Thank You Cards

My sister-in-law asked me to make her a set of monogramed cards which she could use for thank you notes.  She picked a design that I had previously done and we added the monogram.  Purple is one of her favorite colors (mine, too!).  I made her a set of 6 in this pattern and then another set using a different color scheme.
I used Home Decor for the scroll work and Lyrical Letters for the monogram  Since there is not a shadow feature on LL, I just cut the letters in two colors and off-set them. The paper is from the DCWV Latte stack. This is the first time I've used a Pearl Pen.  Oooooh, I think I love it!!!

My SIL also chose a thank you card from my stash that she wants to send to a sweet lady who gave us a pattern and instructions for an adorable "chemo" scarf/hat.  This was my first welded shape card.  The card base is George, the hummingbird and flowers are from Pagoda (I think).  I used Perfect Pearls for accents - can't say I'm a real fan of using them, but I do like the effect on this card.

I hope you're having a great week.
Hugs and Happy Crafting,

They are beautiful. I love Perfect Pearls, but just don't think to use it much. Gives a project a very pretty shimmer.
