Another Thank You

It is truly a miserable day here is southeast Pennsylvania.
Intermittent showers, chilly, dreary, yuck!
My grandson has a ball game this evening, 
but I'll be surprised if that happens. 

Things are looking up!  
My DH just brought in the mail and there's a package for me. 
I really want to tear into it.
However, restraint is in order if I want to finish this post.

Yesterday, while making a few DT cards, I die cut a piece of cs, added adhesive, stuck it on the card, decided I didn't like it, carefully peeled it back off the card, and needed a place to put a sticky die cut.  Rooting through my closest box of dp, I came across a piece that matched the die cut.  This particular piece of paper was a freebie from inside one of my craft magazines and a bit on the thin side.  I usually like to emboss these papers.  Finding a NBUS embossing folder I forgot I had, the card became a Thank You.  
And that, my friends, is how this creation came to be.
I took the photo on a wonky angle so you could see the embossing.
 The die cuts are from ODBD; the stamp is by CTMH; and the flowers were fussy cut from the remaining piece of dp and popped.


Normally, on Tuesday afternoons I am happily in the company of some crafty friends making CTMH cards in Joyce's basement.  However, no class today.  But here are the cards we made last week:

 And the 4th card we attempted to make just didn't work out. 
 I brought mine home, used some of the pieces and made this one.

Now, I am going to open my  package.
Please Do Not Disturb!
