I did not mean to make two happy thank you cards

Honest, I went to my stamping pile with the purpose of making a sympathy card. This is what happened. I made these two really bright happy cards that I will use for thank you notes this weekend.

I started out with this card because I thought if I made one happy card with the sketch challenge for the week, that would get me moving and I would make the sympathy cards. This card had a mind of its own and I was not able to use the original image in the middle that I stamped and colored. I did get to finally put some ink on this word on word hostess set, so that was fun. I like the card too.


Well, then I had this random happy butterfly image that I "needed" to use. That lead to some more cuttle bugging and lots of layer to create this little thank you note. I think it might still need something, so there is chance it will come apart and get some extra ribbon or stamping. Only time will tell.



The good news is that I am stamping with the girls this weekend. There will be six of us playing for about three or four hours. It will be fun. Look forward to great treasures to come.

Have a great day!
