Dainty Thoughts - 1 design, 3 cards

For the past few months, I just haven't been 'in the mood' to stamp very often. So it was really nice to spend the day on Saturday at a crop with a good friend and fellow CTMH consultant. We both we able to accomplish quite a bit, so I finally have some stamping projects to share with you this week.

The first cards that I made on Saturday are very simple, but the simplicity of them is what I really like. And don't know why, but the brackets around the sentiment are just delightful and make me smile. These three cards are identical except for the colors used. It's fun to make the same card in different colors, and I always find that I pick out a favorite color for the card. My favorite for this card is the Tulip color.

Also really like the Dutch Blue - which is a color that I do not seem to use very often.

Finally, the same design using Creme Brulee.

The stamp sets used are Dainty Thoughts and Thank You, both from Close To My Heart. Also, Garden Green ink was used for the flower stems and sentiment on all three cards.

A big portion of my day was spent creating three cards for a contest to be held at the Close to My Heart Leadership conference next month. It was quite a challenge to follow the rules of the contest, and I am really pleased with what I came up with. Can't share them with you yet, but I promise to share after the conference.
