Thank You Cards Using CTMH Stamps

Hi there all you fabulous crafters and readers!  I hope everyone is staying warm.  We even have cold weather here in Southern CA.  It has been getting down in the low 30's at night and 50's - 60's in the daytime.  I know that doesn't seem cold for most of you out there; but for us - it is cold!  LOL!  You have to remember when you move to a warmer climate; your body gets acclimated to in a year or two and then you feel cold when it gets in the 60's.

I created these Thank you cards over a month ago.  It was my first time experimenting with just using stamps and cardstock.  I thought they turned out pretty good; especially for a beginner.  I just created another 4 cards with just stamps and cardstock; which I think turned out even better.  I will post those sometime soon; I hope.
