Lovely warm spring, this time of year is just so inspiring. It brings out more creativity. I am just obsessed with yellow right now. For some reason it is saying spring is here!! It seems the right time to be grateful for many things.
Do you know what those important two little words are? Thank you. I think it is so important to let people know that they are appreciated. Periodically, I’ll get some little gifts for the lovely ladies who work with me, keep me on time, help me with all sorts of things, put up with my irritation with certain things, and just generally hold the office together. My boss gets one too, for without her I wouldn’t have a job. So, I have a lot to be grateful for with these ladies, and I like saying Thank You! I wanted to do some cards to go with a little gift for the office staff. I started with yellow cardstock, and found a couple of bird stamps. I used a grass green ink.
I just had to use some of the handmade papers that I won in a drawing from Kathy at Kathy In Ozarks. She ordered me to use them and not just hide them away. So, I used my deckle edge tearing edge and tore some strips so this lovely handmade paper would go farther.
That bottom corner needed something, so I used a little tiny heart.
Some fern green ribbon to add a bit of movement.
A sweet pansy stamped on a flower cut out in green will add some interest.
Voila, all put together!
Close ups of the cards, each is a bit different in placement of the papers and ribbons, and which bird stamp was used.
They were given with these cute little daisy pots, with growing medium and seeds.
These didn’t cost much. But the value in giving them is in the sentiment of gratitude. I think it is fun to see people’s faces when they get an unexpected gift. It is truly the thought that counts, just to say Thank You for all you do.
Which one do you like best?
