A trio of thank you cards

I brought a bunch of my stamps and inks upstairs to the dining room table on Monday and made a bunch of thank you card with the kids. Their assignment was to make four each: one for each grandma and their two uncles (& their families). They enjoyed using my stamps (I'm glad I have so many thank you ones to go around!) Some of their favourite stamps were the tiny treats: Valentines and Boy Basics: Game On.

I made three thank you cards, as well. I wanted to keep them one layer, if possible, so that they'd be easier (read: cheaper) to mail.

This first one I made for the recap of all the Make It Mondays from the last year. I chose the very first MIM: the go to sentiment card.

I used PTI cardstock (aqua mist) & stamps (rosie posie, think big favourites #4 & #5, mat stack #1 & botanical silhouettes).

I used PTI cardstock (hawaiian shores, stamper's select white) & stamps (happy day, think big favourites #3 & guide lines 2) & dies (happy day).

And for this third card, I used PTI cardstock (canyon clay) & stamps (stitches and swirls, think big favourites #5). I added a few little gems for flower centres.

Thanks for looking!
