Another Thank You

Another Thank You! Thank You cards are fun I am enjoying these.
Each one is very different because you can tailor it to the taste
of each person.  This is for my friend Doreen who also is a 
terrific friend. We were on our way to NY together when 
I received the news about my Grandmother and my cat.
She was the best through all of it.  Some people like
to solve your problems (That is soooo me) and others
are very uncomfortable with bad news, but she 
was totally there for me.  She let me cry, let me 
talk, and really listened.  Then when we got home
we also took a girls day and shopped. 
I am sorry to keep going on about my woes.
I am actually much better. Just trying to explain 
how each of my friends have helped me.  Do not
want to keep dredging it up, but I am very appreciative
to have such great people in my life.

Inside- After I had the front all done I realized I had
taped everything down wrong. Fortunately It was
the correct side, so I kept it this way.
 Used liquid pearls on the flowers inside the card.

This color scheme was used a month ago for the play date cafe
and I could not figure out how to make it work. Then I bought this 
paper pack and just HAD to put it with yellow! This is 
an unusual combination for me, but I like it!
Wish I had this paper last month! Oh well!
I mentioned in the last post that my friends see things
that remind them of me and just have to get it.
Here is what Doreen bought because she thought of me
when she saw it. Guess where it lands every time
you spin it? Yup, on take a nap!!
That is what people think of me! LOL!
I think she thought of me because it matches by
entrance way perfectly! Yeah that it is it!
NOT! but that is OK I love it!

Oh, Stacey, your cards are always so beautiful!!! One card from you is like 3 cards from me, because you style up the inside pages so beautiful!! I must start doing this too...
LOVE the color combination of your card!
Have a great Sunday!
Well, I had some bad mood days, but feel a little better now. It´s not that I´ve problems - I think I´m just silly sometimes - or perhaps it´s a midlife crisis? Who knows. Sometimes I feel very sad about things, where other people would just shrug their shoulders and forget it. I´ve to learn that!
It´s good to hear, that your mood is a little better, too! Would you come over and clean my house, too? :-) Just kidding :-) I´m doing my laundry at the moment...

Benzi said...

What a wonderful 'thank you' and I'm so sorry for your losses. But, friends are so wonderful to get us through those times. Your card is beautiful in black and white with added yellow.
Beautifully done! Thanks for joining the Stampin B's die cut challenge this week. BTW, cute, fun spinner from your friend.

Dorcas said...

It came out nice, Stacey! I really like the inside, so see mistakes can be good, right? I love the flower spinner Doreen gave you too but I think that "take a nap" should be "eat more chocolate" lol and then I want one too!
THose button brad things are so awesome too.
Great card!

I really like the pretty little accents on this card, they all come together very well! And that sentiment is lovely too, very fitting.
