February Stamp Club

Back from vacation and back to stamping. And it's time for stamp club again!

This first card is a thank you card "note card" style. It gives you enough room to write a quick note to someone on just a card front. Easy way to create a bunch of thank you cards to have on hand! With a little 3-d flower in the corner by punch circles and then crinkling them up!

Ink: Melon Mambo

Now, punch art has been all over the place, and is SOOO fun to create little critters out of your punches! This super cute little sheep reminds me of spring and of Easter. He is sitting on a corner bookmark, which would make a great gift for a reader in your life!
