CAS17 Inspiration Challenge

What a GREAT challenge! Inspired by Lands End beach towels and totes.

Here's my first card, based on this towel. I'd love to chatter about it, but it's really quite simple. And I LOVE IT!!!!

Inside, it says, "I'm here for you" from PTI's Floral Frenzy set. Let's shout out how wonderful the sentiments in that set are. Yeah!

And here is an orange card, inspired by the polka dot towel. Because orange is a happy color, and I'm feelin' much more orange than blue.

The positive and negative dot stamps are from Hero Arts. I punched them out with a 3/4-inch square punch.

A girl can never have too many thank you cards on hand, don't you think?

Thanks for looking, and, as always, comments are very much appreciated!

Don't forget to comment on THIS POST before tomorrow night at 11:48 Eastern DST for a chance to win a little blog candy. One comment per person, please.

Happy Monday!

  3. So simple but so perfect! I need to do more with small square punches like that--I love the look.

    By the way, do you have a good online source for Hero Arts stamps?
