Creating a Storm

My best friend Julie has once again asked me to make some thank you cards for her. She is a school teacher and often receives little gifts from her students. She likes to give thank you cards when she does.

Julie asked me to make some small cards and she picked Soft Sky cardstock. Her only request was that I use the hedgehog from the Fun and Fast Notes set. I made 18 of them and added some chocolate chip taffeta ribbon. For the other cards, I just picked some of my favourite stamp sets- Petal Prints, STem Silhouettes (retired), Bud Basics, In the Spotlight (Level 2 Hostess) and Just Like You (gift from the US). I stuck with the Soft Sky and Chocolate Chip colour scheme for all of them.I have made 50 of them in total.

Julie then asked me to make some regular sized cards. She absolutely loves the Berry Bliss DSP so this was the basis for my cards. Most of the cards, I just used the designer paper and a thank you stamp. I did use the poppy from the In the Spotlight hostess set. I have 32 of these in total.

I had lots of fun making these cards and I am sure that Julie will love them all!
