A Thank you card to share

Last night I started making a few thank you cards, as I really want to send some off to some beautiful people. I wanted to show them to you. And yes, everything is from my stash, nothing new was purchased here. In fact I used an old technique with clear buttons and Hero Arts spot stamps I bought ages ago, and do you think I used it? Nooooooo..... So, I took the wrapper off and used it.

Anyway, here is my card
At first I made one design, but since I wanted to make a few cards, I needed more background paper, however I didn't have anymore of his pretty paper, so I had to use a different one, so here is the result.
And if you would like to know how I made the buttons, here is the picture of what I used to make it
Supplies used to make these pretty cards:

Cardstock: Memories (really old stuff, but I ran out of my SU white CS)
Patterned papers: Sassafrass, My Minds Eye Tres Jolie and Magnolia
Cuttlebug folder: Script
Stamps: Hero Arts Conversation Dots and Cat's Life Press (sentiments)
Punch: Martha Stewart
Misc.: Clear buttons (Autumns Leaves, I believe), ribbons, thread by MM

Hope you like these, I made 8 of them, so I can send my love on it's way, and certainly hope the recipients will like them, too.

I am going to the gym for a little work out, but I am still going to work an a few more cards, so I will be back, so if you'd like to see some more cards of mine, don't forget to check back.

Have a fabulous Saturday!

Those cards are beautiful and I am sure the recipients will be over the moon with them. How could they not be with the all the love put into them - the handcut flower is divine
