Riveting Thank You's!



I finally finished my thank yous!
The other day while on the forums over at SCS i saw this thread about Anna Griffin stamps. Someone was inquiring if anyone had ever used them and if they liked them. I saw some interesting responses, one person said that she disliked them so much that they were going into the trash! I got all frantic, because i knew that i had a set that i purchased off ebay and had never used it. Did i need to trash it? Well i'm so glad that i didn't. I inked up the tree stamp and it held the ink and made a lovely image. There is such beautiful detail in the tree itself...i was very impressed. These lovely trees turned into my lovely thank you notes! LOL!
The Janome still had the rust thread in it from my dh birthday card so i stitched away and then stitched some more.
I used my hodgepodge, which never seems to get used...i never seem to know what to do with it! LOL!
The brushed copper paper from SU gave it the finishing touch that i was looking for!
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
