Thanks for all you do. Yes that’s something we need to say all the time. There are so many people to thank for the various things they do in our lives. I’ve been trying to be good about sending out thank you cards this year. Making the cards isn’t the problem – its writing the note inside, addressing them, getting the stamp on them and getting them in the mail box.
So when 2018 started I challenged myself to be better – I started doing #mailacardmonday – every Monday I mail out cards – sometimes it might be just one and other times it might be 10 or 20. I had a few slips where instead of Mail a Card Monday it was Try Again Tuesday! And last week not only was it a holiday (which normally I still try to have them in my box) but it was pouring rain and cold – really POURING rain – so I didn’t even try to go outside. So my cards went out on Wednesday and more on Friday. But today I’m trying to get back on schedule to finish out the year and plan to keep it up in 2019.
Today’s card is a sweet Thank You card. Really a very easy design that could be adapted with any designer series paper for any time of year.
The pumpkin paper is from the Toil & Trouble Designer Series paper pack from the Halloween Suite in the Holiday Catalog. It was a perfect pattern for a fall card after Halloween. Cut the paper into 4″ squares and you can get 9 cards out of one sheet of 12×12 paper. I added one of of the metallic Leaves Trinkets from the Annual Catalog tied on with Linen thread for added touch of fall. The stamp set is Friendly Expressions also in our Annual Catalog.

Now I think I’ll get out some of my Christmas paper and try this same idea to make a stack of Christmas cards – what do you think?
