Who's Thoughtful?...

I still LOVE making thank you cards best of all. It's such a win-win situation: someone does something nice for me and I get to send them a card to say thanks for being so wonderful! When I saw this week's Pals Paper Arts Fall-themed challenge, I was inspired to make an autumnal thank you card in anticipation of the next sweet thing someone does for me (and I don't think I'm being presumptive since I know so many nice people!)
I used some cute patterned paper to suggest a woodland scene and stamped this adorable little owl from Woodland Winter by Taylored Expressions. To make it "fall," I simply used some autumn colors (I just love it when I find many uses for a stamp!) I punched out a hole in the "tree" for the wise little guy to nest in and added some ribbon and the perfect "thank you" sentiment. I popped out the tree to give the card a bit of perspective and dimension and now this little card will wait in the standby line to get sent to my next favorite person!
