St. Louis and Thank you cards

So I’ve been absent from the blog world for a while with good reason, I was on vacation! I went to St. Louis with a couple of friends. We had a great time and worked in a lot of things while we were there. We stopped in Springfield to go through Fantastic Caverns, took in a Cardinals/Cubs game, toured the Anheuser-Busch brewery, went up in the arch, visited Six Flags, and of course there was lots of shopping.

I had my first visit to an Archiver’s store. We do not have these in Oklahoma. I was completely overwhelmed! Here is what I ended up buying – lots of patterned paper (my current obsession) and some Jenni Bowlin butterflys.

I needed a couple of thank you cards for my trip, so I made some with my new goodies. The first card is one I cased from Dawn McVey.

Here is the second card. I’m not a big fan of stickers, but I used them on this card. It turned out cute.
