CARDS Snowflake Challenge

Happy Friday!! Hope everyone is having a great day so far!

It has been a month... or longer I guess... since I have played along with a CARDS challenge! I have missed it and was determined not to let another week get by me! So... this is my card!

I need some Thank you's for Christmas so I made a few of these. I need to make some more Thank you's! Hopefully I will get them done and mailed before Valentines! :)

I also need to send Thank you's to everyone for things related to my surgery!

That is like about 50 Thank you's!

At first, I thought I would make them all... um... what was I thinking? So after making it through the holidays and being able to actually think about it....I finally decided on buying Thank you's! So... I did! But... then I decided that I would type a letter... a generic but not really generic letter to everyone so I could write more and really express my gratitude. Then I started thinking about the people that I really wanted to give a handwritten card to so I said... forget it... just write all of the cards. :) You didn't know it was so difficult, did you?

At this point... I need to quit putting it off and just sit down and write them! As appreciate as I am for everything that everyone has done for me... I hate to sit down and write Thank you's! I guess I would just much rather see you and tell you in person than to try and express it in 4 sentences!


Sorry to get off on that! :) I sure am chatty again! What is up with that?

I will hush now and end my post!

Don't forget about Winter's Cards for St. Jude. Also... today is the last day for the EBKS challenge! There is still time to get your card made and posted and have a chance to win $25 worth of Verve stamps!

Peace and Love!

Love this snowman, Kelley! I noticed the card comb (<-think that's what it is), too!!

I say destress by taking the store bought cards and stamp "Thanks alot. Love, Kelley" in the inside and send 'em out! :) yeah, right!

P.S. I loved your return address stamp on your Christmas card & now I'm on a mission to find a generic return address stamp that I really like :)
