Someone recently helped me with a big thing. Actually, it's already quite a few weeks ago. I wanted to get a little something for them as a thank you, but as usual, it has taken me an eternity to actually manage to complete the complicated task of buying a box of chocolates. I know, for a project manager, I suck at managing anything outside of work (whether or not I manage to do it at work is currently debatable also...). Anyhow, to make up for the delay in getting the thank you to the person, I thought at least I can make it look nice. After all, isn't that the whole justification of buying tons and tons of crafting supplies? So not only did I make a thank you card with some sweets on (I don't have a stamp with Ferrero Rochers, so I thought I would just go with something else sweet I happened to have a stamp for), but also a tag to go on the box of chocs.
Today's card and tag were inspired by the wonderful inspiration image over at The Challenge. I loved everything about the image - the colours, the macaroons of course and the woodgrain of the table. The layout was inspired by the sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch. I'm also linking up with the Thank You themed challenges over at Shopping Our Stash and Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
