See, I can make nice cards sometimes...'s just not that often. My friend JoAnn loves ANY and ALL flower stamps. It's so funny when we go shopping together, I head for the funny stuff and she heads for the frilly stuff. We always get a chuckle out of that.

These little Thank You cards are for my Mother in Law. I have the BEST Mother in Law in the whole wide world - she's such a SWEETIE. She recently needed some Thank You cards so I thought, "hey, I can do that for you." I love being able to help her with things. I picked up these Lockhart images over at Ellen Hutson, LLC. Ellen has a fantastic store and lots of Lockhart stamps. One thing about ordering from Ellen is, she ships FAST. I mean REALLY fast!! I ordered these Friday and had them on Monday. Wow! These cards are the regular A1 note card size and I used my Martha Stewart border punch on the bottom of the front panel. I printed a sentiment inside and then ran them back through the printer for the front sentiment. Then I stamped the images and colored them with my Lyra pencils. Since this is just a single piece of cardstock with no layers, you would see the Copics bleed through on the inside of the card, so I used the pencils instead. This is the first time I've ever used FlowerSoft. I really like the look. It's on the far back image, on the purple flowers (whatever they are!). Can you tell I'm NOT a yard person? Hate, hate, hate yardwork! This is about as close as I get to dirt. He-he! I made 20 of these little guys, so needless to say - I'm pooped!! Ok, let me know what you think and have a great day!

Here are a few close ups:
