Thank You!

When my son's church teacher found out that our whole family had been sick, she brought us over a huge basket full of goodies. She had stuffed a basket full: soup, goldfish crackers, chex mix, cookies, more cookies, orange juice, oranges, grapefruit, and a card and book for my son. In addition, she gave my daughter a big stuffed dog that is now named "Wolfy." Wolfy has blue eyes just like my daughter and she thought that was so cool. So this is the thank you card I made for his teacher. I really wanted to do something spectacular, so I kept trying to think of some idea that would just be an over-the-top kind of card! I was thinking and thinking about what to do, and finally just went with one of my favorite layouts of all time. I guess CAS is my comfort zone, so instead of trying to make an over-the-top kind of card that would turn out blah, I just did what I felt comfortable with. Yes, I have used this layout a lot, but I've always liked how it turned out. I hope she likes it, because I really want her to know how much our family appreciated her thoughtfulness.

You may use this layout often, but that's because it works so well. I think people who have never received a handmade card think that CAS IS over the top because it's so much more special than a store bought card so I think you took the right route. She really does sound like a nice lady to bring you so many goodies.

Ain't nuthin' wrong with staying in your comfort zone or workin' your go-to layout. I love this layout and these colors together...although I don't think anything doesn't work with yummy Ripe Avocado. I'm sure she's gonna love this!
