Flicker Cat Thank You Note

I wasn't planning to post this thank you card because it was too embarrassingly simple, but I really liked how it came out, so here it is.  It all started with a set of flicker cat stickers purchased at a discount store.  I don't own a cat but know lots of people who do so I knew I'd make use of the stickers....eventually.
Remember the flicker pictures we all were fascinated with as kids?  They change as you move the image back and forth.  Here's how the cats merge with a flick of the wrist.  I simply stuck the sticker down on the pre-made card (from a Nicole Designer Card set purchased at HM Ben Franklin Crafts and added the die cut 'thanks'(Hero Arts stamps and die set also from BFC). Voila!  It's an instant thank you note for a cat lover.
I love decorating envelopes too, and chose a decorative cat tape (not washi) I found at Celebrations (next door to the Mapunapuna BFC) to border the front and back of the envelope.  Well, that's it for this 10 minute thank you card!

Hi Lynn! Your CAS cards are super cute. There's nothing embarrassing about simple cards. Sometimes less is more. You did a fabulous job. Have a great week.

Love this!I always use stickers for cardmaking, because if you look at those expensive "handmade look" cards in some shops, they look like they are using some of our stickers. Extra bonus...I love cats!
