I was gifted this "Thanks" die from our Dies R us team leader Darlene at Christams, wasn't that ever so sweet of her, and it came in very handy when I needed to make some thank you cards for gifts I received.

I cut the sentiment die out of yellow paper and then just colored in the flowers and added the flower stickers to the center

Tutti Designs -- Swirly thanks die
BasicGrey -- Piccadilly paper
Martha Stewart -- Border punch
Flower sitckers (flower centers)

This one the thanks die was cut from pattern paper and I just added the sticker centers to the flowers.

Tutti Designs -- Swirly thanks die
BasicGrey -- Piccadilly paper
Spellbinders -- Majestic Labels 25 die
Hot off the press -- Black Jewel Dazzles

Which do you like more?

The sun is out this morning, YAH!!! and it is already 51 degrees, can't wait for the hubby to get up and go for a walk, soak up that sunshine before more rain tomorrow.

Hope your enjoying a wonderful weekend so far.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

What beautiful cards, Connie! I love the colors and that gorgeous die was a wonderful gift from Darlene! Such thoughtfulness on her part, and the perfect gift to say thank you to her designers! I especially like the paper in your second card and the pretty flowers in your first! hugs, de

Oh these are both awesome Connie and I'm tickled to see how you're using your 'surprise' gift! I guess if I'd have to choose between the two, I'd pick card #1 ... not sure why ... just something speaks to me more with that particular creation! Great job and hope you got out for that walk. Yes, the weather here in Ohio is kinda crazy too for this time of year ... going to 61 today ... WHAT??? January in Ohio? Oh well, I'm not complaining .. I'll take walking in the sunshine over snow blowing the driveway any day! LOL Have a fabulous weekend and thanks for the shout out!!

I love both of your cards Connie, this die is really lovely and I have enjoyed using mine! :-)
It's amazing the different styles we are all coming up with.

What beautiful cards and an awesome gift! I don't know which one I like more. The die stands out nicely in yellow on the first card, but I also love the pretty paper on the second. You have a teensy, delicate pattern on the "thanks" die, too, and I always think that's fun. Enjoy the sunshine!

What a beautiful die! Love how you did a different color on the flowers in the first card!

Connie, what a great die! I love the vines that surround the thanks.

The "Thanks" die is lovely, how sweet of Darlene to gift it to you. Both of these cards are so pretty, Connie.

i think i like the first one just a tad more, but they are both SO beautiful!
i don't know how you do it...(:
i just gave out a thank you card and it was most certainly not this beautiful.
you are so gifted.

be blessed!

A thank you card is even more special if you've made it.
If I had to choose, I would choose the second one, but they are both lovely.

All the best Jan
