Everyday Wonderful with Creative Cafe' KOTM

Hey all!  Laura here with a you wish you had a stash of cards to send when a friend is needing a pick me up, or to say a simple thank you or I'm thinking of you?  It's my goal for 2014 to be better about having those types of cards ready to go, so I can send one out at a moments notice.  Want to join me?  This month The Rubber Cafe' Creative Cafe' Kit is wonderful for cards like this one:

Second Layer: 4" by 1&1/2" strip of tree pattern paper with 1/2" strip of
                        blue paper adhered to left side.  Tie blue seam binding
                        ribbon around this piece, then adhere to card.

Embellishment: Clouds stamped on white and fussy cut (one cut in half)
                         then adhered to card.  Doodlebug tree sticker added,
