Happy Tax Day!

If you're in the USA, Happy Tax Day!  Honestly, it's not normally a happy day for me.  How about you?  My husband and I are married with no kids, so we don't get many tax breaks, thus we normally owe Uncle Sam a good chunk of change.  This year, God blessed us with the biggest federal refund we've ever had!  Now, it's not like $5000.00 like those of you with a bunch of kids, but it's a lot to us and it was certainly a blessing.  So, tax day is a happy day this year!

On to the card...

Here's a super simple pocket card I made a few weeks ago.  I really like this style of card and it's great if you're not mailing it, since it doesn't have an envelope!

I really like this gingham-ish paper on the flower.  It's from a stack called "All the Small Things" and it's a very eclectic mix of patterns.

Here's the simple card that goes on the inside.  I am saving this card for my "no-frills" friend at work.  Her birthday is coming up and she doesn't like pink, girlie, sparkly things, so I think this fits her perfectly!
