thank you ever so much and happy new year!

This year has been AMAZING!!! So many changes and new opportunities! I have made so many fantastic blog friends and I am so grateful for all of you! Here is a thank you card just for you and all the support you have given me over the past year!!

I was so inspired by Joy and Brit to pull out my Hero Arts stamps! So I did! :) I love this flower and this little Thank you background! I used that handy dandy Stamp-A-Ma-Jig again! WOW do I love that thing! I still fell like someone should have told me how nice this little tool is to have around! LOL!

So here is a Joy/Brit/Hero Arts inspired card...

The kraft corrugated piece is a coffee sleeve from Starbucks!  Cute huh? I love those things!

So do you just take the one they give you for your crafts and then slip on your "Stylish" sleeve?? Or are you like the shoemaker who has no shoes?? Of course this card is beautiful and how much do I love the black red and kraft color scheme ....... FABBY!!!
