DT Post - Phindy's Place Friday Challenge#24 - Give Thanks

Good Morning and welcome to Friday and to this week's Phindy's Place Challenge.   This week's Challenge is something I love about making my own cards - saying Thank You with a card.  It's easy to email or phone to thank someone after having a meal with them or after they have helped out.  But if you give them a card that is so much more special!  I hope you'll join us and use Phindy's images to  make a card and stock up your Thank You card stash.

I've chosen to make 3 cards which are all fairly quick and easy, I'm struggling a bit to get going on anything crafty, just hope my mojo comes back after I get the next few days out of the way.  The images I've used are called Lil' Garden Gems, you can buy them here.   They are designed to be used small scale and they colour in moments, thanks to the shading that is already there.  In August I took a stall at a local fete and tried selling my cards and it was interesting that every single card made with this set sold out...

First card uses Basic Grey Green at Heart papers, 2 Martha Stewart punches and computer generated sentiment:

Second card has  Papermania Henbury Lane DP, a ribbon and a charm of a garden trowel (doesn't show up too well in the photo but that's what it is!).  Sentiment is Elusive Images.
Final card uses 2 Nestability shapes, some more masculine tape instead of ribbon and a Personal Impressions sentiment.

 I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
A Spoonful of Sugar - Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz - Anything Goes
Creative Inspirations - 2 or more stamped images
