Some Thank You Cards

Posted by Kathy Torrence on May 9, 2008 in Cards, Crafts |

I finally had a chance to play in my craft room this morning – good thing, because Emily and I had several cards to make!

I used the "Peas Be With You" kit from Paula’s Kit Club that I received back in MARCH and haven’t had a chance to play with yet (time certainly does fly, doesn’t it?).

I wanted to make a thank you card for my friend Linda who not only gave me some wonderful birthday presents, but was also kind enough to let Emily and I stay with her in Florida for the weekend last month.  I also wanted to make a card for her friend Judy to thank her for her kindness on my birthday as well.

NOTE – If Linda and/or Judy are reading this, don’t read ahead unless you want to see your cards before you receive them!!!

So here are the cards:

P5080017

P5080015

The top card uses a vintage veggie can label and the bottom card uses a vintage squash seed package.  Paula included some adorable little veggie charms in her kit (her kits are so fabulous!) and I have a little asparagus on the top card and some peas on the bottom card.  I used a little chipboard piece on each card and embossed "Thank You" on top.

I also made a simple Mother’s Day card for my mom (I know she doesn’t read my blog, so I’m safe with this one):

P5080007

I used the Easter kit from Paula’s Kit Club for this one.  I took a gatefold card and added some handmade paper inside and out and tied it shut with a ribbon.  I also embossed "MOM" using Stampin’ Up!’s "Lovely Letters" stamp set and silver embossing powder.

I actually considered canceling Paula’s Kits for a while when money was really tight…but it was the one little luxury that I just had to keep.  I still look forward to her package every month and hope she keeps them coming for a long, long time!
