It's All About Thanks...



I think 'Thank You' cards are my favorite kind of card to make. I have noticed that thanking someone for doing something nice isn't something that seems to be that important to a lot of people anymore, but I'm still a firm believer. I was in the mood to make a more masculine card today, and I took this week's Mojo Monday sketch as a jumping off point.


I like to change sketches up a bit, which is the great thing about sketches. For this card, the patterned paper actually said, "It's All About YOU!" -- which would have sufficed, I suppose, for a thank you card, but I wanted to hit home my gratitude just a bit more, so I removed part of the sentiment and added my own on a Mini Tag from Taylored Expressions, and the simple word fit right in!
