Thank You Cards Using CTMH Penelope Paper and Cricut Art Philosophy

Hello friends. I hope everyone is taking time to craft.  I finally found time to create some Thank you cards for my customers.  I didn't know how hard it would be to create regular cards using clear stamps; after creating so many with digis.  It took me several days to come up with an idea for them.  LOL!

CTMH has thin dies to match some of their stamp sets and this is one of the 4 die stamps currently available.  I fell in love with these as soon as I saw them.  They are very versatile and can be used for any occasion.  I also used one of our newest papers, CTMH Penelope; which I also love.  I hope you enjoy them.  I created the same card; but with different colored little chicks.
