Soooo Thankful

Hey everyone!  I'm still alive, and let me tell you, sooo very thankful!!  My dad (who is a ski instructor) had a pretty fast collision with a tree about a week and a half ago, and I hopped on the first plane out of Texas up to chilly Vermont.  Eleven of the 12 ribs on the right side of his body are broken...some of them multiple times.  He had surgery to plate some of the ribs back together, and I'm happy to report, is now back home resting semi-comfortably as the healing process progresses.  I spent all of my time at the hospital with him, and I really am so thankful to the doctors, nurses, and staff there that took such good care of him.


Enter my card created for one of the nurses there in the ICU who spent a lot of one on one time with us, and even me!  I want her to know how thankful I am for her dedication to her job, patients, and the families involved.  What a wonderful woman she is!

Taylored Expressions is the sponsor over at the CPS Challenge blog this week, so I was happy to play along.  And if you play along as well, you could have the chance to win some fun prizes...just make sure to submit a picture of your project over at the CPS blog link HERE.  I wanted a really bold sentiment to express my thanks, and the "Thankful" from the Thankful stamp set fit the bill perfectly!  Even though the set has fall images, its so nice to still be able to use sentiments from it all year long. :)  I chose papers from one of my most favorite patterned paper line, October Afternoon's Sidewalks and I stamped my sentiments with Memento Tuxedo Black.  Pretty simple and straightforward card and I hope that she just loves it!  Plus, this is a great card to easily mass produce for more thank you's!!

Thanks for visiting, I promise to be back with another post soon!  School started last week and it's already CRAZY!!
