Thankful Thursday

Hi All! So I've been thinking about doing a regular feature on Violets & Sunshine called "Thankful Thursday" that focuses on projects of gratitude--think thank you notes, gratitude journals, etc. And what better way to start off than with  The Paper Players theme challenge: "Thankful for Spring" thank you cards.

Here's my card:

I love the simplicity of this card! I started with a kraft cardstock base that measures 5 1/2 x 4 inches. I added paper from the Front Porch 6x6 paper pad by Pebbles and then adhered the chipboard sentiment (from Pebbles' From Me To You line). I love the spring colors in this!

Here are a couple of close-ups:

And here is our card once again:

Oh I am so thankful that spring is coming and that the sun was shining today! I hope this card put a little spring in your step. (Yes, I know, you don't have to be thankful for bad puns...)  Please let me know what you think about the Thankful Thursday idea.


  1. I think it's a great idea! And your card is beautiful! Love those pretty papers paired with the kraft. Great combo and design!

  2. What gorgeous plaid paper! I love the touch of pink, and the newsprint matting, too. Thanks for playing with The Paper Players this week!

  3. Love the thankful Thursday idea...looking forward to more inspiration. I am thankful for you and your creative spirit!

  4. I love the idea of Thankful Thursday!! I might adopt it myself! :) I love your card, too... the pinks, greens and Kraft are so pretty together.

  5. Very pretty, Kim! I love the colors in that plaid paper. So fresh and fun! Thank you so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players! :)
