OWH Midweek Throw-down, Thank You Cards



Happy Midweek Throw-down Challenge! This week's challenge is for Thank You cards.  First, a huge "Thank you" to Jan for being the hostess of this challenge for the last couple of years. 

Jan, I wish you nothing but happiness as you begin a new life adventure. 
:)

I can not remember where the idea came from for this card (would love to give someone credit here,) but the idea was to take all of your "thank you" stamps and arrange them to be the focal point of the card. Whomever it was said a company that she purchases from always includes a free "thank you" stamp so she had built up a little collection and this seemed like a great way to use them. 
Does anyone know?

This process is definitely easier with clear stamps than wood-mounted.  You just try to arrange them in a way that is pleasing, easy! 

Other items used:
Background paper- just a scrap from my stash (sorry, I do not know who makes it.)
"Basket Weave" stamp from "Fun Stamper's Journey"
Tim Holtz ink "Fired Brick" 
 Recollections Clear embossing powder     
Viva Pearl Pen in Gold (the little dots everywhere.)

Thank you for visiting!

    1. Thank you Lindsay! Some day I am hoping to have space in my crafty head to consider doing some of the resin work you have been doing. You are making it look so cool!
