The only requirement for this challenge was that the cards be "thank you" themed, but I gave myself a couple of personal challenges as well. First I wanted to use only scraps for the cards. Second, I wanted to use some of those Michael's dollar stamps that I have been collecting, but never seem to use. I see them and think "oh how cute and it's only a dollar!" Then I buy a bunch, bring them home and that's it. They sell wood mounted (which is what I used here) and clear stamps. I have a bunch of the clear stamps too. I used a couple of those on the tag I posted earlier today.
Before I get to the cards, I want to apologize in advance for the corny humor. I just couldn't help it. The first two are going to an aunt that I am very close to and a close family friend, so they'll appreciate them. The third card (which does not have any of the dollar stamps) is for an uncle that I rarely see. I wasn't sure he'd appreciate the humor, so I made his card a little more sophisticated - still used scraps though.

I think this would have looked better with a black card base instead of the cream, but I wouldn't have been able to use scraps if I did that. I didn't have any black ones big enough.
