Thank You!

This post is about thanking someone special... actually 2 special someones... oh, let's make that 3 special someones!!!

First let me show you the cards; then I'll express my thanks!

Isn't that the cutest owl image???

THANKS #1 - Tami!!! Wow! Can you believe it? Tami saw this owl stamp when she was out shopping and immediately thought of me! I am so honored! Not only did she think of me, but she purchased the stamp... and mailed it to me promptly! All because she knows how much I love making owl cards!

THANKS #2 - My Son!!! Many of you know that my son has been living over 800 miles away for the past two years. I have missed him tremendously. He recently made the decision to move back here and return to school (he didn't finish college after high school). I am so proud of him. I know this wasn't an easy decision. I also want to thank him. He takes a genuine interest in me. When I was struggling with the layout for this card, he encouraged me and said, "If you don't like it, don't throw it away. I'll take it." He cheered me on and I finally finished two cards. I asked him which one he liked best and he chose the horizontal one. (shhh... don't tell him, but I'm going to give it to him.)

I appreciate the opportunity to work with an awesome group of ladies, and to get to know Heather, who is very sweet, generous, and kind!
