Thanks a Million

We have a sweet lady that my husband works with who has been helping us out with some travel arrangement, and we wanted to do something nice for her to thank her.  So, I made this little card and also bought her a Starbucks gift card. Sometimes just saying, "thank you" isn't enough.  There are times when you really feel the need to do something extra, so this is for her and we are truly grateful for the kind people God has placed in our lives who bless us in different ways.  We want to show our gratitude.  I hope she enjoys this little gift.

I'm entering this card in a few different challenges.  Maybe this will be a lucky week for me. - Pile It On Challenges - Bingo.  My Bingo is across the bottom - I have GLITTER on the bottom scallop, PEARLS on the banners, and I SEWED the outer edges. I hope you like it. - Simon Says Stamp Challenges - Let's Play Bingo.  My Bingo is RIBBON (on the banners), DIE CUTS (flags), and BUTTONS. - The Ribbon Carousel Challenge #65 - One Stitch at a Time.  I stitched around the outer edges. - Mark's Finest Papers - Show Us DOTS - I used a green and white polka dot patterned paper

The camera I've been borrowing from a friend is being returned this afternoon, so I'm not quite sure how I will be taking photos for a while.  Looks like I may be purchasing a new digital camera this week. Yet another thing to praise God for. . . .my husband's job.

Happy Monday,
