Thank You CDS Style

Happy Monday my dear friends!!

My little one is home sick and battling a horrific stomach flu - we've been up all night together and I'm whisking away to write up this short but sweet post so forgive me if I'm not as chatty as I normally am.

A neighbor asked me if I would make her some Thank You cards as she just came home from the hospital, and wanted to thank some of her family and friends for all that they did while she was in.   Immediately I thought of this beautiful image and sentiment from Clear Dollar Stamps, and of course, my neighbor loved it!

 Both the image and sentiment are from the Jargon Mix Outlines digital set which you can find in the CDS store by clicking here.  This little beauty was colored with my trusty Copics, but you can also find the same set, pre-colored, that includes not only the images and sentiments but some cute digital papers, too!  This adorable digital paper that  I used on my creation came from that pre-colored set, which you can find by clicking here.

It's time to go back to nursing my little one.  I hope you all have a wonderful day ahead of you!!
