A "Thank You" card...

Hello Blog Land! As you can see, I had a day off today to celebrate The 4th of July. What better way to celebrate than to spend a little time in my "Happy Place".  I wanted to make a Thank You card for someone who did a really nice thing for my Daughter and I. Savannah had a broken glass on one of her VW's side mirrors and I called an old business colleague to have it replaced. What a sweetie...he did it for free!!! I know it wasn't a fortune but it REALLY gives me a little faith in mankind when people do nice things for others. I couldn't let that go by without saying "thanks". So..."Thanks Tim"! 

I will be making another one with a slightly different theme when I get a chance. Don't you love it when you are working on one card and get an idea for another one?!?
I pulled out one of my OLD wood mounted stamps for this one. I know, I can hear the gasps! This poor thing has been collecting dust for so long and I actually think this is the very first time I have used it. The stamp is a "Just Married" stamp, but I did a little paper piecing and made a new license plate.

That little card is sooo cute. I love the polka dots and the way you changed it up. (Very cute stamp too).

I have no doubt that someone did something nice for you because of the kind and supportive things you do through others, through your art and crafting.
Good things happen to GOOD PEOPLE!!!
