For 6 months, I have been waiting for this day.  My friend Eletha is coming home!  Read more about her here.

Eletha card thanks
 One of the things that she is most concerned about is having thank you cards to send.  Finally something that I could do!  Making a purse full of thank you cards was truly therapeutic for me.

Although both the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper & the Painted Petals Stamp Set are on the retired list, it was perfect for my project for Eletha.  The cards & the purse with some alterations was cased from Chaki Haverstick.

The card stock trim is Daffodil Delight.  The handle trim is a Candy Dot Base  filled  with a Daffodil Delight Candy Dot.  The bow on the handle is tied with 3/4" Chevron Island Indigo Ribbon – also retiring. 

The tag from One Tag Fits All is stamped with Pacific Point Ink and the sentiment from Painted Petals is stamped with Daffodil Delight Ink.  

Here's hoping that the 20 notecard thank you cards will be just what my friend needs!
