Thankful for YOU...

Hi friends...thank you for stopping by once again to see what I've been up to!! This is a card I made for my sweet baby sister (she'll cringe when she sees that I called her that!!). Her name is Dee...and she and I are best friends...we talk and email each other almost daily. We talk about anything and everything! Sometimes we just talk about the awful weather they're having in Minnesota!! LOL!! She gives me the "heads up"... because what they get in MN often travels east to VA!!

Anyway...she sent me the funniest package...candy from when we were kids! Well, it's not REALLY the actual candy we had 50 years ago...but same make and model! hehehe!! She sent Mallo Cups, a Clark bar, Jujubes (the kind that you can lob at people's heads when you're at the movies...they also stick like glue to your teeth...ohhh...and they taste like SOAP!!), and Teaberry gum!! Such fun!! So...while I am thankful for so much in my life...I want Dee to know that I am so very thankful for her!!

So Dee...do NOT scroll down. Your card will arrive soon enough!!

Here's the little card I made using one of my fave images from Sarah Kay!! You can get her from Tab at 7 Kids College Fund HERE.


I used Very Vanilla & Cranberry Crisp cardstock, & ribbon from SU. I also embossed the Vanilla cardstock with a Cuttlebug "Thanks" embossing folder. My DP came from Imaginisce - Apple Cider Collection. Martha Stewart's Bubble something (I'm sorry, I don't know the actual name) paper punch was used for the corners & paper edges.


I used my Cuttlebug and die cuts (Eyelet circles & Circles from Spellbinders, and Sizziz tags). Flowers came from Wild Orchids Crafts. So there you have it...oh, I almost forgot....I used Copics to color the images!!


I decided to enter this little darlin' into this fortnight's challenge at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog HERE. The theme is "Give Thanks"...seems appropriate, I think!! So...thanks so much for stopping by for a visit. Have a beautiful week!! See you sooooooooooon!

Cute card Pat. I'm sure your sister will love it.

Dee said...

Her sissy does love it - really...did you think I wouldn't SCROLL DOWN ?? Very touching sentiments for someone who faked sleeping so I'd get my butt paddled by dad! But seriously - you don't need to thank me for the thank you card I sent you for the earings you got me? What kinda messed up childhood did you have anyway??? HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU TOO ....LOVE YA !!!!

I think it should be illegal to be this talented and to be allowed to compete in public. That's all I have to say about that.
