Sweet & Simple

You know those times when you just need a batch of cards, like thank you's but your soooo not in card making mode coz your mojo has mooched off on holiday and left you in the lurch..
Well these were made in exactly those circumstances.. So i kept it simple.
I reached for my Tim Holtz stamps, picked out 1 image, stamped it onto gloss card with archival, or was it stazon!!! anyways, i then used my vintage photo distress ink to colour the images, just kinda smooching it on with an ink tool, A smidge of black round the edge, a sentiment and bobs your uncle fannys yours aunt, one {or several} simple yet adorable thank yous.

Found you through Mar... I'm not a stamper (please don't take that the wrong way) but I do alter paper in a good way. I really like these cards. Your use of the image and thank you text just plain work.
