Waltzingmouse Blog Party

Hello blog hoppers!

It's the 17th in Australia and Waltzingmouse Blog Party time again - this time the theme is 'gratitude.' What better way to show gratitude than by sending a thank you card. It doesn't seem to be that popular in Australia - my better (?) half reckons that we poms send a thank you card to say thank you for a thank you card (if you get my drift) but I think it's a lovely gesture that isn't used enough nowadays.  I remember my Mum making me sit at the dining room table and write thank you letters for all my birthday and Christmas would take me forever!

Anyway, moving on, here's the card I made using the gorgeous Asian Gardens set. Who needs pretty papers when a stamp will do eh?

That pesky bird escapes from his cage every time doesn't he...look where he ended up....

Thanks for popping by, have fun at the party and I'm thankful for any comments left!
