Good Morning!  I'm posting early today beause I have lots to get done plus my son is home sick from school again today.  This cold is going through my enitre family now, it's that time of year I guess.  Today I wanted to share the thank you card I made for my daughter's birthday party last week.

I wanted to make cards that were quick and easy to make. I rarely make OLC (or one layer cards), but I thought it would be a good opportunity to give it a try.

This is a retired stamp set I purchased last year from the mini catalog. I just love this Watercolor Trio stamp set and I'm secretly hoping that Stampin' Up! will put this set in the new catalog- they probably won't but it's wishful thinking right?

There was no special technique to making these cards, I simply cut my sheet of card stock in half, folded them in half to make my card and then I just stamped the flowers, leaves along the bottom of my card.  The sentiment I stamped towards the top in the center and lastly I stamped the butterfly just above and to the right of my thank you sentiment.

I didn't even use my stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp these cards, I just inked up my stamps and stamped.  Seriously, these cards were so easy to make, I had 22 of them whipped up in just over an hour!

Stamps: Watercolor Trio, Thank You Kindly
Card Stock: White
Ink: Melon Mambo, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Black Stazon Pin It
