Thank You Cards Using CTMH Quatrefoil Embossing Folder and Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

Hello friends.  I appreciate all of you who take time to read my blog.  I am very happy to be part of this wonderful Blogland.  I have made many friends; met a lot of people online and a few in person; along my journey of creativity.  My blog followers and all the friends I have made are very important to me.  Thank you for the honor of knowing so many wonderful people.

I created these Thank you cards for my customers months ago; but haven't had the time to post them.  It just seems like everyday life gets in the way.  LOL!  I would rather be creating more cards than posting them.  But; I realize that I get my creative ideas from reading and looking at all of your creations.  This encourages me to share my creations in Blogland; where there is no judgment on what we create.  I feel only love and loving compliments from all of you.  Thanks for being part of my world.

I didn't create the inside for these cards; as I write a handwritten note to my customers and leave these blank so that they can pass them on to someone else.  I love that philosophy of passing something on to someone else.  If I am not using something; even a gift from someone; then it would be better to give it to someone else; than to keep it laying on a shelf somewhere in my home.  

Card One    

Card Two

Card Three

Card Four

Supplies used to create these cards:

Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

Cardstock -  CTMH White Daisy, Cotton Candy, Blush and Indian Corn Blue, I think
Cards 1 - 3 Paper - Ivy Lane (retired)
Card 4 Paper - Ariana (retired)
Embossing Folder - CTMH Quatrefoil 5 x 7 (Z1926)
Ribbon- Offray I think
Sentiments - CTMH Stamp sets (Sorry - not sure which ones)

I created these without writing down what I used; so I apologize.  I can identify most of the items; but not the stamp sets.   I think the cardstock colors are accurate; but I gave the cards away; so nothing is for sure.  LOL!

  20. Beautiful thank you creations Gloria and I totally agree with you re keeping the cards blank on the inside when gifting. I tend to also follow the same philosophy so that the cards can be passed onto someone else. Wishing you and your loved ones a blessed festive season and a 2015 filled with tons of love and joy.
