Kitten & Puppy Thank You

     Last year, I made a card very similar to this one and, when a friend of mine saw it, she asked if I could make a set of them so that she could use them for Thank You cards after the holidays.  She does a lot of entertaining and is often given hostess gifts by those invited to her home.  She likes to send out handwritten 'Thank You' cards and finding handmade cards made them even more special in her mind.

     I used the same image on each one and varied the color of the burlap and the bow so that she'd have a few different colors to use.  This is the most neutral of them.


I based them on the sketch at Sketch Saturday
turned sideways and with one piece behind the image instead of two.


     I colored with ProMarkers, die cut the image and the two mats, and layered everything together onto the burlap.  The background is made with fiber paper.  The bow is one of those I make and toss in my stash for later use.

     Another short post but my time is just so full that I'm getting little crafting or posting time.  After the New Year, I promise.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
