A Sophisticated Thank You Card

A Sophisticated Thank You Card - Create With Joy

Card Of The Week – Thinking Of You

Happy September to you, dear friends! It’s hard to believe that it’s been a month since I last ventured into my craft room to create a card – but sometimes, you find yourself in need of a little rest and TLC!

As we find ourselves on the precipice of Autumn, I find myself returning to this creative space listening to the rhythm of the new season – assessing which creative paths to explore and which creative opportunities to embrace.

My workspace is somewhat in shambles as I work on clearing out the old to make space for the new…

I did clear enough of a space to create today’s card – a beautiful Black and White Thank You Card whose monochromatic theme is jazzed up with a touch of silver glitter and pink bling sparkle! There’s also a touch of green iridescence along the edges of the sheer organza ribbon.

All in all, a rather sophisticated card for a friend!

This week, the Paper Girls and One Stitch At A Time Challenges asked us to share what we are most Thankful / Grateful for in our lives. I am thankful for my relationship with God – my loving husband who has stood by my side through thick and thin – my amazing cats – and for you, my online friends and readers!

  21. Kathy Stacy says:

    So glad you were able to get into the craft room and create. I find that it’s my stress relief and thus try to do it almost daily. I may not get a card made, but at least a portion of it such as coloring or a background. I am amazed that you can keep all those challenges straight. That is impressive. So glad you participated with us at Cards in Envy for our inspired by a Song.
