No, no... Thank YOU!

Confession time: I really enjoy making thank you cards, but I am absolutely TERRIBLE at actually giving them to people. I don't know why, either! I often will make a card with a specific person in mind and can't get my act together to mail or hand-deliver the darn thing. Well, I'm setting a goal for myself. I WILL send a thank you note once a week, starting with this card right here.
I was inspired by the most recent Freshly Made Sketch, which you can see below.
This card just makes me want to cheer - yeah, me! When I saw this sketch, I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted to make, and this card came together fairly quickly. I think the card makin' mojo is back, baby! Wahoo! I'm using up some more of my retiring goodies - the designer paper, In Color card stock and ribbon, as well as the stamp set (Full of Life). Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Full of Life
Paper: Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, So Saffron, Whisper White, Just Add Cake dsp
Ink: Poppy Parade
Accessories: Big Shot, Stripes embossing folder, 2 1/2" circle punch, Petite Pennants Builder punch, mini silver brads, Peach Parfait Stitched-Poly Ribbon
