  1. Love mini cards! Love to make them too. For 8 years I was a Girl Scout Leader and I had my daughter attach the mini note cards as thank you's to give to all the people who ordered cookies from her. The customers loved the notes so much they always reordered from her and told me they looked forward to her cards even more than the cookies!

  2. Great card with nice colors. You make it look so easy! I love the layering effected.

  3. Like mini cards. I make mini cards. Like your congrats card.
