Thank You Cards Using CTMH Confetti Wishes, Cricut Art Philosophy and Cricut Artbooking Cartridges

Hello friends.  I went to the beach for a walk last Friday; which is the first time in over a year.  I use to go every week and spend 4 hrs there on Sunday afternoons; before I married my husband.  I lived closer to the beach at that time.  I didn't realize how much I missed it until I went there again.  I love to walk in the sand and the ocean, watch the Dolphins and just forget about how busy life can be. Of course one of the reasons I stopped going was due to all the smells of sunscreen, smoking, cologne and perfume smells out there; which cause me to have difficulty breathing.  I think I have forgotten how to relax after pushing my self for so long.  I hope all of you are taking time to relax and to enjoy your life.  

I create Thank you cards each month for my customers; and this is one I created for the month of August.  I fell in love with this CTMH Confetti Wishes paper as soon as I saw it.  Of course; you all know how much I love purple; and to have pink and yellow with it, is even better.  LOL!  I leave the inside blank and write a note on some pretty paper to my customers; so that they can pass it on to someone else.  I liked completing the inside too; but this seems more personal to me and can be given to someone else who might need a thank you in their lives.
