I am so.....

...happy to have found time, well, actually, LOTS of time to create today.   Nothing I have made is for any sort of challenges....instead my husband had asked me for some special Thank You notes for people who wrote/gave extra special remembrances for his father when he passed last month.  I  told my husband that I would be glad to do that for him and I was ....but again, it is my old problem with making the commitment and then finding enough time to meet that commitment.  Well lo and behold, perhaps life is really changing as I have found more than enough time lately to finish these little projects without tearing my hair out in the process!  And, the funny thing is, I had so much FUN with out trying to meet particular challenge requirements...anyone else ever have that happen?  I was more relaxed as I just made whatever the heck I wanted to.  But, I know myself and I will totally be back on the challenge band wagon soon...maybe tomorrow hehehe.

I used some fav-o-rite clear Penny Black stamps to make these notecards. These images are smaller and really wonderful...actually, so perfect for notecards....and I find that both stamp sets work really well together to create a set of cards to give.  So, here are my cards....some are duplicate images but I have matted them differently and so thought, what the hey...I'll just post them all.










Thank you so much for stopping by....twice in one day!  Am I a "power post-er" or what!

Be well,
Sheila

These are amazing! Such great colors and I love the color twine on them.

These are just lovely, Sheila1 I particularly love the one with vellum (I never think to use that). Isn't funny when you are doing something strictly from your heart it is so much easier. Know these will please.

I love the selection of cards you have posted and I have seen that grass stamp in a new light with the colour added to it. I have tended to use it in a single colour or as a silhouette so thank you for sharing.
