Hello – thanks for dropping by Caro’s Pretty Things!

I have been very lucky to have many people in my life I need to say thank you to recently.  So I sat down the other day to make a few thank you cards.   I wanted to do something a little out of my comfort zone and try and make some cards that would convey a little of how grateful I am to the recipients.

I used the largest image from the Apothecary Art stamp set cut out with my Labels framelits, and my embossing powders with VersaMark ink to make the stamped images really ‘pop’ off the page.

Here are the cards, I hope you enjoy.
