A Week of Gratitude: Day 5--This One's For You!

I couldn't do a week of thank you cards and not make one for you! I'd probably still blog if nobody read me, but man it feels good when a million-zillion people leave sweet comments everyday. I love sharing what I make with all of you and I love looking at your blogs as well. So, THANK YOU! I appreciate you more than you'll ever know!


This is a little square one layer card that I stamped with PTI dark chocolate ink and colored in with KIN pencils blended with Prismacolor markers.  The flower is Rubber Stampede and the sentiment is Hero Arts.

I've so enjoyed sharing another week with Susan.  She's such a thoughtful designer, I love reading her as much as I like looking at her gorgeous cards.

At the bottom of this post you'll find the InLinkz that Susan set up for this week's challenge. It will be open until November, and we invite you link up your thank you cards until then.

Don't forget to comment, we'll leave comments open on all 10 posts from this week until Saturday at Midnight and we'll draw our winners on Sunday or Monday.

I accidently stamped with brown ink one day instead of black. I like seeing the outlines a different color.

Love this one. I'm a kraft paper junkie and never think to color on kraft paper. It looks so earthy, rich and textured. I will now, thanks for the inspiration.

What a sweet flower. I have fallen in love with the small square cards, one layer, and simple. I have made sets to give to my friends and family. They make nice note cards. Thanks for this fun week and reminder to thank people who are special in our lives.
