Thoughtfulness for CAS80

This week's Clean and Simple (CAS80) for Splitcoaststampers is to use THIS card as a sketch inspiration. It was perfect for giving me a jump start on a bunch of Thank You cards that I need to get out to people who have been so sweet to my family regarding the celebration of our new son Justin. I didn't change much from the original card, so not only is it a CAS card, but I guess that makes it a CASE (copy and "steal/share" everything) as well.

The first two cards I went with an earthy feel using Kraft/Crumb Cake with Always Artichoke. I matched it with some paper featuring a fern design and then added the twine for my sole embellishment. The third card is just a simple design using a combo of Kraft/Crumb Cake with Tempting Turquoise. All these cards feature one of the stamps from the set Everyday Thanks by Paper Makeup Stamps, my go-to set for any Thank You cards.
