PDCC86-A "Thank You" card

It didn't take long for me to get down in my craft room and create a card!  I decided to play along with The Play Date Cafe challenge.  The colors just scream summer to me!  I used some of my echo park "Splash" patterned paper and the stamp is from The Stamps Of Life, banners4all set.  I added some pink twine from The Twinery to finish it off. 

I made this a "thank you" card because I noticed that I do not have a lot in my stash.  How did that happen?  I file away my cards after I make them into different categories, so that when I need a card for a certain occasion, I can find it easily.  I also periodically go through my cards and bundle them up and donate them to different organizations or nursing homes.  I have also gotten better about mailing out my cards instead of hoarding them!  

Thanks for stopping by!

First Emily, this card is gorgeous...loooove the white space cause it really makes everything 'pop'! And oh my...can you come to my house and categorize my cards please? *smile* I used to file them and haven't in a while, so they end up in a big box and of course have no idea what I have! Thanks for inspiring with this card of beauty...and for making me think about getting organized! Have a fab day!
