MAY 17, 2012***THURSDAY *** DL.ART THANKFUL THURSDAY

Good morning Everyone,
 

I am really thankful for my family.  Also, I am very happy to be home from the long trip on Tuesday, which didn't get me home until early Wednesday morning.

Yesterday I was outside and this little neighbor girl was out playing while  her father watched and talked to her. when they first moved in, (about 2 years ago) the mother had said the little girl really liked my wrought iron table and chairs that were in my front garden area and would like to sit and have a tea party (she pretends).  I had bought this with the Christmas money my mother sent me years ago, even though I don't use it, it is a reminder of my mother.  I want this little girl to have happy memories, so I gave it to her. Right at that moment the mother drove up in their truck. Perfect timing, the table and chairs were put into the back to go to their new home.

We live on a cu de sac  with 16 homes. We know all our neighbors.  I am sure I will see it again.

This is the closest image I could find to the table and chairs-- I thought the couple sitting was appropriate.
I used 7 patterned papers for this and two solids, from the Elise cartridge. The frame is from Cindy Loo and the image and the thank you are from  Sweethearts.  The ovals are from the basic shapes on the imagine and the punch is MS on a Kraft card stock base.




Challenge:
A thank you card for a family member,  neighbor, or friend using any amount of green.
The table and chairs were painted green, that is why the green for the challenge. You will have until 11:59 June 2, 2012 to enter. Have fun!

PRIZE:

$10.00


Challenges I entered this in:
BBTB2: frames
Kraft Journal: Kraft CS/thank you

Have a blessed day, Diana
