My Thoughts Exactly April Release Blog Hop

Today is release day for My Thoughts Exactly!  There are 4 sets this month, and I'll be sharing Mini Thoughts and More Big Thoughts.

I just adore these mix and match sentiments:

So many options for so many occasions!  

My card uses an interesting household item (hello, Cath, of the Moxie Fab World!)...can you guess what it is?

.....Popsicle sticks!!  These ones are actually a bit wide- something between a standard popsicle stick and a tongue depressor.  I just cut off the rounded ends and arranged them like wood planks.  They are nice and lightweight and not too thick, so I think this card will mail just fine!



Next up is a set called Mini Thoughts:

Their small size is just perfect for a tag!

I applied washi tape onto a tag in a concentric hexagon pattern.  It was tricky to get them just right, but I like the result.  I love the sentiments in this mini set too...it has a complementary "big" set- the same words, just larger.  This tag is headed for the Craftoholics Anonymous washi tape party!
