Thank You Cards

A friend of mine recently lost her MIL and asked me to make a few thank you cards for her. It's never easy to lose a loved one and I know that she has wonderful friends who were generous in their time and support. I knew that she'd want these cards fairly quickly so I turned to some sketches to get these done quickly. For the first one I used CPS sketch # 156 .

The paper is from My Mind's Eye (Wild Asparagus). I had bought a paper pack with the whole Wild Asparagus line a while ago at Winner's (like Marshalls). I love, love this line and find myself using it a lot.

This next card is for Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge # 102. This is my first time playing with Taylored Expressions. My friend Barb has been playing with them for a long time now. Such amazing inspiration over at their site.

And so from there, I just kept going...

And going...
These all fall under my Olide Moldie Monday challenge. The paper is from 2007 and I'm sure I've had that stamp from Inkadinkadoo for many moons now. I think this is the first time it has seen any ink (gasp!). If you'd like to join Barb and I in our Oldie Moldie Monday challenge, we've set up a Flickr group here. The only requirements are that you use something that has been in your stash for a while. It doesn't really need to be that moldie...

I'm sad that the Olympics are over, it was so nice to sit down in the evening and catch up with the day's events. It sure ended with tons of excitement yesterday frm the men's hockey game. Sad for the US to lose, it was such a nail biter! But I'm so glad Canada won it on home ice. Were you watching?
