Thank You Cards...

Hey there!  Hard to believe that March is almost over and we've had little sign of spring here, at least outdoors.  We're still having the occasional flurry filled morning and temps are too frosty for flip-flops yet.  However, my cards and projects have been bursting with flowers, butterflies and spring colors!  Today, I have a couple of "thank you" cards to share...

This first card is a mix of Bo Bunny collections - including Gabrielle, Vicki B. and Ad Lib collections.


 I border punched strips of paper and then pleated them to create the flower.

Bo Bunny: Gabrielle, Vicki B. and Ad Lib pattern paper; Embellishments from Gabrielle and Vicki B.

Fiskars: Dot to Dot 3-in-1 Corner Squeeze Punch; Threading Water Border Punch; Scalloped Sentiment Border Punch; Seal of Approval Squeeze Punches; Round 'n Round Squeeze Punches; Broken Square Lever Punch; Ultra ShapeXpress Tool; Circle Shape Template and Scallop Paper Edgers

Glue Arts Adhesives: U-Cut-It Foam and Perma Tac for the Glue Glider Pro
Sizzix: Flowers, Branches and Leaves Set

My second card is from the Glue Arts' Blog where we're featuring My Little Shoebox this month.  I received the one of their new lines called Home Tweet Home - fun papers with lots of bright, cheery colors and the cutest designs.

"Thank You"

I used the Ultra ShapeXpress Tool to cut out the flowers from the "Place to Nest" pattern paper and then layered the flowers with Glue Arts U-Cut-It Foam Adhesive.

Glue Arts Adhesives: U-Cut-It Foam and Perma Tac for the Glue Glider Pro
My Little Shoebox: Home Tweet Home pattern paper and Apple Alpha Stickers
Fiskars: Ultra ShapeXpress Tool; Circle Shape Template; Butterfly Lever Punch and Apron Lace Border Punch

That's it for today...thanks for stopping and Happy Monday!   :)
