The background reminded me a little of a early-morning lake scene...
... which prompted the stamping of the bird taking off into the sky. I liked the bird against the background so much I made a similar card with a whole flock of them!
Actually I prefer this one! The bird is a very useful little stamp from the Sale-a-bration freebie Elementary Elegance while the 'Thanks' in the first card is from another Sale-a-bration set, Outlined Occasions. The Sale-a-bration promotion will end at the end of this week so if you're keen to add these fabulous sets to your collection, do contact me as soon as possible!

I rather liked these cards until I showed my teenaged daughter and she burst out laughing! When I asked her what was wrong, she said she was amused that the dramatic birds taking off over the lake should have been accompanied by a sentiment like 'Hello'! What next? she asked me - a raging inferno with 'Let's get together for coffee'! Hmmm, perhaps she has a point!
Thanks for looking anyway. See you tomorrow!
