With Heartfelt Thanks

Good Morning! Is it hot enough for you? Not sure what the weather is like where you are but here it is getting HOT and HUMID - I'm talking 105 degrees. It's the kind of weather where you go out your front door, walk to your mailbox, return to your house and then have to take a shower because you are so hot and sticky!! I don't look that great in shorts and I don't like to subject others to my very white legs but when it gets this hot the white legs must come out!! Guess I better shave first, LOL!

Anyway, this morning I thought I'd share a card I made for my Dad. After my grandmother's funeral my Dad asked me if I'd make 3 special thank you cards for the funeral home, the pastor and the flower shop. I found Jen del Muro's Saturday sketch and decided to use it for the cards.



I once again was able to use scraps (YIPPEEE!) and I have to tell you I'm so LOVIN' this card!!

The stamp sets are from The Angel Company. I stamped the flower using VersaMagic inks (not sure about colors at the moment...I really need to have a laptop to keep in my room so I don't have to continuously go back and forth). I just loved how Jen cut her sentiment on her card so totally cased that idea from her!! I LOVE ribbon so decided to make little bows to add to the sentiment as well. On the inside of the card it says "thanks". As you can see I used the same color combo (and some of the same paper) that I used yesterday on my Flutter By Anya card. It's so yummy - I think purple, blue and brown might be one of my fav combos!

So what do you think? Feel free to leave me a comment as I so enjoy reading what you have to say :o). Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a COOL day!!!

Very pretty card, Michelle. Gonna have to try that layout. I'm sure your Dad will feel very proud when he hands them out.

So pretty! I'm always in awe of people that can use the stamps that you don't color...sigh, my cards never look this beautiful with those.
Wonderful job my friend!

Great card. I like how you did the sentiment with the bow. I'm cracking up because I too have white legs and hate to wear shorts but it necessary - I live in Texas. God Bless A/C :)
