Papertrey Peeps January Challenge.

I think I made it just under the wire. Rhonda issued the first challenge of this year - to make a thank you card and send it.
I wanted to play with Debbie Olson's design ever since I saw it. I removed the center circle from the Mat Stack 3 and the card front. This was my first time shading on patterned paper. I cut out the carnation and adhered it to the inside of the card and added two sentiments from Big & Bold Wishes.

I want to start by thanking all the sweet members of our Peeps group for their prayers and condolences this past month and for all their support and understanding throughout 2010. I won't bore everyone with all the details. You can read some here.

In particular, gratitude and appreciation are being sent to Terry for keeping us going, and especially to her daughter, Emilia, for sending us each a beautiful cyber cake on our Birthday. Thank you for making the day special. It was so wonderful to see it when we got home. And I promise I will send the card.

I must run now. Be back soon since I understand the next challenge is up and ready. Thank you all!
