Thank You~

Good evening my fellow crafters! Coming to you tonight live from my living room. What a great week it has been having my DH here. Lots of things got accomplished this week and we spent a lot of great time together as a family.  I wanted to say THANK YOU to all of you who commented on my last card. I LOVED hearing your stories about your own husbands and the sweet things they do for you. It was quite a comfort for me also to know that many of you have husbands that work long hours as well. I will think of you next time I am alone and putting my kids to bed!! But until then (which will be tomorrow night) I wanted to share a card with you. I got some new punches by Martha Stewart this last week:

Some of her punches now come in a 2 pack. One punch for the corner and one for the edge. This is what it looks like when you put them together! I am still trying to figure out the measuring, but this one didn't turn out too bad. I added some scraps that I have had hanging around for years and that always feels good.
The pattern paper and the tag that I stamped 'thank you' on are both an Amy Butler line from K&Co. The stamp is the new PTI Inside and Out: Thank You set. This card is going to a special friend in my life that has done so many things to help me this last year and a half. One of those was getting me started into running. I have always hated running but she encouraged me to get started and now I really do like it. My heart owes her BIG time! 

Ok. This is a funny thing that the kids were fighting about today. And I mean they were really fighting and screaming about it. We were coming home from church and Cache was yelling that Jesus only loved him and no one else. And of course Ronin was yelling "NO! He loves everyone!!!" And on and on it went. What a thing to fight about!

Anyway. Hope you have a great night. I will see you later this week.  I have some stamp sets that are begging for ink and since DH goes back to work this week there might be some night time hours that I can devote to actually stamping. I missed it this week!
