Thank you....

Happy Tuesday! I'm going to have a hard time keeping track of what day it is having been off yesterday. How about you guys?

I was asked to make some thank you cards for my youngest son's school's parent association yesterday and they asked for them by Wednesday so I got to work right away. I didn't even think about it until now but the theme for the school year is...Grow Deeply Rooted Colossians 2:6-7....is this card not perfect? I used the tree from the Thoughts & Prayers set and a thank you from Thank You Kindly. I used last weeks Stamping 411 sketch as it fit this image perfectly. I just used my SU! markers to match the leaves on the tree to the leaves in the paper and added a knotted ribbon (reverse side of Soft Suede polka dotted ribbon) at the bottom. Each Schmesy yet perfect for the occasion!

I forgot to add what paper to the inside so that it is easier for the PA to write their note but that will only take me a second although...I may see if I have a Big Shot Die that might work for a little extra decoration. Sometimes ya have to dress it up just a little inside, ya know?

Anyway, I'm working on my 3 Clovers Challenge card for this week and have an idea in mind for a Late Night Stampers challenge (to use my Big Shot) so hopefully I'll have some fun stuff coming up for ya soon!

Have a super day everyone!
