I have several cards to show you today!  My husband and I recently returned from a kid-free (Yes, I said KID-FREE!) cruise to the Eastern Caribbean, and I made a few cards to use as thank-you cards for different members of our cruise staff.





For the top three cards, I used two different stamp sets from There She Goes Clear Stamps, a company I LOVE that is unfortunately out of business now.  The fourth card uses the digital image "Stella and Charlie" from Oddball Art Co. and was a Robyn's Fetish Challenge Design Team card I made back in January.  I held on to it for a while, but I took it on the cruise with us and gave it to our head server in the dining room, Chutima.  She LOVED it!!!

Up next is Angela!  Here's our lineup in case you get lost: 

Ashley <= THAT'S ME!
Angela <= GO HERE NEXT!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop!
