Thank You Cards

Hi Everyone:  As many of you know from reading my last blog post, I have now retired.  So over the past few days I have been making thank you cards for my co-workers who sent me off in fine fashion.

First, though, Stampin' Up! is having a great promotion for all of you who like the great Designer Series Papers that you can purchase.  It's a BUY 3 GET 1 FREE Who can resist? There are papers for everyone's tastes and they will add that something special to your card and/or scrap booking page.  These papers are excellent for scrap booking as they measure 12" x 12".

To order any of the Designer Series Paper, visit my on-line store HERE or email me

Now on to my Thank You cards 

I would like to give credit to a convention swapper for the inspiration for this card.
