CASE-ing the Catty Thanks - CTC35

It's Friday so that must means it's CASE-ing the Catty and today we are highlighting Thanks which is on pages 13 to 18 in the Annual Catalogue.

You may have come from Julia Quinn and I love her card which has the bright butterfly in the corner or you might be starting here, but don't forget to hop to all the blogs as there are amazing this week.

I have chosen the belly band on the Tag a Bag Gift Box (8 kraft boxes for $12.25) on page 16, however I have used the Petite Cafe Gift Bags (10 bags for $10.50 which is fantastic value) to case this week.  I am planning to give the candle which happens to be handmade by my downline Tanya Partington as a thank you gift to a friend so I decide to coordinate it so it matched the packaging.  I was really happy with how it turned out, and I am sure she will love it once it has been posted next week.

To make the cute little Heart Banners in Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo and Mossy Meadow, I used the Hearts Border punch and then punch out the individual heart with the Banner punch.
