Here are 3 of the Thank You notes that I promised to show you! Basically the same image piece...but 3 different looks!! I just love, love, love this Merci stamp set...it's an amazingly versatile set to work with, but its time to move on. I need to get ready for my March workshops & some fun new projects = ) !
Part of the reason that these all look so similar is that I used up the various image pieces and other elements that were sitting on my workbench from earlier in the week. It was kind of fun...like a card kit...most of the elements were there, they just needed to be assembled. I don't know about you, but I'm not always good about using up those extra pieces. At times, I seem to have the attention span of a Sandflea (lol!)...and after a day or two (sometimes an hour or 2) of working with the same colors, stamps and papers...I'm just ready to move on. I had a little chat with myself about trying to more diciplined along with trying to be creative. And so...I used up those scraps and as a reward, I now have a clean workbench to start out a new week = ) !! Yay! I did pull out one new thing for the last card, some Berry Bliss DP...and it worked beautifully with the cardstock colors I already had out. Hooray for brown and pink !Supplies for the cards ~
