Every month the theme for the International Blog Highlights is – Thank you! How appropriate.  Again, a Huge Thank you for all that took the time to vote for all the entries.    Remember a simple little Thank You goes a long way, especially in these times.  Send out a thank you to someone that you love or that person that has just made your day!  Why not make their day?  Here is the card  and post that you had originally voted on.

And the link to that post:  Again Thank You!

Now here is my card that can be made for that very special thank you.  It uses one of my favourite stamp sets from the Annual Catalogue - Free as a Bird.  I love this stamp set and I  find myself drawn to it every few months.  I also used something from the new J-D   Mini Catalogue.   This card features the amazing Soft Pastels.  Here is my card and I will give you the Shopping List below.
