It all started with a scrap...

I needed to make a thank you card for my sweet sweet sister. She and her husband came over for Ledo's pizza last Saturday. (I grew up in Maryland, home of Ledo's pizza. If you watch Oprah, you may have seen that Oprah's friend Gayle rated Ledo's #1. Of course they are Marylanders too, so maybe a little biased!) Anyway, Angela (my little sister) and James brought some terrific presents for my girls and I wanted to make her a thank you card.
See the top rectangle of dp (mostly white background?) I had this scrap and decided to try to make a card with it. I thought it matched pretty well with a pack of American Crafts papers I received for attending a crop back in May. So I opened up the American Crafts papers and layered the three pieces on black bazzill, mounted my 4 MM brads, and mounted to the white DCWV card. The "Thank you" is an Anna Griffin stamp, and I used the SU! slot punch. I never would have purchased this particular pack of papers, but now I really like them! If I make this card again I think I will use the bottom paper on top and bottom. Of course I used my last 3 black mini brads on this card, and I'm having trouble finding a pack of just black (at Michael's the black is mixed with metallics, which I have plenty of.) Stay cool! It is hot and HUMID here...

Well, as the "sweet sweet sister" and the recipients of such beautiful cards as well as being able to spend time with my big sister and her family makes me the luckiest person in the world! You know I save all your cards, I am collecting them just like you are collecting the girls' artwork. I guess we are two peas in a pod.
