Last September I visited my son and his wife to help out with some babysitting while their second child was born.  I was so surprised when he and his wife sent me a sweet thank you in the form of a wonderful stamp set by Inkadinkado called “Thank You Words.”  Now how cool is that!  Here is a quick 5-minute card that uses this set.  Pretty much letting this gorgeous Lilybee Design “Happily Lost” designer paper do all of the work.  LOVE the tiny scaled patterns on these papers.. perfect for card making and so fun!

(Here are a couple of cards I made using other sentiments from this same set.)

Continuing with the “5-minute” theme, I made this card using one of SU’s latest SAB stamp sets.

The sentiment was punched out and popped up for a little interest on this CAS design.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Be sure to come back next week for some fun Blog Candy!!  Happy Crafting!

  2. Two lovely cards. Love the embossed scallop line on the white one and the fun mix of scallops at the top of the first.

  3. What a great idea to give a set of thank you sentiments as a thank you gift! You can never have too many sentiments. Very cute papers on the first card. Love the name of the collection — Happily Lost. I want to be there! The Adorning Accents folder adds a very nice touch to a CAS card. I just love anything embossed!
