Set of Notecards

Hi to my blogging friends.
A new week and month, how good can it get for a clean slate.
Today I have a set of notecards to show. I made these for a swap in one of my groups, and we had to use soft colours, small animals like, bunnies, cats, mice etc.We also had to make a holder for the cards. So this is my contribution, had a bit of difficulty with the photo, but I am sure you can see them.
I am entering these into a few challenges:
Tuesday Throwdown... a matching set.
Simply Create ...Favourite animal... I do love little hedgehogs,
Charisma Cards 4 legged animal.



There are 6 notecards, 2 in each colour, pink, green and yellow and a small packet to hold them with their matching envelopes. These are winging their way at present to another continent.

Here is what I used:
Paper .. coloured cardstock, Gingham DP was all printed on the computer, in shades to match the cardstock.
Images .. A selection of Penny Black, House Mouse and from a local company, coloured with Distress ink pads.
Embelishments... Butterflies cut with Marianne design dies and Nellie Snellen punches.
Finished off with a pearl
On the inside I stamped a few small butterflies, bees etc.
The small packet is a design from Kitty's Craft, using my scorpal. I changed the size somewhat for the cards to fit in snuggly. Again a gingham paper, stamped image and a flower from Crealies designs, finished off with a lace edging, a bow and a ribbon handle.
Enjoy the rest of the week and see you again soon.
