Thank you CASE

Last week I shared a gift set I made for someone who had just had surgery. When I dropped off the gift set and a meal for her family, she asked if I would make some thank you cards for the ladies who have been making her family meals. I said yes of course. I went home that day and made two for her. Both ideas I got from SCS. When the church bazaar is over I will make her some more.
The first card I CASED from willosmoma. I liked the layout and color scheme she used. I did decide to color my tree differently. Her coloring was beautiful, but I didn't have that kind of time or talent in coloring. I colored mine with a dauber and some classic inks. Though it is hard to see in this photo, I did steal her punched edges on the pattern strip. To make my holes quickly I ran it through the sewing machine without any thread. I didn't put a sentiment on it. If she has enough cards, I thought this one would be perfect to save for any occassion.
The second card I adapted from mommyoftwo. Again I used the layout. I changed the stamp set this time and the colors. I like the verses you get with the "Define Your Life" stamp set. The "kindness" definition worked great for this card. The pom flower is stamped several times without reinking the stamp to give the faded look. Using a sponge I applyed the Groovy Guava onto the white areas. I also added the silver cord to tie the top and bottom of the image panel together.

I adore this card. The colors and layout are gorgeous. In fact, I love your stuff in general! However, the pics are a bit hard to see. At least on my monitor they are not as clear as I need them to be to drool over them!! LOL.
