Well, now that these have all gone postal I thought I'd post the thank you's that I made for the people who gave me end-of-the-year gifts. Though these gifts are really not necessary, they are appreciated so I just like to send a little note letting them know how very sweet they've been to think of me.
I was blessed with several plants, both for the garden and the office, a beautiful bouquet of flowers that was shared with a friend, candy, memo pads, a gift card to a local eatery, a pin, some yummy Italian baked goods, a new tea to try, and our office was treated to a lunch, complete with pastries from a local deli.
The stamps are from the set Touch of Kindness from the Summer Mini. I kept the layout simple because I had a about a dozen of them to do. I added Crystal Effects to the water droplets on the bird bath to give them the appearance of wetness. The image was colored with SU markers and I sponged around the edges of the image panel. The card base was stamped repeatedly with the "thank you" stamp from the set in both VersaMark and Bashful Blue ink.
