Stamp Simply Clean & Simple Thank YOU!

Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply challenge this week is to create a clean and simple Thank YOU! Perfect timing to convey thanks for all those holiday goodies! I chose to go REALLY simple, given the hustle and bustle of the week, I just did not get much stamping done! So, I started out with a package of note cards and envies from Michaels, from the dollar bin. Eight in the pack! The cards are thick and have somewhat of a gloss finish to them, so I knew I would add my sentiment on other cardstock then adhere to the face of the card.
What better way to add "Thank You" to your creation or in this case to my package of note cards. than to reach for a favorite of mine, JustRite Brayton font. Using StazOn black ink, I stamped my image and punched with a oval SU punch.
And here is a pic of the note cards turned Thank YOU cards! I added varied sizes of adhesive pearls for interest. I LOVE how simple and clean these look! And talk about easy...that's what I still need about now! lol Have to get busy and complete a few more gifts for my hubby's family Christmas gathering. Coffee cake just came out of the oven, the french toast egg dishes done! Phew!

Love red, white and black -- always striking. I like these notes and how you added the thank you on them. The panel's design has an Asian feel to it -- very lovely!
