Just for you

Earlier this year I started a gratitude journal.  I wanted to remind myself to be present every day and to recognise all the moments that I have to be thankful for - both big and small. Like many new years resolutions I haven't entirely kept it up, but I've thought about a pivot.  What if I make cards to say thank you and I appreciate you and I give them away?  That way I get to both create and gift at the same time.  Great idea right?  So I'm halfway there - as I've started making some cards.  Now I just need to create that purposeful moment in my week - each week - to do the 'thank you, I appreciate you' bit.


This card is pretty abstract.  I like it because it is.  I used quite a few stamp sets and colours to create it, but really as they are all similar hues, with just the pop of gold I think it works ok.  Rather than looking really complex, it's just subtle layers of similar colours and styles.


I used quite a few different products (as you can see from the carousel below. But I think they all work together quite well.  Sometimes its really hard to combine products from your craft cupboard together. Thankfully these really are all made to go together so it means it's a little easier for me.  (Sometimes I just need my craft sessions to be easy).

I'm still on the journey to actually send these thank you cards... but I'm determined I'll get there.  If you've got any tips on how to build out the habit in my life, leave a comment - I'd love to hear.

Happy crafting.
