A Simple Thank You Card

Hello there, sunshine!! How are you doing today? I hope all is well:o) Today, I want to share a simple, little thank you card. When my buddy Carmen sent me these adorable Hero Arts stamps on my birthday...I knew exactly what I wanted to create with them...a Domo Arigato (aka: thank you very much) card.  It shames me to say, but I got this giftie over a year ago and this is the first time it has seen ink...hanging my head in shame:o(  There are three wonderful stamps in this set, and my plan is to create a few sets of "Domo Arigato" cards with these cuties. Since this is a simple card, I won't bore you with all the details about what I did...I know you are too busy to for that. All I can say is I had a great deal of fun whipping this together:) It is always nice to be able to make a card you like and it hardly took any time at all to create...especially when you don't have much time to play. 

Above is a pic of the card's interior. I don't know why, but I can never leave the inside blank...I am compelled to decorate it. Yup...I have issues:o} Of course those of you who know me...ahem...Heather and have known this for quite some time;o) Hahaha! Okay...enough of my blah, blah, blah. I did want to mention all the wonderful challenge blogs that inspired me to create this card:
  • Forgotten Scraps - Their theme is Spring or Flowers...I think this card is springy, and it has flowers:)
  • Color Dare - Their color palette is: Perfect Plum, Always Artichoke and a Neutral of your card has more plum, but there is green in the patterned paper and my neutral choice was white.
  • Incy Wincy Designs - They want you to use Punches or Dies on your creations...I used Nesties and a Marvy oval punch (for the sentiment).
A HUGE THANK YOU to all the challenge coordinators and design team members for their weekly inspiration and for keeping our mojo alive:o)

Have a spectacular day everyone, and a HUGE THANKS to YOU too for dropping by!!!!
