Simple Thanks

I have a set of (very) simple thank you cards to show today...


They're a variation on a theme...just with the squares placed in different positions...


A couple in portrait, and a couple in landscape...


The cards are A6 sized...not too much space to have to fill! lol...the papers are Stampin' Up! (a prize from Lady LIM Mandi from a challenge she sponsored on Totally Papercrafts a while back), and the sentiment stamp is from the 'Sending Sunshine' set by Simon Says Stamp. I lightly inked around the edges of the papers with 'Old Paper' Distress Ink, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen.

Challenges for these cards:
