Now if you came here from Michelle P then you are in the right spot. It not, you will want to start at the beginning with Tara. A complete blog line-up is located for you below my post in case you get lost along the way.

And now for my project...
I made a thank you card since you can never have too fact I am going to need quite a few since the end of the school is approaching quickly.
I used this sketch for my layout.

I selected the hot air balloon because they lift you up...just like when someone does something nice for you. It typically lifts up your spirits. Yes...another play on words/images. 

This Simply Said stamp coordinates with the sketch perfectly and I was oh so lucky to have that country heart button in my stash.
Other Materials:
My Mind's Eye paper ~ Wild Asparagus pad
Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge ~ oblong frame (p. 23) cut at 3 3/4"
black pearls
black ink
