Because I Care

My friend Lisa hosts our bunco group at her house every month.  Living in military housing overseas, our space is limited and as she and her husband have no children living at home and are in a 3-bedroom house, she seems to have the most room.  I am so grateful to her for allowing us to use her house every month -- it means I don't have to rearrange my furniture to accommodate the group or send my family away for 3-4 hours so we can play without having to edit our conversations!  I wanted to let her know how much I appreciate her graciousness and her friendship.  I decided what better way than with a handmade card!  After all, that's what we do, right?  I also wanted her to be able to use the card, so I wrote my message to her on a post-it note and attached it to the inside of the card. 

This is a very simple one layer card.  I love the Because I Care hostess stamp set!  It is so classy and elegant.  This one was quick and easy, yet to me it still has that WOW factor.  Hope you enjoy!
