Thank You, Thank You!!!!

We had a fundraising event at my work on Saturday where we were raising money for The Rainbow Trust, we had some great donations from local businesses and raised just under £500 for the charity so I set to work making some Thank You cards to send to the businesses and here they are :-
This first one was inspired by the fabulous cards on Sarita's blog, the papers used were bought from My Grafico which I find has so much choice in digital papers that I'm often there for hours.
The label was cut out on my Silhouette machine and the stamped sentiment is from a set of Anna Griffin samps that I bought from QVC a couple of weeks ago. I found this card was really easy to make and whenever I need to make cards in bulk this is definately going to be a favourite.
My next card was inspired by this lovely card I received from Liz and the girls at Pink Petticoat, I was lucky enough to win a pack of Vintage Rose papers when I took part in their blog hop and along with my prize came this lovely card.....

I loved it so much it inspired me to make something very similar and again it was very quick to make so great when you have to make a lot of cards. The papers are from the Vintage Rose collection at Pink Petticoat and the stamped sentiment is by Anna Griffin as per the previous card. I punched the papers using my Fiskars Apron Lace punch and here it is.....

Thanks for looking, I hope you like them.
