The Paper Players have a Clean-and-Simple Challenge (PP496) this week that looks like a nice challenge...  who doesn't need a thank you card?  I need a few myself to send.  


#PP496 CAS Challenge inspiration photo


There's nothing like a token souvenir along a boardwalk so you can take it home to the neighbor who's watching your dog while you're on holiday.  Only thing is with this #socialdistance world that we live in, it will be awhile before this #bettersafethansorry family ventures to the boardwalks.  Thus my card for today comes from a similar inspiration along my personal "boardwalk" that I enjoy every day - my walk along the bike trail with my little buddy!  We had an early morning rain earlier this week and my eyes were drawn to the wild flowers amongst the trail... more so than usual as there was an amazing light show occurring...

Inspiration for my CAS thank you card | Nature's INKspirations by Angie McKenzie

Nothing like lingering raindrops on Queen's Lace to give you inspiration, right?!

Multiple layers of the Many Medallions die cut were used (cut with Adhesive Sheets as a trim saver!) to create the glistening "L" shaped border around the monotone stamped image of the Queen Anne's Lace on the Soft Sea Foam panel.  The Field Journal sentiment was stamped in Soft Sea Foam onto a scrap piece of Whisper White and simply trimmed with snips.


Stamping the inside with the image and a thoughtful sentiment makes it so much nicer to handwrite a special note to that special someone that you need to thank.  And, of course, stamping the envelope is an added bonus before cleaning the stamps.

Yes, I love these new Many Medallion Dies as I'm sure you will to if you don't already have them!  They are definitely my most used dies at the moment for the Stained Glass Technique that I so enjoy!  This simple to make thank you card will definitely come in handy for someone special like our neighbor who shared fresh lettuce from her garden with us yesterday!  I hope this inspires you to create some special, simple thank you cards this summer.  And don't forget to check out the Paper Players challenges whenever you get the chance...  they are definitely worth checking out.

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world!
Have a blessed day!
