a note of thanks card set

I know I'm not the only crafty person who wakes up at 4:30am unable to sleep thinking of all the things I should've done yesterday and finally getting up at 5am and cranking out a dozen homemade thank you cards for a teacher gift given the same morning, right?  Please don't tell me I'm crazy...   Single layer cards are often harder for me then multi-layer, but I wanted to make a set, so I made flat 4x 5 1/2 one layer note cards and stamped the WPlus9 Folkart Florals flowers and leaves in a few different PTI inks and added a PTI sentiment.  I added a bit of glitter to the center of the blooms with a glitter pen, but otherwise simple cards.  I wrapped the cards and envelopes with May Arts silk and mini chevron ribbon and attached a PTI tag with a coordinating stamped images to complete the present.  The teacher who received them didn't realize they were homemade when I gave them to her and laughed when I told her I made them this morning at 5am.  The Simon Says Wednesday Challenge is anything goes, so I'll add these to that challenge.
