It's Tuesday and I'm posting to my blog (I know, it's hard to believe)!!! If you're one of my regular readers, you know this is unusual because I normally post once a week (for Pals Paper Arts, not including an occasional sneak peek here and there)! I've set some goals (I did say goals, not resolutions) for myself this year to make some changes on my blog and one of those is to post more often! I'm hoping it's a change you'll welcome and look forward to because I truly love sharing my work with you! I don't want to reveal all of my planned changes at once (I need to keep your curiosity at a peak), so you'll need to continue coming back as the year progresses to find out what other changes I have planned!
I have two cards instead of one to share with you today (the thank you card shown above and the thinking of you card shown below)! I wanted to show you how changing simple elements, such as the card's base color, the sentiment, and/or an added embellishment, can really change the look and purpose of a card! These are easy changes to make and the results can be dramatic! I like the results on both cards and I hope you do too!
