You know sometimes you just need a quick thank you note. Or a whole stack of quick thank you notes. But quick doesn’t necessarily mean that they can’t be special now, does it?! As I was working on my card for last Wednesday’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge, my youngest son was working on some thank you notes for his birthday presents. With all the the winter weather days (I’d call them snow days but sometimes they come without snow…like today….again….), I have had no choice but to create with the kids “helping”. In this case, he decided that he liked the colors I was using and oh, by the way, he needed some extra note cards. So I made a few of these lickety-split.
I took the already inky sponge daubers and created the ombre look on this fabulous sentiment. Then I stamped right onto the ever-so-handy Note Cards. If you don’t have a pack of these in your craft room, you just need to fix that. Like now! I cannot tell you how many time they have saved me. Many times I hand them to the kids and they stamp happily and create amazing cards. Or in this case, it provided a quick way to make sure we didn’t lose the momentum of writing thank you cards. When you capture a 9 year old boy and get him writing, you just don’t let him stop until he is done!!
Ok, so I’m still typing but you could have like 10 of these done by now. I think that I may make a pack of them in different colors to have on hand. And another pack to have on hand as a gift. Crazy how much I am liking something that is really so simple. I hope you love this idea as much as I do. Let me know what you think and then let me know what colors YOU think would be awesome together on this.
I have a really fabulous card all ready to share for you on Monday and I can hardly wait for you to see it. So glad you stopped in today. Hope you have a great weekend!
