Thank You Series #1

Hello and Happy Tuesday everyone! I really hope your
week is off to a great start! Mine is going pretty good so
far! I'm looking forward to the school Fall Break so I can
get started on some Christmas cards! We shall see if I get
anything done! :o) I've even designed some tags I'd like
to get done! Can't wait to get started!  I've made another 
Simple project for today, because my MIL asked me to make
her some "Thank You" Cards! Don't worry... there are only
6 cards for this series! So I'll show 2 today, tomorrow and Thursday!
It's like a bonus! 2 cards a day! How often do I do that?
Hardly EVER! I know! Right! LOL  :o)

First off... there is nooo Cricut involved in any of the cards
I made this week for my MIL! I went DIGITAL  again!
I hope you guys don't mind... But I do love my Digital Program
and I've been seeing so many blogs giving away a free digital
Program that I thought I would share with you some of the things
you can do with a digital program! Of course my program is
from Stampin' Up! And it makes creating Quick & Easy
when it needs to be! But they are ALL that way!

I have some digital templates in my program so I took
advantage of using them to create quick simple cards...
With a Digital Program you can alter anything
which I LOVE! This design had snowflakes and
some mittens and a winter sentiment.... then I changed
it to butterflies, thank yous and printed each piece out
to make it more traditional! Everything is layered instead of just
1 flat design because I still LOVE my traditional ways but
in a more modern digital age! :o) I used some staples and
a little bling to make this card! :o)
This is the color Combo : Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red,
Chocolate Chip, River Rock, White

 I altered this one too with a digital template!
All Digital programs offer lots of templates or you
can design your own... Which I like both so it makes
it fun and easy either way you do it! :o)
I printed out the "Kind Thanks" with the Soft Suede
Color Card stock, then I printed out the colored
circles on the white Card stock so they can be layered..
Then I added 2 different colored ribbons and some bling...
And there you have a quick, simple and yet traditional
looking thank you card! :o) This one is suppose to be a
5x7 card.... but I altered it to fit a standard A2 size card!
The colors I used for this card are: Taken with Teal, Apricot Appeal,
Soft Suede, Old Olive, White

Well I hope you guys like my cards... I'll be back tomorrow
with 2 more and an explanation on how I created them!
Thanks soooo much for stopping by! Have an AWESOME DAY!!

P.S.- If you have any questions about my digital program from
Stampin' Up or another type please let me know and maybe
I can help you out or explain something you may not know or
let me know something I may not have known! :o)

These are great Theresa! Love the idea of going digital. I've got a question for you: Have you figured out approximately how many cards you can print before having to change ink cartridges? Thanks!
