When life hands you scraps...turn it into art!

A little thanks goes a long way

It's so easy to say thank you when someone does something thoughtful, or goes out of their way to help you, and it means SO much to that person on the receiving end of the "THANKS!" 

Yesterday I received a baby gift from our General Contractor, and it was so unexpected, and so genuinely thoughtful.  I wanted to make sure that I got her a thank you card before I left on maternity leave.  So, this morning, I woke up just an extra 15 minutes early and fired up the Cricut.  Since her gifts were all jungle themed (and without knowing it she matched the nursery), I wanted to giver her a jungle themed Thank You card. 

The monkey was cut at 3" and the vine was cut at 6"

The "thank you" stamp didn't come out as planned, but I tried to correct my little flub by tracing the original stamp outline with a small marker, and coloring it in with a different color.

Thank YOU to all who took the time to read this post today.  Hope you're all having a wonderful day.
