Thank-you cards.

Just a quick post tonight. Wow, it has been a hectic week. Today wasn't a good one renovation of our house wise. Am really not pleased with the work the painter is doing, battling to get anything out of the guy who is doing our kitchen cupboards, and discovered that a portion of the house has been incorrectly wired!! So needless to say, I am feeling a little frazzled. We are going through to Newcastle tomorrow morning to pay for our new bed and lounge suite, and to arrange their delivery for next week. We also need to buy a few odds & sods. The rest of the weekend is going to be spent at the house doing the few things we need to do, and moving up the outside plants and garden furniture etc. So roll on move day, so this can all be over with!!

Anyway, these are the cards I created for all the people that gave my boys gifts for their birthdays, 12 in total! They actually came together quite quickly and I enjoyed making them. I coloured in the 12 owls while watching the French Open tennis final. The stamp I used is once again a "Best Rubber Stamps" stamp, no. 708E. This is one of my faves, and I have used it often. I have placed an order for some more cute stamps, this size, so I can't wait to get my hands on them. Have to wait until my birthday though, that's only on the 21st of July!!

Anyway, here are all 12 cards:

And here is a close-up. Super simple, but just what I wanted.

Enjoy your weekend, hope you get some relaxing in, you lucky people you!!

Hi Rene, just wanted to say I love all your cards! I am part of the RSA group but currently living in Dubai since 4 months ago! Keep up the inspiration! Can I add you to my blog page -
Good luck with the house move!

Hi Rene,

Good thing you found the problem with the electrical wiring. Good luck with the move. Here in the USA we say odds and ends not odds and sod. I enjoy learning the little differences in sayings.

I like your simple owl card. How were the birthday parties?
