Thank You Cards

     I recently made a dozen "Thank You" cards for a non-profit organization.  They use them to send a bit of gratitude to donors or for volunteers who work on their fund raising events.  I used a very CAS design, making them all similar but on different colored CS, with different stamped "Thank You" sentiments.  They are all blank inside for a hand written message.

     The 'smile...' sentiment was computer printed and hand cut and is the same for each card in the set of a dozen.  The various 'thank you' sentiments are stamped, then heat embossed with either white or black EP, depending on which shows up the best on the particular CS color.   All the CS came from my stash and I did a layer of white CS on the inside of each card.   Other colors are green, blue, purple, red, pastel pink, yellow, brown, and kraft.

     Here's to a great day and even a great week!  We had rain yesterday and we're very grateful for it.  It wan't enough to cure our 4-year drought, but every bit helps and we had a steady, light rain for about 5 hours.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Fantastic about the rain!!!! You're right too - every drop helps. Maybe things will turn around now and you'll start getting more.

Great thank you cards and I love the 'smile' sentiment. I know each and every one of them were appreciated too. Like the way you did them in different colors!
