One of my goals is to make more cards. (Stop laughing, Tiare!) No, really. I have received some beautiful hand-made cards recently and my joy and pleasure in receiving them is something I want to pass along. As a papercrafter, I know the time, attention and effort that go into making them. And I should be spreading that enjoyment!
I thought I’d start with a simple “thank you” card. It’s a sentiment that we don’t share nearly enough. If you think about it, there is probably someone right now that you should express gratitude towards.
I received a really nice 6x6 paper pack as a gift and thought it might be great for cards. I tried to think of the card surface as a “mini” layout and included all the elements I normally would: patterned paper, embellishments and, of course, Thickers! I love the sparkly brads I pulled from WAAAY back in my stash.

I think I’m off to a pretty good start. Can’t wait to see where my cardmaking takes me!
