Ever Thanks ~ Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge #21

Good morning, dear friends...today's card is the perfect example of how inspiration can come from the least likely places. While in the funeral home last weekend, we had to wait a few minutes for our director. There was a binder of thank-you cards to the various directors from former families/clients on a table by my chair. I read this sentiment and fell in love with it. (I googled it and it's from Shakespeare's Twelfth Night) I wrote it down and then typed it into a word document and printed it out in a chocolate brown. I also was itching to find a project for this fiskars border punch...this was the maiden punch!!


On a bit of a tangent now, but since some of you had wondered how mom liked her Christmas card from the last Raspberry Suite Challenge last month...she did :) Especially the bling...she ran her fingers across all the gemstones. I read her the card and got a little choked up. Little did I know that she would only have it for a week. But each time I visited her that last week, I smiled when I saw the card and the "I love you so much" sentiment on it :) I hope you all have a wonderful weekend...hugs and smiles :)

Hey girl! This is adorable. I just love polka dots *happy sigh*

Your card reminds me to get a goin' with my Raspberry card too!

The polka dots just make me feel happy. :) I love how you mirrored the dp on the bottom of the sentiment. This is such a lovely sentiment. I have to admit that before I even finished reading your post, I skipped to the bottom to read through you supply list. I was dying to know what stamp that was!

Have a wonderful weekend! I'm sure your kiddos are so excited to have you back on Monday. I expect some good hugs are headed your way. :)

Delicious! I just knew that you'd rock this RSCC! What a fab quote - think I may steal this one from yourself and Shakespeare for myself LOL!!
Here's hoping we make Monday morning the least painful as possible!
