Thank you notes

Since I got home from the hospital last month, I have had several friends bring dinners, etc. over for me and my husband. I usually send out the larger cards I make, but I thought I would actually make some smaller ones to have on hand. I thought I was doing something that would be fairly easy and not take much time, but boy was I wrong.

The bird in the tree was cut from Cindy Loo, as was the background and the sentiment for it. I used two different color combinations; one with green, orange and brown and one with pink, orange and brown. The ones with the green, are my favorite, because the striped paper below the green gradiate, whereas the one on the pink card is the same on each one. I used a MS punch and the embossing folder was by Cuttlebug.

Even though they took a while to make, I now have it on my DS, so I can cut more as I need them. I hope you enjoyed stopping by and that you will leave me a comment.
I'm entering these cards in the following challenges:
CES Challenges - anything but a Christmas card
The Crafty Pad - anything
