I went super simple. The coloring was done with my watercolor crayons. I think the hardest thing about these cards were finding the supplies as I moved since I last stamped and I couldn't remember where I put everything!
