a quick thanks!

if you're looking for my lawnscaping blog hop post, click << here >>! :)

i was so touched by the super sweet comments left by everyone during the lawnscaping blog hop this weekend! and after seeing everyone's amazing-fabulous-wonderful-inspiring-creative-beautiful cards, i was filled with inspiration, gratitude and creativity myself! so i whipped up these two similar and easy-to-make thank you cards!

i used hero arts stamps 'happy hello' and a die that i had from papertrey ink for the cut out of the card. i also wanted to use these cards for one of the current contests going on at hero arts for the month of september: creating a window card.

all i did was stamp the images onto monochromatic colors for the owls and fussy cut them out (i also stamped the owl onto the card itself, so when i popped up the fussy cut out owls, they have a bit of a shadow behind them! easy peasy.

then, to keep the cards light and bright and clean, i made some of my white felt flowers and added them to the card with a hint of ribbon and a matching button to complete the 'flowers'. :)

the cards were super simple and easy to make, but that was my goal. i wanted to be able to make a bunch of them, so i could always have access to a thank you card for someone special!

well that's it!

enjoy! :)
