Firetruck Thank You Cards

To kindly thank all that attended my son's birthday party, I made the cute little Firetruck Thank You cards.  The truck was cut out from my Cricut and I used a white gel pen on black cardstock for the road.  I stamped with Sunny Yellow ink for the back and in Black ink stamped "Thanks".  Of course, I had to write the number "2" on the Firetruck for the age. 

Inside, I let my toddler write (really was a scribble) his appreciation to each person.  Everyone loved that part of the card :)  Best idea.


One Fine Day Layout

Using some of the newest CTMH colors (Slate, Whisper, Ruby, Champagne, and Cashmere) I put this layout together from the pattern found in the Make It from Your Heart that can be purchased from CTMH. 

I used White Daisy as my cardstock and added the other colors in varies shapes.  (1) The using Slate ink, I random stamped the small flower image (C1511 My Acrylix Love Blooms) on both 2" x 2" Whisper cardstock squares.  (2) Then Stamped a bracket shape on the cut White Daisy bracket that was cut from my Cricut.  (3) I colored the Irresistibles (Z1779 Houndstooth Alphabet) letters to spell "One Fine Day".  (4) To create a scalloped edge on both the Ruby cardstock, I used the corner rounder (Z578).  (5) By cutting a "V" on the Ruby cardstock and Champagne cardstock pieces, this created a ribbon edge finish.  (6) The of course, I sponged all cardstock with Slate ink.

A great way to only use 2 photos (3"x 4" and 4"x 6"). I had these two laying around from my son's first snow day. In my opinion, that was a Fine Day :) Or at least any day it snows is a fine day in my book!
