Canada and blessings

I made two cards tonight. The first is a thank you note for a friend having me over for dinner. It is the perfect reason to use my really random Micheal's Dollar Stamps. I was digging through the bin and found these two Canada stamps. The first if of the country. The second is a version of the flag. I wondered if I would use them at first, then I realized I would find an array of reasons to get my $2 worth. Here is the first pass at using them.



The second card provided an excuse to use my new paper tray set. I used pallet hybrid ink and distressed the paper for the look I was going for. I wanted something soft and pretty. Nothing to perky. It is a simple blessings card for a friend that is having some health problems.



Hope you like the cards and have a great week!
