Thank you cards

With high school graduation coming up soon, it seems I've got a lot of thank you cards to send out.  I used this week's OWH sketch - #226  - as inspiration for one of them.
The flower is from the Silhouette online store - #33935; stamps by Hero Arts Everyday Sayings.  I discovered that gold gets along with well with purple, a color that really challenges me.

I didn't have enough papers left over to make another card like this one, so I pulled out my new Hero Arts Tiny Flag stamp and made several thank you cards (inspired by Jennifer McGuire -here  ):
My last thank you cards are intended for my son's music teachers - all male.  A masculine musical thank you card - that's a mouthful!  I used Tim Holtz papers, tags and metal embellishment for my card:
I cut the instruments on my Silhouette and inked them with Aged Mahogany and Forest Moss.
I went to Joann's today and they had tons of clearance prices on Tim Holtz items - I stocked up!  Woohoo!  You might want to check that out, if you've got a Joanns near you.

I'm entering my masculine card in the following challenges:
Hobby Cutz - Vintage
Glitter N Sparkle - Metal
Pile it on - Add some metal

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Wow - your musical card with the notes and instruments is very cool! Thanks so much for joining us this week at the Pile it On Challenge, Elizabeth (DT)

  2. I really like all of these cards. Love the colors in your first card and the group of cards are so nice and cheery looking. Your musical card is really a delight and will be greatly appreciated by all his teachers. Great productive day.

  3. Wonderful group of cards! The purple flower is exquisite, royalty colors! Love the use of vellum for the banners, adds richness without overwhelming the flower mat! TFS!

  4. Love all these cards!! Thank you so much for joining us at Pile It On. :) -Alycia
