The endearing "THANK YOU!"


My "scrap" bend is full and I am trying to use as much product for "Thank You" cards as I can. I look through my scrappy supply and I am not sure why I am actually holding onto so much that seems to be older product. But I do. I think we as scrappers tend to hold on to our goodies and not use them. But I am "freeing" myself from this and it is quite revealing to me what I have held onto and then I remind myself...I bought it to create and release energy. I am not a great card maker. It is hard for me to go back and forth from large layouts to card making. I envy those that have this talent for sure. Thank you cards are always in need. I think we as a society have forgotten the good feeling we get when we receive one via snail mail. I have been sending many these days out to family and friends that for whatever reason needed me to say, "Thank You." Sometimes, just a thank you for a friendship or smile is a good enough reason to send one. We always send thank you cards for condolences or celebration. That is almost a given. But we need to send the "Thank You" to those that affect our lives on a daily basis. So, my pledge to myself and to reduce the "scrappy bulge" in my scraps drawer is more than freeing it is a must thing to do. So here are some cards I have been "scrapping" together just to give to that special someone.

I need to start doing this more as well. I know I feel good when I receive a Thank You in the mail. Those are beautiful cards.

These are beautiful cards. I love the intricate details you've put into each of them. I'm a junker and scrapper too and you would not believe the amount of supplies I have in my studio/craft room. But I love it. Would not throw anything away to save my soul. And Yes we need to send out more thank yous. Thanks for your comment on my blog.
