Thank You Cards

When my husband Ed was first diagnosed with cancer back in May I told my girlfriend I needed to create some thank you cards to have on hand because people were doing things for us on a daily basis.  She was so sweet and made me a stack of cards.  Fortunately I ran out of them quickly because people are so generous.  So recently I began making some of my own.  I was going to use one of the one sheet wonders but really just wanted a bunch of the same cards but maybe using different patterned paper.  I wanted something easy that I could do while sitting in the car or in my chair while watching my boys at football practice.  I was able to find these gold shimmery card packs (of 20) for $1.00 at Michael's on clearance.  I also bought the envelopes to match for $1.00.  I could not pass those up.  So I just used some sold card stock and patterned card stock that I had on hand to make a few varieties.  I also bought a stamp set a few months ago (the same one my girlfriend used on the set she made me) because I wanted to be able to use punches so again I don't need my Cricut, but can instead punch the circles and stamp where I am.  This makes it easy to craft at football, while I am with my husband at chemo, etc.  Here are the cards I have made (and mailed-I need to get started on some more) so far.

I am not usually a fan of "crazy" patterned papers but loved the colorful animal print and zebra print and think they turned out cute.  I know the cards are no where near as much as people have done for Ed and I but I hope they let them know how thankful we are for all they have done for us.  Well, off to make more cards :)

Thanks for stopping by, have a crafty day.
