A THANK YOU CARD

Happy Monday all!!! Whew!! Life is getting back to normal in the Hobson household - my family all left for their respective homes yesterday and I spent the day cleaning, packing away the Christmas stuff and doing mounds of laundry! Not the best time in the world, BUT it is all done now and that makes me happy because today I am going to STAMP STAMP STAMP - lol!!! I am wishin' I could have gone to Leadership this year, but it is Florida this year, and with Tony gone during the week, it just was not possible!! But, I will be there in spirit with all my stampin' girlfriends!! I also want to take this time to thank EVERYONE who sent me a Christmas card - words cannot describe how touched I was at the amount of beautiful cards I received from Stampin' friends all over!!! I am making a collage from them, and will share it soon!!! So, this thank you card is for all of you - thanks very much for thinking of me! This is a square card that I rounded the corners on to make it softer. I dyed one of the flowers from my pretties kit with my reinkers and I love how it turned out! I made my own patterned paper by using my Kindness Jumbo stampin' wheel with Regal Rose ink and coloring in the flowers with my white gel pen. I just love my wheels and need to use them way more often than I do - they add soooo much!!! And, the stamp set is Flight of the Butterfly, one of my favorites in the catty - glad it is staying around for another round, just think it is soooo fun to play with!! So, now off to blurf some, I am waaaayyyy behind but plan on making the rounds today and then I am going to STAMP!!! So, I am leaving you with the recipe - take care and have a great start to the week!
