I made a thank you gift for a friend consisting of 4 notecards, a matching notepad and a cute pencil that I bought at M’s (the pencil dictated my patterned paper choices).  This particular friend likes earthy tones like I do so it was a pretty easy project – I just made cards that I’d like:

ONE:

TWO:

TREE:

FOUR:

She liked it!
