Thank You Berry Much!

Hi

I needed a thank you note, so I went to my trusty scrap bin and put this number together. I also gave myself a challenge and that was to use stamps that have not seen ink yet.  I have had the Green Thumb stamp set by PTI for a long time using many images in this collection, but not the sentiment shown or the precious strawberry.

I started with a kraft card base and then just played around with some fun bright colors in my scrap pile!  I can assure you that my pile is not lessening even though I try and create from here first....might be a sign I have a lot of paper!!!!

I added some fun and bright buttons to coordinate with my papers and adding my sentiment from Green Thumb.



I am going to play along with The Kraft Journal: Anything Goes and Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge.

Stay warm and have a crafty day!
~Tammy~
