Thinking of you Mojo

insert tag
Today's card was inspired by me looking for a reason to send someone dear to me a card. I thought a "thinking of you" card would be appropriate. I made this one to go a step further. It features a pocket in the top of the card. This card could be used for birthday purposes, thank yous, or a simply "you are kind". With the pocket you could slide in a personal note, a Ghirardelli chocolate square or even a gift card.
I think this card can be a lot of fun.
