many thanks

I've been remiss and have a couple of things that I need to give thanks for. So, first off, here's a card that fits the occasion.

The birds are by Stampendous. The greenery and the sentiment are by Verve. All were stamped using Memento dye inks. The flowers are just clear glue applied randomly with Flower Soft sprinkled on top. The embossing was made using a picket fence wood die cut and my Big Shot.

My apologies to the award-givers. I really appreciate the awards and I'd been hoping to find some time to link a number of blogs. Time keeps getting away from me though, and yesterday a Jeep Wrangler tangled with the back end of my minivan at a four-way stop. Probably wouldn't have been so bad if the jeep hadn't had the big winch on the front of it. ARGH! So now I'm dealing with insurance and repair estimates etc. Such fun. 'Nuff said about that though. I didn't want to let any more time go by without at least acknowledging the awards and the award givers.

This is the third time I've received this award. This time it comes from Heather G. Thank you so much, Heather!

This second one is from Lori, and isn't it a cute one! Thanks, Lori!

I appreciate the awards. Sometimes I still can't get over the idea that there are people who actually come by here regularly, so to be given awards on top of receiving comments or seeing the counter tick off visits is really kind of a thrill. Makes my day brighter. :-) Thanks again!

Now, back to making those phone calls....


  1. Love your card, Jay! I love the use of the embossed fence with the flowers. TFS

  2. Thanks, Cindy! It was one of those ideas that I got into my head and I just had to try it. Then it just cried out for some flowers to climb on it. Love that Flower Soft!

  3. Jay, your card is just wonderful and I love the way you used the Flower Soft!

  4. Where do you find flower soft? Thanks Lorraine

  5. I've bought Flower Soft online at a couple of places. The first time was at, and the second time at the US Flower Soft site that I'd linked up above in my post: Both places were very quick shipping my orders, so I'd recommend either one.
