More Thank You's

Hello!  Do you ever catch yourself talking to yourself?  (All the time!)  Well, I'm kind of feeling like I'm talking to myself on here!  Is anybody out there?? :) 

Well, regardless of who's looking, I thought I'd share a couple more Thank You cards that I made for the Gallery Idol contest.  Yesterday was the final day to enter, and there were an amazing 685 cards that were entered.  I think I entered 6 cards. (so the odds aren't so hot.)  But at least I have some more thank you cards on hand, and they always come in handy.  I'm still trying to come up with a nice end-of-year gift for Lexie's teacher.  She had such a great year of kindergarten with her.  Anyone have any new, creative ideas for teacher gifts? 
This first one was actually inspired by a quilt pattern I found online.  It was then I realized that I need to borrow some of my mom's quilting books for more card ideas!!  The stitching was a "little" tedious, but I love how it adds so much to the card.  (paper is Cosmo Cricket)
The next one is a different color combo for me.  Not so sure I love it all together, but it's good to break out of the box a little, right?  (Red paper is from Stampin' Up, stamp was $1 from Michael's)

Well, I think I need to bake some bars today.  Since it's too hot to turn on the oven, it's going to be some Special K Bars.  Yum!  (of  course, I use cheap corn flakes to save money - but "Special Generic Corn Flakes Bars" doesn't have the same ring to it!)

Have a great day - and God Bless!


  1. Love the quilted one! Great colors! And, no - you're not talking to yourself - I check everyday and am so proud of you!

  3. I love your website. You're so creative! I'm going to have to make a couple of cards today also. I sure hope you win the contest b/c your designs are beautiful....like you! Have a good day! Love, Debi
