Blessings have been coming my way lately from parents of students, friends, neighbors and family. I've just been feeling the love my little community offers. This has given me the opportunity to make a million thank you notes.
When I got started working on the cards, my desk was covered in mono prints. If you would like to know more about mono prints click here. It was my mission to make my thank you cards with the mono prints. I made these four lovelies. (Actually I made five cards but forgot to put one in the picture below.)

I made the very first card with scraps. An old cigar box rests on my table holding little bits and parts until they are wanted. I dug through the box until I found a fancy cut card panel. I stuck that to a card base, added a pink bird, and some canvas words from my cigar box. A little baker's twine finished it up.
For the second card, I embossed my Vintage Geranium stamp on a subtle piece of gelli print. The perfect thing about this stamp is it makes a card look complete with just one impression. Next to the pot I stamped kindness from my Fruits of the Spirit Stamp Set. (There is only one left. Yikes! I wasn't expecting that so it's not in my upcoming release.) I was packing up some orders and found two more in the box, so I'll be adding them to the store. Ribbons and buttons wrapped this card up.

The last card looks amazing, but it's just stamped and embossed vellum adhered to a mono print. Easy Peasy.
Do you keep little bits to use on future projects? What do you keep them in. Just curious.
