A Happy Thanks!

Good Morning, Samantha here! Today I have a very cute card to share with you. I have created a card that is somewhat of a throwback hybrid. Going through my stash of Lawn Fawn products, I stumbled across my very first "critters" stamp set. It is always fun to play with stamps that you haven't used in a while. I created a simple scene with the "Critters in the 'burbs" stamp set, and paired it with a bold sentiment using the "Scripty Thanks" die cut.

Lawn Fawn Supplies:
Beachside Petite Paper Pack
Pink Lemonade Petite Paper Pack
Critters in the 'burbs
Scripty Thanks
Spring Showers

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you have a wonderful day!
