So Many Thanks! FMS119




The Retro Fresh DSP and lots of stamped thank yous from Another Thank You combine to make a fun way to say thanks! Considering the winter we are having in NY there are many people around here who deserve a huge thanks -  the mailman, the paper boy, the plow crew, that UPS guy :)  How they are all managing to keep up I will never know!  And then there is that amazing septic tank crew - that's right the septic tank crew.  During the coldest week of the winter the septic tank at our camp "went south".  My son lives there year round so we needed help as soon as possible!  A few days after our call heavy equipment showed up along with a crew who managed to dig up the old and install a whole new system in a day. Not easy when it is 12 degrees with the wind blowing off the lake and the ground is frozen!   Of course we did have to make "other arrangements" for a few days.  Notice where my son had them put that other arrangement......he decided if he had to go outside he might as well have a lake view......... 






I loved Cindy's slightly askew sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Such fun!

So fresh, Linda. I am always thinking of stamping multiple variations of a sentiment but never have- you inspire me! Love the sequin accent that just goes with everything on your card so well. My hubby has been staying at camp and commuting to work while our condo is renovated ( I get to stay with his mother)- frozen pipes and one septic issue, too! But thank goodness that he was there. It's had to be a cold trip to the potty, though for your son.

Great card, Linda! Love that DSP on the diagonal and the sequins. Glad the Candy Dots weren't left off!

Love your card and pretty papers. So sorry about the septic tank experience and you are right, a lot of people deserve thanks for working in that kind of weather. I am really thankful I live here in Florida. :)

I love your stamped background, Linda and your fabulous color scheme. I'm guessing your son would quite like to send this to the septic tank people :)

LOL, your son has your sense of humor! Good thing too to get him through the septic nightmare--wow! Love your happy card. The stamped background is the perfect mate to the main sentiment. LOVE it! Hope you're staying warm. If it makes you feel any better, it's cold here in FL too!
