I love fruit! It’s right up there with my other favorites, ice cream and chocolate! I received this delicious Edible Arrangement from my coworkers.
Here’s my quick & simple thank you note using the Fresh Fruit Designer Series Paper.
I used a Whisper White Note Card…my favorite go to for thank you notes. The 1/2 doily was left on my desk from yesterday’s projects so I just adhered that on the left of the note card. The strawberry print DSP measures 2 1/4 x 5. I cut a 1/4″ strip of Garden Green cardstock and adhered that next to my DSP. I stamped the sentiment from Tin of Cards Stamp Set using Real Red Ink. I cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and adhered it to a Real Red scallop circle cut from the Layering Circles Framelits. I “fussy cut” a strawberry from the DSP and attached it with a glue dot and popped up the sentiment layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I found a bag with strawberry wrapped candy at CVS and put those in a bowl in the teachers lounge along with the card.
Yesterday was my first day back to work. It was great to see my sweet students. They had all kinds of news and stories they couldn’t wait to share. Their smiling faces is the best medicine! I am thankful I only teach mornings…I came home and took a 3 hour nap! When my own kids were in school my motto was, “12-3 is All About Me!” I would try to get all my errands done before they got home from school and I turned in to “Taxi Mom”. Nowadays it feels like 12-3 is nap time for me! LOL
I really like how this note card turned out! You really get a lot of bang for your buck with the Stampin’ Up! Note Cards & Envelopes. You get 20 cards and envelopes for $6.00. That’s just 30 cents each! Think of all the smiles you could make happen with a simple “just because” card. I went out to dinner last night with some of my friends and we were discussing “Fat Tuesday” and Lent and tossing out ideas for what we could do during this time. It just occurred to me that one of the things I can do is share more handmade kindness. So, I am going to commit to send out 40 cards in 40 days. I think I will write my message on a sticky note and include an extra envelope so the recipient can choose to keep the card or “pay it forward” and send it to someone else. I can easily change out the sentiment on today’s card and even make the layered circles larger if needed. This is one of those “formula” cards I will use again and again with other DSP. Go give it a try!

Have a wonderful day!
