XOXO - Cheery Thank You's



A couple of bright & cheery cards I've been piecing together that I want to share with you today.  Both of my cards use the October Afternoon Sidewalks patterned paper collection.  I'm in love with these happy prints that are so easy to mix and match.

I went through and cut a little stack of several different elements for "production line" assembly... all my bases are the same: lots of little scallop edges, kraft doilies, tags, etc.  I wanted all the cards to use the same pieces but be a bit unique in their own right.

I'll be sending these as thank you's for my daughter's recent birthday... I think they will be perfect for a girlie vibe.  Tomorrow she will color pictures to be included on the inside as an extra touch.  It is so sweet that she enjoys crafting with me - being three is pretty great. ;)

XOXO.

OOOH, MY GOODNESS!! These cards are ADORABLE!! The mixy-matchy paper reminds me of country wallpaper! PERFECT with little doilies!

Coupled with your little one's SPECIAL drawings, they are SURE to put BIG SMILES on the recipients' faces!!

Beautiful card Denise! Love all the layers and the pretty colors and all your details. BTW Congrats on making the cover of the November CARDS!! That's awesome and it is a great card. Unfortunately, my November issue never came - they're supposed to be sending me one now. I hope I get the December one b/c I have a card in there!!
