Dynamic Duo's #63 and a thank you card....

Hope you are enjoying your weekend.  I have a quick post for today, just two cards and only one challenge. My challenge card is for this week's Dynamic Duo's, at first I was going to skip this week because I could not get these two colors to work for me.  I played around with several stamps and then I found something that would work and here it is.  

My last card is a thank you card and I recreated another card I made a week or so ago.  This coming week I will be teaching my last week of summer school and my class is on baseball, my favorite sport. Wednesday my class is heading to the Oakland Coliseum for a real baseball game to see the Oakland A's and the Toronto Blue Jays, should be a fun afternoon.  But to make it even better, the Oakland A's donated the tickets and I wanted to be sure to have a thank you card for them. So here is my card.  Thank you so much for taking time to stop by to peek at my cards....have a fabulous week!

  1. I really like your first card - so simple, yet so expressive! Too bad I am going to miss this dynamic duo challenge....I love green!

  2. Both cards are great Kim...the first one really did turn out nice, glad you persevered! Love your second card too!

  3. Fabulous!
    Your perseverance paid off...
    beautiful card!
    And what a perfect card for the A's...
    I know they will appreciate it so much!
    Have fun at the game! :)

  4. Love the greens together - calm and soothing!

  5. Wonderful cards! Your sympathy card is perfect!
    Thanks for playing along at Dynamic Duos this week!

  6. Love both cards - great job with the DD one - I found that to be a hard combination! The baseball thank you is so cute!

  7. Both gorgeous cards Kim, way to rock out this weeks colours at DD. Your baseball thank you is adorable. Thank you so much for sharing your card with us this week at Dynamic Duos!

  8. These are fantastic cards! I looked at the DD and came up blank, but you've scored a huge home run with the first one, and I'm guessing that the A's will be thrilled with your second card. Baseball is my favorite sport too!!! I'm a fourth generation Cubs fan, and have taught the "Go, Cubs, Go" song to my grandkids, much to the chagrin of their Brewers fan dad! These are wonderful, my friend! Bev

  9. Gorgeous work! I particularly love your first card....beautiful design and the touch of the butterfly is delightful!
    Thanks for joining us at Dynamic Duos this week. :)

  10. I really love your first card -- so gentle & soothing!!
