Heartfelt Thanks

I'm so excited that I'll get to see my sister, brother-in-law, and gorgeous niece again at Easter. They'll be coming up from the good ol' U.S.A. for the long weekend and, as usual, my sister will be carting up a bunch of stuff that I can't get here in Canada. How sweet!! To thank her, I told her I would like to make her a bunch of cards since she uses tons of them. I asked her what types would be most handy and she said thank you cards and birthday cards. So these are the first three thank you cards I made her. I'm not sure if I'll make more like this or try a different style. I must've been in my groove because I didn't even have to think to make these and they were so easy! However, I had a hard time making the centre of the bows flat but I think they turned out like roses so maybe they don't look so shabby after all. LOL Last but not least, the sentiment is a Verve stamp that I received when I placed my last order. I didn't expect a freebie at all so it made me feel very special. Not only is this sentiment gorgeous, it's perfect. Thanks so much, Julee!
