Thanks, Tim!

Hi, everyone.

Hope it's been a good weekend.

I have two cards for two challenges, both inspired by the genius that is Tim Holtz. Thanks, Tim!

Card 1: A Found Relative 

The card below was inspired by the current Shopping Our Stash challenge to make a project featuring an old image or an old-school tool/technique. This challenge cried out for one of Tim's Found Relatives, who apparently holds the key to the heart of an OWH loved one.  :)

Bo Bunny timepiece collection paper and rub-on
DCWV vellum quote stacks: expressions 

Really Reasonable Ribbon ribbon; Paper Studio brads
3L Scrapbook Adhesive black photo corner
Since this was a Tim-inspired card, I only used one photo corner -- because, as Tim would say, you would expect photo corners for all corners. While I was tempted to do the same with the brads, this is a card for Operation Write Home. So, I went with brads at all four corners to secure the sentiment.
Hooray! Thanks again, Tim!
Card 2: Thanks [dot, dot, dot]

My second card was inspired by a card posted a few weeks ago by SOS' fearless Leader Leslie and by the current OWH Mid-month challenge to make a gratitude/thank you card. Thanks, Leslie, for the inspiration.  :)
