So many ways of saying

Thank You!
     Hi guys.  So you might be noticing that there is a certain theme to my cards this week.  :O)  Well yes there is.  lol... I had  a friend of mine that asked me if I could make up a few  'Thank You' cards for her to send to her friends and family when she needs to.
    I wanted to come up with some fun ways of using stamps and other things to make them so that she would have a variety on hand.   As you can tell I did use mostly my favorite stamps, but I just had fun and really just enjoyed making them all.
     I don't know about you guys, but every once in a while I will color up a stamp and for whatever reason it just doesn't seem to be working for me at the time, so I put it away with the paper pad that I had in mind to use when I picked out the colors.  I figure that I can always come back to it and perhaps get a chance to put it to good use.  Well, this little Do Si Do Anya  just so happened to be one of those stamps.  I have to say that even though her hair isn't as pretty as I would like it to be it still worked out to be a pretty cute card.  lol... As you can see I even had a great time using the papers in an off set way to add a little wimzy to this card.
     Well,  once again I am tired and I am getting ready to head to bed, so I will talk at you guys later.  Please forgive me for not being around so far this week, but I am hoping to get caught up with everyone later this week.   Until then have a great week and I'll talk at you later.
Hugs, Lisa G

I added the year on the photo to make it look like
your Mom would have done on an old Polaroid.
