Thank You

Here is another hospitality thank you. I will be seeing some friends on my trip and they will be having dinner with me and my daughter, giving us some of their time and showing us some of their city.
I had so much fun with this card. I began with the house pattern from Welcome Neighbor Designer Series Paper Pad. I thought I'd use it for a background, but then the pattern of the houses captured my creativity and I thought I could cut it out "pinking" style and use it like a ribbon across the card. For the sentiment I used the stamp set "Thank You Kindly" which I just purchased recently. I punched it out with my Wide Oval punch and matted it with a Curly Label punch that I paper-pierced and cut in two to "stretch" it out. Put this in a pre-stamped and addressed envelope, bring it with me on the road, and I'll be thanking my way through my trip, giving myself a break when I get home.

Thanks for looking at my creations. I appreciate all of your comments.

Great idea for your "ribbon" - it worked perfectly! I can hear Willie Nelson singing.........on the road again - oh wait is that you singing???
