Thanks a bunch - AFSS22 & Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 22

At work on Monday one of the community volunteer groups brought in newborn kits for the office. These are so appreciated, as some of the young women, to whom we provide services, have nothing for their babies. After the volunteer left, my boss called out: Margaret, I need to commission 2 cards. One for the church ladies and one for a Girl Scout who is also collecting materials for our office to distribute to families with newborns.

This is card #1 for the church ladies (as I keep calling 'em in my brain.) I knew that I wanted to participate in MaryJo's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge, as well as Allison's Suggestive Sunday challenge. Allison's challenge was especially appropriate for this card: stamped flowers. What could be more nicer on a thank you card for the church ladies than flowers?

I substituted a square sentiment box at the bottom of the card front, instead of MaryJo's oval because I don't have an oval punch. (Someday Santa will bring me some Nesties?)

I stamped the flower images on 2 scraps of Basic Grey Blush paper and the stems on Basic Grey Two Scoops paper. All of the card base materials is BG Two Scoops.

This was a very easy card to put together. Thanks to Allison & MaryJo for their help in creating this thank you card.

Material: cardbase: Die Cuts with a View; designer papers: Basic Grey; stamps: Autumn Leaves; ink: Colorbox; adhesive: Pioneer mounting tape & Pop-dots; pen: American Crafts.

Thanks for looking.
