Thank You Mono card

I went to Michael's this past weekend with two 50% coupons in hand (first trip in 4 months). I had the husband pay for the string I needed and then wandered around the store looking for a second item to use my coupon on. On and on I walked, and nothing. I didn't need anymore punches. I didn't need anymore stamps. I didn't need anymore ink. I didn't need anymore embellishments. I didn't need anymore paper. Seriously!!! I am so well-stocked with goodies already - thanks to the wonderful design teams that I'm on. I feel so spoiled! Just last week I received 42 new ColorBox Cat's Eyes ink!! It's like Christmas every other week! :)

This is a quick thank you card I made for one of Purple Cows' amazing partners and future sponsor for Caardvarks as well!


Anyhoots, can't waste the coupon like that so I bought a pretty Amy Butler fabric tote that I can use to hold the new baby's diapers and other "stuffs". $5.41 out the door! :D
