Thanks 2016:


'Tis the last day of 2016!  I am excited to ring in the new year at home with the ones I love - my husband and dogs.  Certainly nothing fancy, but a nice quiet evening at home =)

I felt a thank you card was the perfect way to bid adieu to 2016!!  I was inspired by Jennifer McGuire's blog post of Stretching Your Supplies:  Dies using an inlayed die technique.
