More thanks

I managed to get another thank you card done today. This card is for my wonderful neighbour who looked after our house and yard while we were away:

This card incorporates some new product from the new catalogue and from the upcoming holiday mini. The card base is crumb cake which is embossed with a new embossing folder, Houndstooth. The stamp set used is Always Thankful which will be available in the holiday mini starting September 1st. The wheat stalks and bucket were stamped on water colour paper with soft suede ink and colored in with a blender pen using soft suede and daffodil delight. The corners were accentuated with the new mini brads. These brads are tiny but oh so cute!! Grateful was stamped on daffodil delight card stock using soft suede ink and then punched out with the decorative label punch.

Here is another card that I made up before the surgery and gave out to some of the wonderful nursing staff:

Everyone we dealt with at the hospital was so kind and understanding. It was important to me to thank the people that went out of their way to make things easier for us. This card uses the stamp set from Touch of Kindness found in the summer mini. This mini is only valid until August 31st. The image was also stamped on water colour paper and coloured with a blender pen. Crystal Effects was used to highlight the water drops and the flower in the sentiment. The sentiment comes from the mini hostess set, Swirls and Curls Verses.

I think I may be done with thank you cards for now. It's time to get working on some Thanksgiving and Halloween cards for the Kards for Kids program. I will post pics as soon as I get a few done. Thanks for stopping by.
