For A Friend***





My good friend Mary fell and broke her ankle a few weeks ago and has been at home not being able to do much until her injury heals some.. She and her husband Dave have a great network of friends who have been visiting, calling and making food. I thought that these little cards with their own envelopes would be a great gift for her so that she could send out thank yous when the mood strikes.

I used the Captured Card Case Template designed by Lauren Meader for Papertrey Ink.
The flower image and sentiment are also from a new set by Papertrey Ink. Lauren Meader has a great tutorial for this project on her blog HERE.

I just used different colors and stamps. I also attached the designs on the top of the box only to the ribbon so that Mary can easily slide the ribbon off and get to the cards and envelopes.

Have a great day everyone and thanks so much for stopping in***
