Thank You For Always...

First I'd like to thank a wonderful fellow blogger for her help this week.
When you get down to my challenge entry list you will notice that it has been cleaned up a bit thanks to her wonderful help.
Thank you, thank you, thank you Claire from Scrap My Way for helping me with this!
I really appreciate your help.

Another person I'd like to thank again is Karon from Karon's Krafty Korner.
She encouraged me to start my blog and helped me get it set up.
She is also my MOST LOYAL follower. She has come and commented nearly everyday.
Thanks my friend.

Oh my gosh where did my energy go?
You would think that now that we have had a few days of sunshine I'd have plenty of it but nooooo.
I waited too long to finish my taxes but did get them in the mail Monday morning.
Whew! Glad that is done for another year. Why do I put these things off?

Sorry I haven't posted in a few days...
I've been working on a lot of projects.
-Next week is our parent volunteer luncheon at school. I have been helping with decorations and thank you gifts.
-Also this year I have some parents I wanted to make something special for.
I am making a Hello Kitty shape album for them. The dad comes EVERY Tuesday-Friday morning to help me with playground duty. This is after he works a full night shift. The mom comes every Monday to help me then helps out in their daughter's class.
-We found out our district is moving one of our special ed programs to another building in the district next school year. Due to this we are going to loose 10 of our staff members. I am making each one of them a thinking of you card.
-Also I am helping with their goodbye gifts and party decorations.

Anywhoo the point is the time and my energy has slipped by me.

Today's card is a thank you card.

Sorry about the bad picture lighting. 

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*I designed the 5.25 x 4 in. card front in the Cricut Craft Room.
The words are welded and then cut from the card front so the colors can show through from the back. The T, Y and always are cut at 1 in. from the Cricut Jasmine cartridge.
The rest of the words are cut at 1 in. from the Cricut Extreme Fonts cartridge.
*The butterflies are cut at 1 and 1.25 in. from the Cricut Create a Critter 2 cartridge.
*Rhinestones are from Joanns.

Thank you for stopping by.
Please come back real soon.
