Little Red Wagon Challenge #323 ~ Thanks!!!

Hello.  It's our first challenge for 2016 at Little Red Wagon.  Our wonderful hostess for this challenge is Mandy and she is saying "THANKS!"  She wants to see your projects full of gratitude, our thank you cards.  As kids I remember the week after Christmas when we were off of school we had to write thank you notes to all of our relatives who had given us gifts at Christmas.  And then we actually put a stamp on them and sent them in the mail. This seems to be a dying art in this age of computers as we just email or verbally say thank you and that is it.  But it is so nice to receive a written thank you for a gift, if someone has had you to dinner at their house or just a thank you for being my friend.  What a great pick me up that would be.  I am vowing here and now that I will be better at doing that this year.  I am off to a good start as here is the first card to send out.

I kept things CAS especially for me with no colouring involved on this card.  Sentiment stamp is from Stampendous and I have had it since I made cards for my daughter-in-law to send out from her wedding shower.  Paper is Kaisercraft.  Punches are EK Success and Martha Stewart.  Bling and twine are from my stash.
