Thank You... 41

Hi there! Hope you are off to a great start of a new week! We have been having issues with 2 out of 3 air conditioning units so we are biting the $$$ bullet and we are having them replaced today. sigh... Due to the extreme hot temps outdoors that we are experiencing, it will become a bit toasty while the units are being replaced. For me, that means I have to vacate my studio (aka: kitchen :) because it will simply be too hot and uncomfortable to play. I usually get ahead with my projects when I have a day off from work but these circumstances have thrown a curve ball right in the miidsts of mailine into my plans. (hate when that happens! stomp, stomp).


Enough whining and on to my crafty share. I made this Thank You card for dear April thanking her for helping take care of my fur babies last week while I was away.
I combined a variety of  Waltzingmouse Stamps and the fun patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Declaration collection. Don't be fooled by its name and color sheme! The 
For sketch inspiration, I played along with the paper players Sketch Challenge:

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be Sweet :)


***I will be back Tuesday with an all new FTTC and then starting Thursday, Waltzingmouse Stamps June previews!!!
