Some cute springtime linoleum reduction cut thank you notes!  Pretty simple.  Four press runs (light green, blue, medium green, dark green), removing two leaves or so at a time from the grassy section.  I have some in-progress shots that I can post here or on my blog if anyone is interested.

I feel bad for never replying to the previous poster!  A reduction linocut is when you carve a linoleum block, print it, then take away more material and print again.  You can make really cool layered designs if you plan it out right.

This crafter thread explains it much better and in much more depth: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=326807.0
