Many Thanks and City Crafter Challenge #181

Happy Mail from CAS-ual Fridays came today!

Although Canadian Thanksgiving was last weekend I could not wait to ink up my new Amber Waves stamp set. It is always a good idea to have some thank you cards on hand. A kraft card base, Basic Grey Hipster patterned paper and that gorgeous bunch of wheat and of course I can't make a card without stitched matts.  A really clean and simple card to put together, I love it when a stamp is the showpiece! I am also submitting this to the City Crafter Challenge Give Thanks.
