Thank You Gift

We just moved into a new home this month. Our next door neighbors brought us over a Welcome basket full of soda, candy, popcorn and a gift card to Blockbuster. How nice is that?! So instead of just a thank you card, I also made a mailbox and stuffed it with Ghiradelli chocolates. I tried to keep it all neutral in colors. So hard to stay away from my "go to colors". But I think this looks okay. I hope they like it!

I used the same layout I've been using lately for the card. It's just much quicker that way. My biggest hurdles in card making (and scrapbooking) is the layout. But again, I just wanted this to be quick and simple and not frilly.
