This week’s Paper Players Challenge #267 is a Clean & Simple Leaves Theme.
I needed a thank you card to send to Charlie‘s “Aunt” Tracy who babysat him while we were away at Krautfest last weekend. (After all, the sweet “Aunt” that she is, she even let him sleep in bed with her – and hog the covers – and woke up at 6am with him on a Sunday morning to go for a walk!) THANK YOU my dear friend Tracy!
So this was a great reason to turn my CAS leaves Paper Players Design Team inspiration card into a special thank you card.
Trying to keep it “clean and simple,” I chose the StampinUp “For All Things” stamp set with oak leaves that stamp in a watercolory kind of effect. I stamped them in Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, and Cajun Craze Ink colors, and stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip Brown Ink.
Charlie and I wrote her a note of thanks inside, where I also stamped some acorns, which should remind her of the acorns Charlie likes to chomp on our walks and that I like to crack and smash when I step on them to hear that awesome crunching sound.
You see – Tracy has been my walking partner for the past 20 years or so! We are neighbors with a path through the woods to each other’s homes now and were neighbors before these homes! Wow – another testament to how time flies! We have been walking together all this time and neither of us is skinny yet! LOL! But we sure do enjoy the company and the “therapy” our walks provide – both physical and mental.
So thanks, Tracy, for your great friendship.
And thanks to all of you for visiting today.
In all things give thanks, for there is so much to be thankful for!
Cheers & Hugs,
Jodi (& Charlie)
