These are the handmade note cards I made that went into the tins I created (look at previous post same day). I stuck mainly with "thanks" and "happy Birthday" since I knew those get used the most on a daily basis. I left the inside of the cards blank( all cards are from Micheal's recollections). The "cupcakes" and "thanks a latte" I made using my Cricut Imagine. The stamps were colored with copic markers using GinaK heavy weight white cardstock. It is great for copic marker coloring since it is a 120lb weight. The stickers are various ones that I have had for several years. Since I bought my Cricut and I am really into stamps, I don't use or buy stickers anymore. So I have a large collection that I am trying to use in my projects. The labels I made with my Gypsy cut out on the Imagine. They are stock shapes that come with the Imagine. Border punch is from Fiskars. I love using that one because it is easy to use. The stamps "happy birthday, thanks and thank you"are from "Stamps of Life". I hope my Mom and Mother-in-law like them. I took a week to make 40 cards. The envelopes I bought from Office Depot" simple A2 envelope.
