Feeling Grateful

I actually had some free time to sit at my desk uninterrupted last night and in that time got three...yes, you heard right, THREE cards done.  Well, almost three.  Still need to put a sentiment on the last one, but for all intents and purposes it's done!

Both these cards were made with Close to My Heart Stamps.  The first card uses the Always Grateful stamp set and features some first and second generation stamping.  For those who don't know what that means, when you ink your stamp and then stamp on your paper, that's first generation.  If you then stamp again, without re-inking, the faded image you get is second generation. The fading makes the trees appear they are at a distance from the more vibrantly stamped trees in the foreground.  Love how this one turned out!

My second card also features stamps from Close to My Heart.  This time I used the Feathers stamp set.  I took three of the images and three colors of ink and randomly stamp them on white cardstock, creating a fun background, which I made the focal point of this card.  A simple stamped sentiment from the Always Grateful stamp set and it's done.  

I am feeling very thankful that I had time to create!  I hope I find more time again soon!!
