My aunt sent me the most thoughtful gift for Christmas.  She made all the female cousins a very special charm necklace using charms from my Grandma’s bracelet.  My grandma passed away this year and it has been hard on the whole family.  The necklace was such a surprise and such a wonderful gesture.  I wanted to make her a nice thank you card so I used this week’s Mojo Monday Challenge.  I love the new in colors from Stampin Up.  I think the Pool Party and Calypso Coral make a pretty combo with a retro feel.

Inside of the card

I got this great idea from Mary Fish’s blog about “re-gifting” cards.  I know that I put a lot of thought and love into the cards that I make so to think they just get thrown away makes me sad.  So I thought this idea of adding an insert in the card with your message so the card can be re-gifted was brilliant.  So I added a coordinating insert for my message and also put a little blurb about how the card can be reused since I wrote nothing directly in the inside.  I guess this could be considered a little take on the pay it forward mentality…send the card along to someone else.  🙂
