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. 

Thank You by Moanica Caston.  Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Patterned Paper: American Crafts;  Floral title sticker: Crate Paper; Brads: My Mind’s Eye; Border punch: EK Success; Butterfly punch: Martha Stewart; Alphas: American Crafts Thickers.

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