Thank You Thinlits

20181229_155442

It's time for THANK YOU cards!! This is a challenge I received from #DeniseWaddell, my Team Leader from California. Denise sent me an envelope with pieces of the adorable ALL MY LOVE Designer Sereis Paper#148576 from the upcoming  2019 Occasions Catalog. Directions: make a card and post it! I needed a Thank You card for a new customer so paired the designer paper with the THANK YOU THINLITS #146832! Perfect!

I love petite print papers because they are easier to use than big splashy designs.

20181229_155421

I hope this makes the recipient SMILE!! 

GET READY!! The 2019 Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Promo begin Jan. 3rd!! It's the BEST time of year!
