The long delayed thank you cards...

I had one of those moments this morning when I realized that I totally dropped the ball. I had never made thank you cards for my littlest kiddos birthday party that was LAST MONTH! Totally slipped my mind - oops. Well, there are definitely worse things that happen, so I really can't complain, right?!

Anyway, back to the thank you cards. Since they are soooo late and I had 14 to make, I went w/really easy peasy (plus that is what I seem to be into of late)!

I am lovin the white CS from Paper Trey Ink - definitely not as flimsy as SU's, so it makes for a great card base. I love the clean, crisp look of using white CS for the base. And I have also been making great use out of the sentiment set they released as their first set. Yes, I know - as usually, I am way behind the times, but like I said, things could be waaayyy worse.

Anyway, so here is the thank you card...one image (new SU set - Year After Year), one Paper Trey Ink sentiment, Palette Hybrid ink pad in Noir Black (this is definitely my new fave black ink pad!), my trusty aquapainter, 2 ink pads and a little bit of Stickles - I like how it came together. Simple, but gets the message across.


I was able to start them this morning and left the Stickles to dry while we spent the afternoon at the town pool. When we got home - I wrote the cards out and even addressed the envies and wahoo, they are ready to send out tomorrow. Definitely the most efficient project I have done to date. Yay me. ;)

Your easy peasy cards are just too cute- they definitely look classy and not "easy cheesy"!! Nicely done- i'll have to order some of that white cardstock... :D

How cute are these? You make them look so easy - even though I'm so scared to try making one! DId I just give you an idea for a challenge? Maybe I should keep my mouth shut!
