The Paper Players #50


I am so excited to bring you my very first card as part of The Paper Players Summer Design team!!





I'll let you in on a little secret. I don't normally do New Year's resolutions but I decided that this year that I would like to make sure that I thank people for not only the big things that others do in our lives but also the little things as well. I do this verbally, but I would really like to make more of an effort to let people know how much I appreciate their kindness by sending them a card now and again too. So ... this is the first of many 'Thank You' cards that you will be seeing on my blog :)

I would love for you to play along with us at The Paper Players! If you have any questions, feel free to ask and I always love reading your comments :)
