Thank You Cards

 I don't know about you, but I rarely receive handwritten Thank You cards anymore.  In today's society it's so easy to send a text message, facebook or say thank you in some other super fast past manner.
 A few of my high school friends and I recently got together for our annual "Girls Week".  We always exchange gifts of some sort (usually silly in nature).  I wanted to be sure and send each one of them a Thank you. 

I started in my craftroom and instantly had a creative block.  I just grabbed a quick 6 x 6 paper pad I had and die cut the word thanks in pink paper using a Simon Says Die.  Now I was faced with what the heck am I going to do with it?  So I cut another one in the pink.  Again... no ideas were forming in my mind.  I was determined I was going to use these papers and I was going to make at least 2 cards.
Quick tip.  To adhere the die cut back into the cut out negative, add Thermoweb Super tape to the card base before you add the pattern paper.  The double sided adhesive will hold the die cut neatly in place. 

And so, two, super simple Thank You cards were born.  These look nothing like my style and I'm still not sure I'm really happy with them, but sometimes you just have to work through those creative blocks and move on to the next thing.  I still have two more thank yous to make.  I think I'll switch paper pads. :)
