thanks - Vicki's Take

Jeannie and I just couldn't wait to do another card so here we are. The husband of a lady that I work with was in a really bad accident. He was on a garden tractor going across a small bridge and the bridge broke and the tractor overturned on him. He has went through numerous surgeries and is just really lucky to be alive. Well, we live in a very small town and everyone knows him and has been great in pitching in and doing things for them and helping them financially, they have 3 small children, and it is so hard for the mom to do everything. It is amazing how a small community comes together when there is a need. Well, she came to me yesterday and asked if I could make her some thank you cards for her to send to everyone that has helped. I was honored that she would want my cards to give to everyone. So I am making a bunch of thank you cards for her. I hope she likes them and I hope everyone that receives them likes them too. For the challenge Jeannie picked the flower from George (one of my favorite flowers) and we used the saying thanks for going above and beyond. I hope you like it. I can't wait to see Jeannies. Believe it or not, I did 90% of the card while talking to Jeannie on the phone.
George flower cut at 3", 3 1/4" and 3 1/2".
Plantin Schoolbook- leaves at 2" #4 cut at 1 1/4" and also shadow cut
Mini Monograms- Thanks
I think Jeannie had thought I had lost my mind because I told her I had to wait a few minutes before I could take my picture because my card was in the freezer, yes the freezer. That is the fastest way to dry stickles.... I used the stickles on the ends of the flower petals. I am still laughing because she sent me a pm and it said freezer?????? do tell. I know she thought I had sniffed too much glue .


  1. wow this is awesome too, I have just been to Jeannie's blog. You have both been very busy, great cards.
