Thank You Just Isn't Enough

Have you ever needed to tell someone thank you for doing something for you or a random act of kindness?  There are a lot of people in my life right now that I need to say that to.  Two of them are my brother & sister-in-law.  The other is my neighbor that lives in front of me.

I made these two cards today to try and convey how I feel.  My brother & his wife have been a source of comfort for me during the past few months.  I can always count on them to be there if and when I need them. 

This is a 5 X 7 card.  The pink background has been embossed with another of the Cindy Loo Cuttlebug folders.  The basket of flowers is a digistamp from Doodle Pantry.  They really have some cute digi-stamps.  The frame is cut from Cindy Loo Cricut Cartridge (page 48).  I stamped a thank you on the bottom of the card.

The second card is for my neighbor.  I was outside one day this week trimming my bushes with a hedge trimmer.  Somehow (only I would do something like this) I managed to cut my knee with the hedge trimmer.  I had a huge mess in the front yard and didn't know how I could get it cleaned up.  My neighbor came over and cleaned it all up so I wouldn't have to. 

 I used the same digistamp but colored it differently.  I tied a ribbon through the pot and attached it with pop dots.  The background paper is from K&Co "Terri Conrad Sweet Life" paper stack.  The saying on the label is part of the digistamp.
Before I complete this, I must say a big Thank You to my children.  They have been my lifeline these past few months.  I love you Brian & Donna. 

I hope you find something of interest on our blog.  Thanks for your visit.  God bless each one.  Peggy

  5. I just found your blog tonight and I can't tell you how much it meant to me. Your cards are wonderful and you do such a neat job. I've been trying to make cards for some time now. My husband passed away in Jan. of 2010, so I know a little bit about the way you are feeling. We would have been married 53 years this past June. So my life is very at time and I thank my children for being so precious to me.


I appreciate your comments and visits. I hope you will come back soon.
