Saying Thank You!

The mid-week throwdown over at the S&S blog is to create a thank-you card. I pulled out a pack of retired Parisian Breeze paper and made 3 cards for the challenge. They're simple to make, go together quickly, and I think they look pretty nice. These were already sent in my last box of OWH cards, along with the Christmas cards - since the deadline for the shippers to receive them is October 31st.
This card was made with another adorable K'nK designs digi image I received recently, so I made a card for my next OWH box. For this one I used a circle punched with a Fiskars punch, along with the SU! tag punches. The sentiment is by K'nK. The OWH benefit fundraiser being sponsored by K'nK designs continues through the weekend with a lot of cute digi images being offered as a bundle, or separately. The money that you spend for these digis is going to be donated to OWH to help cover the cost of shipping Christmas cards to our troops serving overseas. The estimated cost will be $13,000, so every little bit helps. If you aren't a card maker and want to donate to help this great organization, you can donate through PayPal right here at the OWH website.
That's it for me today, so thanks for stopping by and have a great Wednesday!

Fab thank you cards and I love your cute doggies. Good job making the pretty circle with your Fiskars punch. I did that once upon a time with a border punch. I really liked it but never tried it again.
