A few thank you cards...

I wanted to send a few thank you cards for those who were so good to us while we were in California.  This is only a start, but I thought I'd post what I have so far.   I won't say who they're for that way there is still some surprise involved :)  

The first one uses Sparkle Creations Stamps (Swimming Lucy) and Echo Park Summer Days Collection.  I love the bright colors in these papers.  All the cards today I colored with my Copics.  I also used various thank you sets from CTMH.

This next card also uses the Echo Park papers.  The hedgehog is a former Stamp of the Month from CTMH.  This is one of my all time favorite stamp sets, and I keep hoping it will come back in a future idea book!

For the third card I used Sparkle Creations' Cafe Lucy.  I also used   papers and cut the flower with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.   

The last card uses Sparkle Creations' Ukulele Josh. The papers are CTMH Moon Doggie.  I had a hard time finding papers to match the bright green and red I'd already colored the image.   I bought this stamp because it reminds me of my Uncle Chuck, who plays the ukulele, as well as a host of other instruments.  This one is actually going to him and my Aunt Lisa for having us over for a wonderful BBQ.  

This week I'm very busy trying to find a balance between enjoying the last few days of summer break, getting everything done I need to around here (like thank you cards), and getting things prepped for school.         I can't believe I go back to work Friday and school starts next Wednesday!  Where did summer go?
