Happy 2 Years and some Thank You Note Cards

Today is my 2 Year Blogversary.  I almost forgot about it to be honest.  I love so many things about blogging, but some of the details (number of followers, number of posts, anniversary dates) are not as much fun for me as the CREATING and SHARING my projects.  I want to thank all of my followers, subscribers and cyber friends for the motivation, comments, links and friendships over the past 2 years!!!!  When I began this journey it was simply a way to upload photos to the Cricut Message Board (the only way I could figure out how to that is).  Within one year, I was Guest Designing on three blogs and my readership steadily increased.  I have met several wonderful friends that I sincerely hope to see in person one of these days!!!

Thank you!!!

I made this Thank You/Notecard set for Toni who was my Cricut Circle Stocking Sister.  She sent me an amazing box jam packed with tons of scrappy things!!!  Instead of sending her just a Thank You card, I sent her a set!!

I was inspired by this lovely set that Sheila sent me!  I am linking my thank you cards up at Sheila's BLOG this week for her Thank You Linky Party!

To make the folder, I took a piece of kraft brown 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock and folded it in half (5 1/2) and then turned it and folded the bottom 2 inches.  This was configured to fit the envelopes which are 4 3/4 x 6 1/2.  You could easily adjust the bottom fold to fit a smaller envelope.

I cut a piece of purple cardstock (5 1/2 x 6) and used my Martha Stewart edge punch to punch the edges.  I cut a piece of patterned paper (5 1/2 x 4) to adhere on top of the purple cardstock.

I cut the circle with flourish from Home Decor at 1.94 inches.  I cut the letter T (for Toni) from Calligraphy (shadow) at 1.67 inches and "Thanks" from Calligraphy (shadow) at 1 inch.  I punched a 1 1/2 inch circle out of kraft brown cardstock with my Fiskars punch.

Here is the cover put together and the Thanks card.

I punched two holes in the folder with my Crop-A-Dile and strung some crinkle ribbon through.  I ran a line of glue across the front of the folder to hold the ribbon down.

Here is the folder all closed up.  Toni, your package is on its way ~ thank you for the wonderful gift!!!

To my followers ~ thank your for your kind and encouraging words these past two years!!!
